Hi,

I'm running a stand-alone (no exchange server) version of Outlook 2003. Everytime I launch it (and at other times, too), it goes through many minutes of the task: "Microsoft Office Outlook is synchronizing folders." This uses almost all my system resources, and I can't do anything else while this is happening. I've unchecked the "Automatically Generate Exchange Views" checkbox on all my Outlook folders, but it still does it. It's very frustrating. Would anyone have any advice? Thank you.

You may try the following methods to solve the issue:

1) Try to Unmark "Leave a copy of messages on the server"

2) Go to Tools =>Send / Receive =>Send / Receive Settings =
Disable Scheduled Send / Receive => Finish

thanks
