I am using Outlook 2000 with XP SP3 on my workstation. I have Outlook 2000 installed on other machines and it runs much faster. After reading old threads, I started Outlook in safe mode and it ran much faster. It seems to only be slow when there is a window open like when I double click to read an entire email. I found my extend.dat file and renamed it and restarted Outlook without any real speed improvements. I seem to have tracked it down to when I use the preview pane to view emails. When I turn that off, it seems to speed things up especially when navigating away from an open Outlook window to another program. I really like the preview pane. Is there any way to keep this option and still speed up my outlook? Thanks.
 
What addins are installed? It could be slowed by an addin. I haven't used Outlook 2000 in 10 years, so I'm not sure exactly where the Addins dialog is. Tools, Options, maybe on the Other tab?

Are you using Word to read RTF messages? Disable that option in Tools, Accounts - mail format tab I think.
 
Thanks for the reply. I have not installed any additional add-ins that were not installed at installation. I believe the ones installed are: Delegate Access, Deleted item recovery, net folders, Exchange extension commands, Exchange extensions property pages, Windows CE support, Redemption Helper Outlook Extension, This is happening on only 1 of 4 desktops I have that are running Outlook 2000 with my Windows 2003 Exchange Server. I remotely get mail both using OWA and my iPhone without issues. I am not using Word to read .rtf messages. This is an old machine and only a recent problem. I do save either a .pst or .ost of my mail on a separate folder of my server every month. I just wondered if the lag was outlook trying to find the .pst across the network but I don't think that is the problem. Any suggestions other than the fdisk/reformat/waste a day rebuilding??
