I have been using hotmail for years now with very few problems.Since having to change to Outlook,with no choice in the matter,I am becoming increasingly frustrated with how Outlook is running/operates.For one,the actual layout,including hard to see highlighting,is poor.Also it runs slow,even when I'm not doing anything else,and quite a lot of the time is 'unable to connect to Outlook at this time',even though all other websites/programmes etc work fine.
Anyone else having these problems and ,if so,are they just teething troubles?
Any advice given is most appreciated.Thanks.
When Outlook is running much slower than normal, try running Outlook in cached mode.
If problem still exists then you need to optimize your PC and also optimize internet to fix this issue. If problem still exists then use system utility tool like PCFresher, it will not only optimize PC but will also optimize internet to it's peak performance.
I have exactly the same problem. I use Chrome, IE8 and CoolNova and Firefox in xp. It is slow to respond and freezes. It's utterly useless. I also have the same problem using Vista and IE9. I've complained and asked if it's possible to revert to Hotmail but to no avail.
But I suppose you have to put up with these things if we use free emailing.
Even my Yahoo account was hacked into for the purpose of spamming, from a mobile in Egypt on Saturday.
