Outlook XP, long wait till it dials phone number

System: IBM Aptiva 2170: K500: 256Mg of 133PC Ram: OS - 98se.

Since I installed Office Pro XP. Outlook has started taking an awfully long time to dial the chosen phone number.

I am sure that there is a way to cut this waiting time down, but having read all the options I am no wiser.

In IE -tolls-internet options-connections and uncheck 'perform security check before dialling'. This is from 98 but IIRC, XP is the same set up.

I tried that, however, it is not the dialing onto the internet that is the problem, in fact that has been unaffected.

I use Contacts in Outlook an my landline Dialer. I'm lazy and hate having to dial every telephone call I make, but sometimes if I don't click the Dial Icon before I pick up the phone, BT times the call out.
