microsoft outlook running slow or not connecting

Hi, 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.

AM about to change to gmail which is much faster. None of solutions offered have made any difference, and since both Yahoo and Gmail WORK it is clearly an Outlook problem.
