opening outlook express 6

  [DELETED] 09:57 22 Sep 2003

Hi all,

I am using outlook express 6 and it seems to take about 40 seconds at least to open.
My co worker is also using this program and his opens straight away.
The only difference in computers is that his has more ram than mine.
Anybody got any clues?

To start with, galatic door, make sure it's not stuffed full of emails with attachments, check that the folders, Inbox, Sent Items, Deleted Items, any you've created yourself, etc. are cleared out of all unnecessary emails. Yes more memory helps, if you have very little to begin with.

I am only running 128mb ram
It is not stuffed full of emails with attachments either so could that be the cause?

Have you removed or disabled MS Messenger? Look at this earlier posting click here

Has Messenger ever been installed on your system? I was under the impression that it normally is with Windows installation. If it has then the two registry entries which are known to cause this slowdwon might well be still there. I would suggest you check anyway, if only to elinate them as causing the slowdown.
