    Working Cursor (MSO 2007)

    What would make my cursor keep looking like it's busy? It's often, but intermittent, and it only happens in Outlook.

    Extremely distracting!

    How many accounts do you have setup & how often do you have Outlook set to do a send/receive? Do you run Autoarchive? What addins do you have running?

    Joe, I have 8 accounts, but none are set to auto send/receive.

    The add ins I run are either part of the Ultimate install, or Kaspersky (Firewall/AV).

    Do you use Unified Messaging, Groove, SharePoint, or Mobile? Any of those could be rtrying to access a server with some regularity. Do Kaspersky automatically update spam or a/v definitions?

    No, no, no, and no.

    I'll see if disabling them will help. It does seem to speed up loading.

    Thanks Joe.

    If this is a new install or you just added a large e-mail account it could be the e-mail indexer just working away. How long has this been going on?

    Re: Working Cursor (MSO 2007)

    Joe:

    Since I just purchased the Office Ultimate, just yesterday I went back and re-set up all my Office programs. And the data file (PST) is fair-sized (1.8 gigs).

    I hadn't even thought of that!

    So I should just give it a couple days to "settle down"? Is there a setting that would / could set it so that indexing would only be at certain times, or during certain levels of inactivity?

    Regards,
    Chuck Billow

    I don't think you can in the Vista UI.
