    I am using the Bitdefender anti-virus program. I have Bitdefender set to do a complete system scan every night. In the morning if I do not reboot my system before checking my email Outlook 2007 hangs during mail retrieving. This is very frustrating. Any Ideas?

    If BitDefender lets you exclude files or folders, try excluding your Outlook data file and see whether that helps. The usual location of your file depends on your OS; see Where does Microsoft Office Outlook 2007 save my information and configurations? - Outlook - Microsoft Office Online.

    (While malware certainly may lurk in messages, file-based antivirus is a dangerous tool for scanning email files.)
