    Synchronizing Files Holdup

    Each morning when I log on to Outlook, the computer lockups for a while doing a "Synchronizing Files" I can not do anything else until it is complete. I am not sure what it is sychronizing to, this is a home computer without a server. I am using POP/SMTP to handle email.

    POP accounts usually download. Do you have more than one email account? Is it IMAP?

    If you right click on each of the email folders and select “properties” you will see a check box: Automatically generate Microsoft Exchange views”.

    UNcheck this box on each email folder.
    You will still get a very brief “synchronizing” message, but ONLY while it is actively linking to your POP account.

    I am using Outlook 2010 and it does not have a check box labeled: Automatically generate Microsoft Exchange views”. I have looked everywhere and can not find this box.

    WSH,

    Sorry but I don't have 2010 to test. Give the advice in this link a try, read all the way to the bottom.
