I have just converted to Outlook 2010 when I upgraded from my old Windows XP Pro PC to a Windows 7 64-bit, Xeon workstation. I had been using Outlook Express for years and got used to it responding instantly when emails were moved to folders, emails were deleted, or different folders were selected.
With this otherwise very fast workstation, Outlook does not repond instantly. There is a delay of 3 seconds to move or delete emails and about 2 seconds to change folders.
I understand the Outlook Express used a database file for each folder and Outlook uses a single PST file for everything (in my case about 3.8GB), but I still didn't expect this performance delay.
I have no active Add-ins, it responds the same way when I run Outlook in safe mode and also when I disable Norton Antivirus Autoprotect and I can't think of what else to try.
Is this how it should be, or is there something else I should do?
Your advice would be greatly appeciated.
