    Computer apps slow with Outlook open (O2K on WIN98SE)

    When I have Outlook open *all* other apps are slow to respond. Even something as simple as windows explorer. I have uninstalled find fast and journaling is not on. I have found this a common problem with Outlook 97/98/2K. Is this a common problem or just me? <img src=/S/smile.gif border=0 alt=smile width=15 height=15>

    If you are using Norton Anti Virus you might take a look at this article at MSKB regarding the scanning activities slowing things down:

    IF you have chosen Word as your e-mail editor, you might try turning that off also. My own experience is that Outlook is simply very hungry when it comes to use of RAM. Using Word as your Outlook email editor makes Word run in the background the entire time Outlook is loaded; increasing the burden still further.

    Thanks, but I *always* use plain text for email.

    Has it always been like this, or is this a change? If the latter, can you pinpoint when, and if there were any changes to the system around that time?

    It has been like this since the original install, on all of my WIN98se machines. (Home desktop, work desktop and my portable). I am wondering if it is something to do with a MS Mail Postoffice. That is the only *unusual* app that I install relating to Outlook.
