    Win 2k SP-4 slows Outlook? (Outlook 2002 (SP-2))

    Has anyone noticed a performance drop and and an increased frequency of "Requesting data from server" messages in Outlook
    after installing SP-4?

    My Outlook is dragging and I'm trying to eliminate some of the usual suspects.

    (edited to indicate Win2k instead of Office XP---duh)

    Thanks,
    Arianna

    I'm relieved to know someone else is experiencing the same problem. I have been looking at MS knowledge bank and several other sources to find out what is causing this. The best guess I have so far is the hotfix kbb24146. I am having this issue on my one win2k machine which has SP4 (just installed last week), and also three WinXP SP1 - it is MUCH worse on WinXP systems. The reason why I'm thinking it is kbb24146 is that is the last update that all my systems (including my server) had installed (last Thursday and Friday).

    Thanks,
    Rich
