    SLOW 1st Time Startup (MSO 2003)

    When I use Outlook, I also use Nelson E-mail Organizer, which loads automatically (by user choice).

    The first time I start Outlook after re-boot or initial startup, it takes a LONG time to get totally started -- about 120 seconds.

    Any subsequent startup is fairly rapid -- 20 seconds or so.

    I understand that NEO is slowing down the startup, but why only the initial startup? Is there something I can have pre-load at startup that would help facilitate the process?

    Regards,

    I don't use it myself so this is only a guess...

    Presumably as some kind of organiser, it needs to search all the folders to create some kind of index. Is it possible that there is a setting that will store this search?

    Leif:

    But even when I disable NEO from loading, so it's all Outlook, I get the same results.

    H-m-m-m-m-m.

    >>> I understand that NEO is slowing down the startup....

    Are you saying now that NEO does *not* come into the equation?

    How big is the pst in question?

    In addition to Leif's question about size (& presumably also about whether you compact your PST regularly), remember that Outlook loading more quickly on subsequent attempts is a "smoke & mirrors" trick by M$. When you "close" Outlook, M$ in fact makes Windows hold it in memory for 30 mins or more (I've never tested how long myself) to enable it to reload quickly. (Check in Task Manager on the Processes Tab to see this in action.) HTH

    Leif:

    I'm saying that I understand that the more you add on to Outlook, the more bogged down it may become. But with or without NEO, it loads faster the second time around...

    And unkamunka... it may be only after thirty minutes (or so) after which it slows down again... I'll check that one out.
