    Outlook 2007 Synchronizing folders??? (Outlook 2007)

    I am using office 2007. When I start Outlook an icon comes up on the task bar. Hovering the mouse over the icon says "Microsoft Office Outlook is synchronizing Folders."
    It slows the whole system down I can't stop it. I don't know what it is synchronizing with or why. Task Manager just show Outlook running and it is the Outlook.exe process that will take CPU usiage up to 99% It can 10-15 minutes,

    To my knowledge it is set up as stand alone workstation. What setting would cause this EVERY time I start Outlook if it has been off for a few hours.

    Synchronization occurs when either you have a cached Exchange accout setup or you've been working Offline. Since you say it is setup as standalone, do you work offline with Outlook ?

    I am not using Exchange, I do not use outlook off line so I do not need to sync it. I don't know where I could have set it up. I am a 'tweak to death' guy but I could use help figuring what I must have done. Or at least undoing it. No off line, No sync needed.
    Thanks

    Thinking a little more about this, synchronization occurs when you have an HTTP account such as Hotmail also. How long have you had Office 2007? Clean install or upgrade? Did it work OK with Offfice 2007 for a while? Any other network related issues?
