I'm having increasing problems with OL 2003. It frequently "freezes" during message downloads, gives "the operation failed" or other dead end error messages that don't give you any hint what is wrong.

I have at least one of these problems every day. The "freeze" issue resolves only by exiting and relaunching outlook. the other problems resolve only by rebooting.

Any ideas about what steps to take to troubleshoot or correct would be greatly appreciated. I almost never had a problem of any kind with prior versions of outlook. I am running Junk-out (and was with the last two versions also). I am running Norton Internet Security and NAV. I do all the microsoft updates on the automatic update basis.

thanks for any idea or help at all....
