Outlook lagging at startup...

Just applied Service Pack 1 to our Exchange server and have noticed one
little problem...every time Outlook is started up, there is a 30 second lag,
then the user is prompted that Outlook couldn't contact the server (timeout
looking for). However, as soon as you click the [RETRY] button, it is up and
running just fine.

Any ideas?

Thanx.

Is there a way to start Outlook 2003 at Startup in the Vista operating system?

I am setting up a new Dell PC running Windows XP. When I startup I get a
message saying "Microsoft Outlook - Either there is no default mail client
or the current mail client can't fulfull the messaging request. Run
Nicrosoft Outlook and set up it as the default mail client. This message
appears twice at startup". When I check Outlook it says in Options/Mail
Delivery/Accounts that I have a mail delivery account setup as default. So
now I am stumped as to what to do" to eliminate the two startup error
messages.

Due to a PC serious crash I was forced to reinstall Outlook 2007.
During the import of my old pst file (saved for emergency), the data
acquisition stopped and Outlook freezed (may be the pst was
corrupted).
After several attempts to clear the problem I unistalled again the
program, but, at new install, Outlook locks at startup as it seems to
load the corrupted pst data.
I made many and many trials to clear the situation ( delete .dat
files, use of command mode clearing/resetting parameters, use of
Windows Install Clean up utility etc) without any good result.
I am unable to fully clean the first failed installation.
Pls help to make a new clean install (as at the first time) in order
to avoid the loading of old pst data.
Thanks

I have installed outlook 2010.

But at startup, I've been scratching my head why outlook at startup internally accesses Zune.net and another microsoft website.

I consider it a privacy issue, and MS privacy statement on Microsoft on Outlook 2010, even does not mention that Outlook seems to query certain unknown information.

 

Ive been looking at the COM add-ins and disabled the ones I don't need, but it still accesses zune.net. So, where to disable things to get this right?

office outlook 2003 (11.8118.8122) SP2 outloook automatically sends and
receives at startup.....is it possible to over-ride this feature?
i would prefer to make the decision when I am ready....I am happy delving in
the registry if this is required to make such a change

I see a million posts for people that do want it to send and receive
at startup. I want it to NOT send and receive at startup, but I do
want it to auto send & receive every X minutes. So, when I start
Outlook, it would wait 10 minutes, for instance, or until I click the
button, to send and receive.

Ideas?

I am using XP SP2 and Office 2007. My outlook is crashing at start-up. It
worked fine and then after I downloaded some updates from MSFT (IE 7.0), it
now crashes at startup. Diagnostics can't find anything. All other
applications seem to be running well. Thanks for feedback!!

I just had a very strange problem.
Suddenly my Outlook would hang for a minute or so at startup, then work
fine. After checking that it would do it with any account, I launched netstat
in a command prompt before and while it hanged, I found out that during the
hang, the following line showed up in netstat:
TCP host:XXX planet02.HHI.FRAUNHOFER.DE:http CLOSE_WAIT

This line only appears when outlook starts, and while it hangs. Like Outlook
is trying to access this and cannot.
I researched this on the Web I came up with this site:
http://fall.cs.princeton.edu/codeen/rrds/planet02hhifraunhof erde/graphs.htm
Which seems yo be a proxy server.

I seem to have gotten rid of the problem by doing a repair and reset from
within Outlook, but I am concerned by what could have created this problem,
and that something may have installed something on my system.

Any input or suggestion are appreciated.

Dear All

I have Outlook 2003 SP2 on laptop (cached mode) and it keeps crashing at
startup (application hang in event viewer). I do not want to uninstall and
re-install Office 2003 as this user has tweaked their outlook so much that it
will be a headache to put it back.

If I try and install SP3 for Office 2003 it fails with msi errors, this is
where the issue is. Has anyone seen this issue beofre?

Thanks

In Outlook Express I can tell the program to NOT retrieve my email at
startup, but for some reason I haven't been able to find any way to keep
Outlook 2007 to act the same way.. So at startup every time it runs out and
gets all new email.. At times I would rather it not do so..
Any help would be great!!

Does anyone know how to set up Outlook to begin at startup?

I got 3 questions:

1) How do I get outlook 2010 to minimize in the system tray at startup? Is VBA code, like, Autoexec command needed for this?

2) How can I get outlook 2010 to send email attachments from word without it opening up?

3) Everytime I click on an online link to add an appointment to my calendar, an appointment window pops up ALONG WITH, unfortunately, Outlook 2010 itself. Its very annoying. I just want to see the appointment window, not Outlook itself. How can I do this?

Hi Everyone,

I set up a new profile in Outlook 2010 to solve a problem, removed it and I still get the dialog box everytime I start Outlook 2010 asking which profile to use even though it lists 1! I then tell it to use this one as default by checking the checkbox but it still asks everytime I open Outlook, AAAARRRRRGGGGHHH it is driving me mad. Please, please, please can someone tell me how to stop the profile dialog box coming up at startup?

how can I run my macro at startup of outlook

Basically, my views in Outlook 2007 are set up to sort messages by
'Received', in ascending order (Oldest message is at the top, new messages on
the bottom). Problem is, sometimes when I go back into Outlook, the oldest
message is the one Outlook opens at startup, and not the last message I read
(or new messages for that matter). I end up having to scroll down to the
bottom of the list to view my most recent messages.

Anyone know what causes this, and how it can be corrected?

Thanks,
Rick

Outbox is empty! What message is it sending?

I take my laptop from home to work every day. At startup, Outlook works
great at work and at home. However, at home, whenever bring my laptop out of
standby, it takes almost 10 minutes to get mail. It says something like 8B
out of 58B under the status bar - even short emails... At work, it startups
as fast as normal...

I have Outlook 2003 11.8118.8132 and Windows XP updated recently.

I have installed Office Beta approx. 2 months ago and suddenly
(since July 19th) I couldn't start Outlook anymore.
Message displayed:
The file CRYPT32.DLL is incompatible with MS Office Outlook.
Install Outlook again.

And then I see foll. message:
Outlook failed to start correctly last time. Starting Outlook in safe mode
will help you correct or isolate a startup problem in order to succesfully
start the program. Some functionality may be disabled in this mode.
Do you want to start Outlook in safe mode?

Clicking yes brings the same pop-up:
The file CRYPT32.DLL is incompatible with MS Office Outlook.
Install Outlook again.

Following message pops up:
Outlook failed to start in safe mode.
Would you like to start "Detect and Repair"?

Choosing yes starts the installating wizard, after which
I receive the final message:
Installing of MS Office 2007 Beta failed.

And then it's over.

Re-installing Outlook doesn't work, nor does de-installing, repairing
and even removing etc etc
I am stuck with Outlook and I am using Outlook Express instead, just
to be able to read my mail etc but I would like to have a workable Outlook
again.

Any help?

I've installed MS Outlook. My first effort was to set it up with my
exchange server. When I try to open it I keep getting an error message
saying

"The connection to the Microsoft Exchange Server is unavailable. Outlook
must be online or connected to complete this action."

At the same time I get an additional configuring outlook message saying

"Configuring Outlook Accounts, creating Welcome Message.

When I click OK I get the Microsoft Exchange Server box to enter the
exchange server and mailbox. When I click ok I get another error message
saying

"Unable to open your default e-mail folders. The information store could
not be opened."

When I click ok again MS Outlook exits and ends.
This has happened no matter what I do. It¹s like groundhog day. I tried
uninstalling and re-installing Outlook several time but I keep getting stuck
in this trap.

Anybody??
Thanks,
M. Niemi

I do not get an error message only the question asking if I want to send it
to Microsoft. This seems to happen almost every time I start my computer (I
have Outlook open at startup).
