We are receiving numerous complaints from users that their email is terribly 
slow.   They are reporting slowness in switching from one message to another, 
opening messages, sending messages, etc.  

The server does not appear to be running at capacity, users are limited to 50MB 
mailbox size.  Server is Exchange 2000 SP3, clients are OL2000 (CW).  I have 
emptied the badmail directory (only 4500 entries there), did not make any 
difference.   Users that report slowness are located both locally (same bldg as 
the server) and remotely (across T1).  Server is holding app 780 mailboxes (4 
databases)  plus public store;     Total Info Store size is approx. 40GB. 

Has anyone else experienced this? Are there any suggestions of what to try or 
where to start looking for bottlenecks? 

Thanks!
