Perhaps add Outlook to the Exception list in the Windows firewall. That
may speed things up for you, if you haven't already done that :-)

Subject: [exchangelist] Outlook 2003 - slow to receive mail

Hi All,


I am running Exchange 2000.  I have a small network that is running some
XP/Outlook 2003 and some 2000/Outlook 2000 workstations.  Outlook works
fine on them all.  But one workstation, running XP/Outlook 2003 is very
slow to receive mail.  Every other workstation on the network will
receive an email almost instantly if I send it from another workstation.
This one delays anywhere from 45 seconds to a minute before the email
appears in the inbox.  During that waiting time if I click on
"Send/Receive" it will appear immediately.  I'm assuming I have some
parameter set wrong but I can't seem to find it.  Has anyone else
experienced this?
