How large is your mailbox? I often find that when I let my mailbox get
too large, it gets slow. Remember that the Exchange Server will "read"
your whole mailbox into (ram/paging) on the fly, if your too big, it
slows down.

For some reason, When I select a message in my Inbox, the message takes
about two minutes to come up, with or without the preview pane.  When I
try this in any other folder, it works fine.  This delay also occurs
when I send a message and when I update my rules.

I've also try this on another machine with the same problem.   OWA also
times out upon logging on. I know this has something to do with MY
mailbox on the server.  Other users are not experiencing this problem.

What could cause this slow down?

My setup:
MS Exchange 5.5, Outlook 2000
