I appreciate your responses.  I did look for KB articles at both Symantec
and Microsoft sites but didn't find much.  Last night I tried sending myself
an email and it worked fine, and it seems to be fine today.  I
double-checked the emails that I received during the problem and none were
especially large files.

I suppose for now I'll have to be satisfied without knowing what caused the
slowing/almost freezing performance.  But I'm thankful it's working!!

Again, thanks for being there, everyone.
