It's amazing what a clean install will cure! :-) I use to use Outlook.
Used OE for a minute or so.

I don't have as much starting up as I use to have, that's for sure. 
What I have is a MSI MB (too lazy to look up the specs). AMD Athlon 2500
(Barton), 1GB 400mhz ram, 2-80GB drives one 200GB SATA drive. (soon to
be two) MSI GeForce FX-5200 video card. A CD burner, a DVD burner and a
DVD-ROM drive. Not a screamer, but maybe one day I'll be able to get
that "ultimate" computer. :-)
