Slow Outlook 2007? Some workarounds...

I discovered Microsoft published this knowledge base article with some ideas for fixing slow-downs in Outlook 2007 with large local mail stores.

However their solutions aren't really all that helpful since they require reducing the size of the .pst by archiving or switching Outlook to online mode, which means you don't have a local email cache when disconnected from the Exchange server.

Personally I think its a step backwards in this day and age to expect people to chop down their email stores because Outlook 2007 is slower than 2003. Apparently this is due to the new .pst structure requiring increased disk access with higher quantities of email but I really hope MS can come up with something better in a future update.

In the meantime there are some trouble shooting ideas I plan to work through on the Round Trip Solutions blog.

I tried all these but the link http://www.expertcore.org/viewtopic.php?f=13&t=2188 helped me to sort the Outlook 2007 slow problem.
