How to stop Office/Outlook 2003 from synchronizing

By ebecca ·
This seems to be a common and frustrating problem, and I haven't been able to find an answer anywhere. My computer periodically tells me that Microsoft Office 2003 is synchronizing folders. While it's doing that - and it takes awhile - not much else can happen. I use only one computer, and I have nothing to synchronize. Can anyone tell me how to turn off synchronization?
Thanks so much!

Just on Exchange server connected

This measure would just work for machines that are connected to Exchange servers as the Views are defined only there??? Your action sounds really weird to me..

It does not always work...

by rdpflueger In reply to I HAVE THE REAL SOLUTION

I unchecked every folder in my mailbox, but it did not resolve the problem. I am running Outlook 2007 SP2 and Vista Ultimate SP2. Not connected to any Exchange server... email account is POP3 from AT&T. Problem seems to get worse if I enable my Microsoft Live account in Outlook.

How about you start your own NEW question.......

by ThumbsUp2 In reply to It does not always work.. ...

The original post is about 3 years old and asks questions about Office 2003 and XP, NOT 2007 and Vista.

Start your own NEW question and describe your system specs there.

This does not work for me. I do not seem to have the check box that you refer to. Any other suggestions? I am using MS Office 2010.
