Outlook Express freezes computer

By krmincin ·
I use Windows XP Pro which has Outlook Express (OE) 6. Today, November 28, 2002, is when I first noticed that starting OE causes my computer to run slow, almost freeze, while "receiving mail" is displayed in the lower-right corner. I've tried rebooting a few times and shutting down once to no avail. I tried Outlook 97 but the same thing happens. Why?

Thanks in advance.

Outlook Express freezes computer

This typically happens if you are storing too many emails in your outlook express, Try to clear some old mails, and outlook express works well if each folder has not more than 8k-10k Emails.

Go to tools -> Options -> maintaianance and decide what all you can do
