Outlook Hanging on Exit

By brian ·
I have a client using Outlook 2000 w/Office 2K SP3. Sometimes when exiting Outlook, it exits instantly. But occassionally it will hang with the message "Please Wait While Outlook Exits". The only way to get rid of it is to End Task. He is running XP Prof. with current updates and service packs. It used to do the same thing under XP Home Edition.

Any Ideas?

Outlook Hanging on Exit

I have had this problem also. What I had done was disabled "Empty Trash Upon Exit" option. It cleared it up for me. You can find this option under tools>options>other tab. I hope this works for you. If not let me know let me know.

Yes, I have also seen this issue. I was in an Exchange/Outlook enviroment. I tried unchecking the deleted items, as well as turning off the Exchange virus luck. What finally worked for me was recreating the user's email profile.
Hope this helps
