Speed of Outlook on Exchange

By Analyticus ·
Stand alone version of Outlook on WXP.
Under the "Activities" tab of a contact in MS Outlook, a search can be performed to return various items that can be specified - and it is a very slow search.

Is anyone familiar with the speed of this particular function with Outlook running in a MS Exchange Server environment?
Does it return results any faster?

Server Spec's - 750 Mhz PII, 1.5 GB RAM, SCSI HDD's running W2K SP4
Client Spec's - 2.6 GHz P4, 248 MB RAM, IDE HDD running WXP
Switched LAN running @ 100 Mbps

Increase the RAM in both workstation and server.

Have the Global Catalog servicing the Exchange server maxed out on memory.

Have limited processes running on the global catalog.

That function is known as a deep LDAP query and is memory-hoggy.

BFilmMan provided some recommendations and info... but I need to know - with the given configuration, would this search process be any faster if an Exchange Server was involved?

The server is the ONLY one we have and investing in the clients is not in the plan.
