Microsoft Outlook 2010 is running too slow.


By default, Outlook 2010 downloads both the emails and the attachments for every folder. As a result, users with mailboxes larger than 1 GB may find that Outlook takes a long time to download their messages. Previous versions of Outlook only downloaded the message headers by default. This setting was changed in Outlook 2010 to allow the program to index all content and display information about the emails and attachments each contact has sent.

Follow these steps to change this setting to only download the message headers to speed up Outlook:

  1. Run Outlook 2010
  2. Click the Send/Receive tab
  3. Click Send/Receive Groups and select Define Send/Receive Groups. This will allow you to edit settings for send/receive groups
  4. Select All Accounts and click Edit
  5. Uncheck the Get folder unread count for subscribed folders option
  6. Click the Use the custom behavior defined below option
  7. Check Inbox and any other folders that receive new mail in the Folder Options box
  8. Click OK
  9. Click Close

Our philosophy has always been honesty (this is our rule #1) and transparency in our services. There's no reason to hide costs unless you have something to hide. We've found that those who hide fees charge more successful businesses more money because they can. We do not feel this is the way America was meant to be. We believe in offering a fair price to everyone for the work that is done.

We also believe that once you sign on with us, you trust us, and as our thank you to you, we "price lock" our services for the plan(s) you signed up for at that time. This means while you are on those services, the price will always be the same. As business owners, we appreciate this as it allows us to budget our business expenses better.
