Outlook 2003 "hangs"

When replying to HTML emails Outlook hangs, I can cancel and retry but same 
again. Have decreased my PST file size to 200mb, tried running SCANPST which 
did some stuff but still extremely slow (I watched a DVD and it was ready for 
replying when I got back). IS this a commmon error? I have seen entries about 
using windows as email editor possibly being related to this issue..?

Do you have a virus scanner installed which integrates itself with Outlook? 
Uninstall this integration part of your virus scanner and try again; you'd 
still be sufficiently protected by your on-access scanner part of the virus 
scanner. For more details see;

Outlook Hangs #6
Hi I have a clients laptop with Outlook 2000 installed. Windows XP Pro OS. For no apparent reason Outlook has started playing up. It takes an ag to load and when it does altho it appears ok it cannot be used, the minute one tries to say, "reply" to an email (an mail~) or compose new mail, whatever option is chosen the system just hangs with an hourglass display. The only way out is to end the task completely. A system restore seems to work very briefly but then the problem reappears within one or two uses of Outlook. I do not want to have to wipe the whole laptop but in t...

I just installed 8.0 SP#2 (ran the script that it says to run cuz we had upgraded from previous version to remove dups in smartlist tables) and when I log into GP as sa, it hangs and CPU sits at 100%.

ClosaHandle() hangs for a long time
Hi all I'm using WinCE 6.0 and experiencing troubles with writing files to the disk (both SD card and NAND flash). CreateFile() and WriteFile() work fine, but when I call CloseHandle() it hangs system for unreasonably long time. The hangup time depends on the file size. For example, when writing a 400-KB file CloseHandle() takes about 30 seconds to finish. Does anybody know how to fix it? As I understand, WinCE does not support overlapped I/O. CloseFile flushes the file and actually writes it back to disk. You may want to check how disk cache is setup on your dev...

Outlook 2000 Hangs
Is there an issue with Outlook 2k and Exhange 2k3? One of my user send a 8 megs email message to everyone. Outlook hangs when they tried to open it. But I have 5 users using Outlook 2003 did not have any problem. Please Advice, TIA Hangs for how long? Remember that with Outlook 2000 (unless you've specified to work Offline), none of your e-mail is stored locally, so you are opening that 8mb message across the network. I'd expect some lag. Outlook 2003 uses cached mode by default, so the message would be stored locally and that is what they would be opening. Other than that, ...

Calendar hangs Entourage...suggestions
Hiya folks. I have Entourage 11.3.6 on a G4 mirror-door running 10.4.10. Whenever I click on the Calendar icon I get the rainbow ball and there's no escape but to force quit. My wife has a account and she can launch her Calendar. I've tried rebuilding, reinstalling the app, all to no avail. It just doesn't seem to like my account. I really would like to stop using the horribly outdated Now Up-To-Date and keep it all in Entourage, so any suggestions would be most appreciated. Is there a way to create a fresh account and import all my mail stuff? Thanks folks! Patrick See my...

Office X hangs after updates
I updated my Office X suite from the base install with the downloads from Microsoft for 10.1.2, 10.1.4, and 10.1.5. When I double-click on Excel, Word, or Powerpoint now, the splash scren for that app comes up and the little message on the splash screen says it is Configuring Office Components (specifically Excel). That is as far as it gets. The splash screen stays up and hangs the Mac after a while. Any ideas?

I had an incident whereby my users could not bring up outlook. Actually, the client was connecting to the information store. But when you clicked on a message to render it in the view pane outlook would hang. I'm running Exchange 2k3 sp1 on a win2k3 server. Just wondering what necessarily can cause this. It looks like the errors before this started happening were an EXCDO 8230 and 8206(calendaring messages - repeated 8 times for only one client)and an IMAPSVC 1023 about an error occuring while rendering a message for 2 clients.

ReadClient in ISAPI extension hangs
I am developing an (MFC) ISAPI extension to handle large amounts of data sent from another MFC exe client via CHttpFile::SendRequest(). The CHttpServerContext sent to my isapi extension function contains the expected data sizes (cbTotalBytes), and uses pCtxt->ReadClient() when the cbTotalBytes > cbAvailable. The problem is that ReadClient() times out without reading any data (ever), even when i request just 1 byte (let alone cbTotalBytes - cbAvailable). Note that i do successfully get the 1st 48K of data from pCtxt- >m_pECB->lpbData. The error that is returned is: &quo...

Excel embedded in email hangs Mac OS X email client
Hi, never seen this before but never really worked in a mixed environment before. We have a couple of users who use Mac OS X and the native email client. Whenever I send them something from Excel, it hangs their mail client. Doesn't matter if I send an XLS as an attachment or if I copy & paste a range out of a sheet. They have to do a Force Quit on the email app, then restart it and delete my mail without opening it. Both Macs have Office Mac installed, so MIME type is probably not a problem - or is it? Also, my current workaround is to do a Shift-Copy and paste into email...

Outlook 03 email hangs in Outbox
XP/Outlook03/Norton same problem on cable and phone with three different computers. Up until about a month ago when I typed a new email and hit send. No problem it would go out one by one. No new hardware or software other than virus and OS updates. About a month ago, emails would collect inthe outbox rather than go out individually. Now I have to go into outbox and then hit send/receive. 50% of the time all the messages except one email goes out. 40% of the time none of the email messages go out. 10% of the time I get on the cable Ox800CCCoF error message stating that cannot connect...

Outlook Connector Hangs After Send
Just started running Outlook 2007 w/ Outlook Connector. Everything (I guess) "works", but whenever I send mail, Outlook hangs anywhere from 30 secs to a few minutes. And some of the time it slows down WinXP so much that I can't do anything until the mail is sent. Have tried disabling virus scan, firewall, and Windows Search. Very annoying and frustrating! Almost ready to switch from Live Mail because of this. BUMP ...

web page launches bat, hangs
Not sure which the right fora are for this but the one obvious choice hasn't been very helpful... I have an ASP.Net page that is used to launch certain jobs using System.Diagnostics.Process, based on a config. The config also allows the web master to set which creds to use running the app - effected through psexec.exe. This had been working fine for many months, but recently the jobs spawned by psexec.exe have been hanging - specifically anything that would run through cmd.exe (bat files and the like). Any cmd.exe psexec spawn hangs and leaves a System eventlog messag...
