Outlooks 2007 periodically hangs or stalls while typing a message [message #179795] Mon, 18 June 2007 16:41 Go to next message

I have been trying to figure out what parameter might be responsible for
outlook periodically (as in every 10-15 seconds) hanging, or stalling while I
type a message - the display hangs, I wind up typing ahead, then I have to
wait for it to catch up to fix my typing errors, which is very irritating.
This does not happen anywhere else on this brand new DELL 640m high end XP
pro Office 2007 PC, only in Outlook. Is this an outlook bug or a parameter?
I have been turning off things like the Norton virus detectors and so forth,
trying to find a way to fix it. All the hardware and software diagnostics
say 'OK' and all the up0dates are applied to everything. Any ideas? Thanks!

In Outlook 2003, I had the same problem, but not on a Dell and without that
add-in. After I turned off the Outlook feature "Use autocorrect when Word
isn't the email editor", my problem went away.

I've been silently cussing out my new Dell since I installed Outlook
2007.....not sure what took me so long to google the problem, but I'm glad I
did....I followed your advice and voila..no more problem.

Thanks!
