I think I have made a discovery. After upgrade to 5.5 SP1 and a few client
computers with NT 4.0 SP4 peple have noticed a slow boot up of Outlook. The
problems seem to be with 95, 98 and NT 4.0 SP3 users. I tried everything
and everyone kept saying check the binding order.. or Name resolution
system, since it does take more than 20sec to ping a name. Everthing seem
to check out. So I tried upgrading the people with NT 4.0 SP3 to SP4 and
that improved boot up from 5-10minutes to less than 1minute. But now it
seems that the Win 95 and 98 computers are still slow. There is a patch for
these systems. I thought upgrading all the NT users to SP4 would lower the
net traffic and maybe help the 95 and 98 users. But so far no luck. I have
2 more NT computers to upgrade and maybe that will do it.
Anyone else have any ideas?
