Keyboard responds slow

Suddenly I experience a long delay between pressing a key and the display on screen. This only occurs in Outlook 2003. All other Office programs and Internet forms work fine. I changed from HTML to Rich Text and it still slows down. Then it works perfect for a while then starts slowing down again. The only way I can use it consistently is to make Word my text editor, which I do not want.

I have defragged, cleaned my hard drive, cleared history and cache, and rebooted several times, but the problem persists. Any ideas? I have used this since the release of Office 2003 with no problem.

Cannot attach zip-files

I’ve got a user who is trying to send an email with an Excel file and a Winzip-file attached to it. When she browses for the files, she can see all the Word and Excel files in the folder, but none of the Winzip files appear, and thus, she can’t attach them.

How can she attach a zip-file again?

Link instead of attachment?

I’ve updated a file on our network and I want to send it to my colleague for review. Since we can both access the networkshare I want to send it as a link but Outlook blocks shortcuts (lnk-files).

Do I really have to send the file now instead?
