    i was listening to that windows podcast by leo laporte. windows weekly episode 22
    http://www.podtrac.com/pts/redirect.mp3/twit.cachefly.net/WW-022.mp3

    they said there's a MS patch that makes outlook 2007 at least twice as fast. i think this is it. i haven't tried it.

    here are some links i found about it -

    IMHO, Thunderbird does a far better job than Outlook/OE as a mail client. It's faster, safer, feature-packed and multi-platform.
    I haven't touched Outlook in ages :D

    I use outlook. Works very well for me in my business environment. I like the integration with the rest of the Office suite.

    That works well with friends, but with 130 clients, email becomes great compared to voicemail and phones.

    I second that.
    Thunderbird has another big advantage for me : it allows me to save my emails, email-address-books and email-accounts on another partition.

    I'm also a new Thunderbird advocate. It's like breathing new freshly scented air compared to what i used to depend on.
