Hi guys, don't if anyone else has had (or still has) this problem which i still have Windows Mail is still darn slow. (had same problem with IE7 but its working fine now)

I've found this: http://groups.google.com/group/microsoft.p...199dbd?lnk=raot and found this one too: http://www.vistax64.com/tutorials/72674-wi...-mail-slow.html

But don't think its helped. I even tried Office Outlook 2003 but it has same problem.

It mentioned that going into the calendar (in windows mail) and it will run normal. Tried that, and yes it runs great. But going into the calendar everytime you open Windows mail is stupid. So would uninstalling SpyBot the way to go (as it seems to mention the incompatability with Vista in there?

I'm with you there. If I have more than about 20 messages in my inbox, it takes ages to show the next message and preview pane. So my only solution is to keep my inbox to a minimum.

Sorry, can't offer any solution.

well i have been to the Spybot site and if you read in here: http://www.safer-networking.org/en/index.html you'll see that there will be a new version (1.5) coming for Vista (it won't be certified but has a works with Vista logo) so this may be a sign for good hope)....

Thanks Izzy. Fingers crossed. I always check for updates each time. I hope v1.5 works because win mail is driving me insane !!

Hi Izzy, i to have the same prob with win mail, very slow to open email's, its very rare i keep emails very long so its mostly empty and the prob persists.
My remedy was to download Mozilla Thunderbird 2 and set it as default mail client, it works great on vista and is simple to use.
Good luck,,,, Ian

Windows mail loads faster with Firefox 2.0.0.6 than it does with IE7

I'm on dial-up, so I need to find the quickest route I can :huh:

i scrapped windows mail.

Now using Outlook 2007.

Once the Fax Extension was fixed so i didn't get the stupid message when replying to a email, it goes great.

I did use thunderbird but didn't like it much, only that it WORKED properly compared to Windows Mail.

IE7 was doing the same thing at one stage too and resorted using Firefox. BUt IE7 is going good now so i'm using IE7 again. Firefox is still installed incase.
