    ...but once I've opened the first, the following emails open instantly.

    This has been happening for a few months now; I can't think of any changes to my system that might be related.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks,

    Jon

    The usual culprit for Outlook Express being slow is that it is trying to log on to Messenger when it starts. In Tools/Options there's a check box to turn that off.

    Actually it's a flaw with Outlook Express. You need to exit out when you delete the items in your trash.. Another thing to do is to move all your outlook folders into a folder on your desktop and then open Outlook Express and it creates the default folders and then you import your folders back into outlook express this will speed it up ...

    Thanks, guys.

    I think my problem was that my deleted items folder had grown to enormous proportions; once I emptied, it, the problem seems to have been resolved.
