Outlook 2007 slow on closing and crashes on open

Hi there, since I upgraded to Outlook 2007 it does not close fast and sometimes I force the shutdown of the machine causing the outlook to crash and then have to be repaired. Is there any way around this? Can I close the outlook faster or make the repair process a bit faster?

It is very annoying waiting half an hour for it to close and then 1 hour to open(after I force close it).

Please help this thing is driving me crazy!

Find SCANPST.EXE

In XP here: 'C:\Program Files\Common Files\System\MSMAPI\1033'
In Vista here: C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office12

Close Outlook and run SCANPST.EXE

Restart machine

Open Outlook (you may have to wait for it to sync folder)

click on Tools \ Options
click on the Other tab and click the AutoArchive button.

Set archiving for your personal folder, the shorter the time, the better outlook will run. (I used 8 weeks, as I have outlook 2003 on XP with no issues, all mail is there if needed later)

click the button "Apply these settings to all folders now"

Shutdown Outlook 2007

Now Compact the PST File
Control Panel > Mail > Click Data Files. Then double-click “Personal Folders” and choose “Compact now”

When done, Restart machine and open Outlook 2007.

    I tried to follow these instructions on a 32 bit Vista PC.There is no AutoArchive button in the Tools/Options/Other dialog box.

    FWIW I am running 2010 for most other Office programs. Could that be the reason?

Your computer might be using caching. Can you tell me how much RAM you have on your computer? If you have 2GB of RAM i would recommend disabling the caching. This slows down the system quiet a bit (since it uses miliseconds instead of nanoseconds). Your computer is as fast as the slowest component.  I would also suggest defragging the drive.

Office Outlook 2007 crashing everytime


Hey,

I was having the same problem with Outlook 2007 on my Laptop, looked for all the possible resolutions but no Clue..
Then I tried to check the addins I was using in Outlook 2007, I found that after disabling the unnecessary addins from Regsitry I am able to use outlook 2007 without any issues.

For Disabling the outlook addisn you have to go to:
Start> Run> Type Regedit> Hit Entre> HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE>SOFTWARE>MICROSOFT>OFFICE> OUTLOOK>ADDINS there you will find all the Addins, Please right click on the onw which is not required to go to modify & change the value to 0.
It will disable the Addins from Registry. we can enable the Addin when ever required.

Close & re launch your Outlook.

Hope this will help you in resolving the issue related to the outlook crashing.

Cheers!!!!

Upon opening my Outlook "Personal Folders" I receive an error message indicating that I improperly closed the files at last session. What is the proper procedure for closing the folders? Thanks.Bill C.


This kind of message usually occurs when the computer crashes, or Outlook otherwise closes without completing the housekeeping it normally does when you close the program. If you are working on a laptop and it didn't recover from hibernating properly that might cause this kind of problem,

If you click File, then Exit to close Outlook in the future that should minimize or eliminate the problem.

Outlook 2007 upgrade freezes on startup


You say that you have upgraded to Outlook 2007 from Outlook 2003; were you using any personal folders (.pst) in Outlook 2003?

If the asnwer is yes; then were these personal folders created in Outlook 2003 or some earlier version of Outlook? In any case, if the older type personal folders are large in size, these can cause Outlook 2007 to stop responding or freezing.

Close Outlook 2007; right click on the Outlook icon showing in the startup programs bar and choose properties; choose 'Show Profiles'; choose copy profile and then choose this new profile in the 'Always use this profile' option.

Outlook 2007 should now work fine.

Personal Data File did not close properly


Hope this solves it for you! Here's the official word from Microsoft:
If you receive one or more of these error messages, you may experience performance issues until Outlook finishes the reconciliation process for the .ost file or for the .pst file. The following gear icon is displayed in the status bar while Outlook checks the data file in the background: Collapse this imageExpand this imageol2007gearicon.jpg When this icon disappears, the .pst file or the .ost file is reconciled. If you exit Outlook while the gear icon is present, reconciliation must restart the next time that you run Outlook. We recommend that you leave Outlook running until the gear icon disappears before you exit Outlook.

An incorrectly shut down .ost file or .pst file may occur for one of the following reasons:
  • Antivirus scanning of the file
  • Forced Microsoft Windows shutdown before the Outlook.exe process shuts down completely
  • Outlook add-ins
If you see this issue frequently, and you have to exit Outlook shortly before you shut down your computer, it may be better to shut down Windows while Outlook is still running. We recommend that you do this instead of exiting Outlook and then shutting down Windows shortly after that.
