Thanks to Kurt Conway for pointing this out in the comments.There may be a group policy available for this but demand has not been that great, I will see if I can load the new policies up and check but in the meantime you can try this. Now click on advanced and scroll down to where you see “Disable hardware graphic acceleration” – Simply place a tick in the box, restart Outlook and it should be a lot faster.So, in case that this is your scenario, the only advice that I can offer is: Be patient and read the information 🙂 By default, Outlook client is configured with the option of cache mode.
Each time we open Outlook, the synchronization process start and stop in the middle, for some reason, we cannot figure. The less good news is that there are many grounds for this issue, and there is no “magic” solution that will help us to solve the synchronization problem in “one click.”In this article, we review the cases and the troubleshooting steps for mitigating optional causes for Outlook synchronization problems in Office 365 environment and review the specific charters of Outlook and Exchange Online environment.
I know that this article could consider as “long and tedious” but the Murphy law dictates that: most of the Outlook synchronization problem accrues to “VIP Users,” that usually demand a solution!
Using a local copy of the Mailbox content should significantly improve the Outlook performance (response time) because access to the “data” (Mail items) created by using a local copy of the Mailbox that stored on the local drive.
Instead of “fetching” the mail from the remote Mailbox, each time a user click on the mail item.
Now I’m not one to complain (too much) but if my local PC a quad core beast was taking 15 seconds to return results from a couple of hundred contacts, how can Google return 53,000,000 results when searching for the same contact?
Anyway after a couple of months worth of persevering I decided to look for a solution which turns out to be graphics related. If you manage multiple systems via AD then you can still use that on a global scale but if its only 1 or 2 computers then this option may be quicker!
As part of the upgrade, we are also moving accounts to a more secure and reliable infrastructure.
The upgrade impacts all Outlook, Hotmail, Live, or MSN email accounts.
Lawyers appreciate that the Outlook 2013 user interface is far more visually-pleasing and user-friendly than most web-based email dashboards.
