E mailing with Outlook (ex Hotmail)

October 16, 2013 at 07:25:58
Specs: Windows XP, Pentium 4 256 RAM
I have recently noticed that clicking the pointer on a command (opening e mails, deletes, etc.) gets a slower and slower response. This morning the creation of 'New' was not possible. This afternoon I created on by clicking on 'New' but clearly all is not well.

Has anyone who uses Outlook (ex Hotmail) got any ideas please? I have used Virgin Digital Help to check the PC desktop is as best possible, but the e mailing via Outlook remains as bad as before.

Hotmail before it became Outlook was so much better, smoother and user friendly, i have a daily struggle with the new Outlook as well, extrememly sluggish, i often end up clicking on new/reply more than once because i think that my first attempt didnt register, then it all goes wrong, using the back button, refresh etc, im not very patiant so work myself up, but i hotmail has become very unusable, in my experience definately, and i cannot attribute it to a faulty pc i have a extremely quick machine, very fast internet, it is definately the software.

Outlook Express - outdated pop email program.

Outlook - pop email program (part of MS Office).

Outlook.com - Web based (latest).

I often wonder why MS insist on using the word Outlook again and again which can only cause confusion. They seem to lack imagination.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

AlwaysWillingToLearn: I agree.
Hotmail was so good compared to Outlook. I have several issues with the successor, Outlook, and my question was re the latest and most serious bugbear. I have persevered but might look elsewhere.

DellManchuS - thank you for the link but the info. shown is all a bit beyond me. I have never heard of Office 365.

Derek - I agree! Just think of all the words that could have been used for this new e mail.

I have posed my question to the MS Forum. No real help there, although I have received nice, polite repllies with suggestion of making sure I have deleted Browsing History in case a temp. file is corrupted.
For me, the whole thing is a getting more of a bore than it was at its beginning.
