    Hi all,

    I've run into a symptom and I'd like to find out if others are running into
    this as well, and if there's a fix.

    I have transferred my messages and my address book from Outlook Express 6
    (on my Windows XP desktop) to my new Windows Vista Home Premium system.

    First question: When I first run Windows Mail, it takes about 45 seconds for
    the program to get past the splash screen and to be ready to work. Is this

    Second question: Once Windows Mail is up and running, I then do a Create
    Mail. The first time I do this, it takes about a full minute for the Create
    Mail window to fully open. I notice this is happening only when I've got my
    2000 Windows Contacts address book filled. If I delete all those addresses,
    the Create Mail window opens up within a few seconds. Again, is this normal
    behavior or is there a fix?

    I'd appreciate knowing if others run into this symptom and if anything can
    be done about it. I'm running Windows Mail on a brand new HP laptop that
    came with Vista already installed.

    Thanks for the help!

    I have much the same setup - a dual booting system with legacy XP on one
    drive, and Vista newly installed with imported mail and address book. Just
    timed Mail startup at less than 5 seconds. Create mail is virtually
    instant. My address book is quite slim - maybe you need to tidy it up /
    reinstall yours?
