Every time I highlight one apparently authentic email in my inbox the cursor turns to the hourglass. Task Manager shows Inbox - Microsoft Outlook as Not Responding (all twice). Hitting End Task once frees things up, though there are some other wierd things happening in MS Outlook, e.g. temparay loss of addressee and subject, mostly manageable.

Welcome to Geeks to Go.

Do you have Preview or Reading Pane on? If so, turn it off before selecting the problem email.

Does this solve the problem?

If not, please provide this information:

1. What version of Outlook are your running, including service packs (in any Office application, click Help, Aout...). Have you installed all critical updates?

2. Confirm your operating system, including service packs (right click over My Computer, this info should be listed there on the General tab). Have you installed all critical updates?

Big thanks LindaGail.
Turning off Preview enabled me to highlight and delete this email.
(Then the same thing happened when highlighting in the Deleted Items prior to deleting. But trouble free highlighting worked okay when using Ctrl A.)
So, problem solved though Outlook still seems a bit glitchy.
I'll get back if I need to.
