How much memory does your system have?
Are you using Microsoft Word as your e-mail editor?
Check your Task Manager (Start -> Run -> taskmgr.exe; on the Processes tab, sort by Mem Usage and note the largest entries)

Outlook is using 50MB of my RAM and Word which is used as my email editor uses another 40MB, so this is a bit of a resource hog.

Do me a favor and run Task Manager (Start -> Run -> taskmgr.exe) and copy down the 10 largest (based on mem usage) processes that are running.

For example in my Task Manager:
IEXPLORE.EXE 60,044K
OUTLOOK.EXE 47,788K
WINWORD.EXE 34,500K

List your top 10 with the amount of memory being used. That will give me a better idea to work with to figure out what needs to be done to get your computer to respond faster.
