Disable RSS Feeds In Microsoft Outlook 2007
Microsoft Outlook installs with a group of RSS feeds - if you are not making use of Microsoft Outlook to read RSS feeds, it's best to take them off from Microsoft Outlook so that no resources are spent in organization of these feeds with the web. To perform this task, the user is advised to go to 'Tools', and 'Account Settings', 'RSS Feeds'. Select all the RSS feeds and ultimately hit the 'Remove' button.
Disable Microsoft Outlook Add-Ins
If it stays unused, the users are recommended to remove or disable Microsoft Outlook Add-Ins. For that, go to 'Tools', 'Trust Center' and click the 'Add-ins' tab. You can easily find the 'Go' button at the bottom of the dialog screen. Click that button and uncheck (disable or even remove) the Microsoft Outlook add-ins (for example GoogleDesktop, iTunes Add-in, Acrobat PDF Maker, Mindjet Mindmanager, and much more) that you no longer utilize.
Remove any items that you do no longer need, like e-mails with really large attachments. You can remove those attachments without deleting the original message or archive the older items to a different Microsoft Outlook data file. Then click 'Data File Management' on the 'File' Menu. Select the data file that you intend to compact, and ultimately click 'Compact Now' in the 'Settings' command.
