Microsoft® Outlook® 2010 Freezing Issues
The Microsoft Outlook program that comes with Office 2010 is perhaps the most important advancement made in the release. It has been equipped with some of the most desired features including incorporation of the Ribbon, ability to collapse and combine the conversations and feature that helps in changing the formats of the e-mails. Keeping this in mind, if you have decided to install Office 2010 and you want to use Outlook 2010, you must know that sometimes, your Outlook 2010 may freeze while creating a new message. Let us know why Outlook 2010 freezes and how to fix the issue.
The following points will tell you why Outlook 2010 might freeze and how to solve it:
- The Mail is too Heavy
- Too Many Commands Given
- Too many Programs Running in the Background
The Mail is too Heavy
There are possibilities that Outlook 2010 freezes because the e-mail you are trying to send is too heavy. This means that the e-mail that you are trying to send contains too many attachments or very heavy attachments which Outlook 2010 is finding it difficult to send. In that case, Outlook 2010 may freeze instead of sending you an error report. In such a situation, try to make your attachments a little lighter by changing their format or decreasing their size. If you need to send the attachments as it is, you can use different e-mails to send them, instead of using a single mail to send all of them. This will make the e-mails lighter and you will easily be able to send them, without hanging Outlook.
Too many Commands Given
Microsoft Outlook 2010 may take a few seconds to process your commands. If you are creating a new message and Outlook 2010 has suddenly frozen, may be you have given too many commands at a time. After giving a command, wait for it to process completely and then only give your second command. If you give too many commands at a time, Outlook 2010 might freeze and stop working.
Too Many Programs Running in the Background
Even if your e-mails are not too heavy and you have not given too many commands at a time, Outlook 2010 may freeze sometimes. This is because you are running too many programs in the background and the random access memory is not finding enough space to keep all things working. In such a situation, you should first close all the unnecessary programs running in your computer system and then try to resend the e-mail. Most probably, Outlook 2010 will not freeze this time.
