Microsoft outlook stuck on updating inbox
A user who had been using Office 2007 until 3 days ago is trying to acces his Outlook 2010 after the upgrade that I did (before he was working under Windows XP with Outlook 2007 and now he is working under Windows 7 Ultimate and Office 2010).
While it is updating, no new email lands in the inbox until i restart outlook, then any new items will be updated, but no more will arrive until outlook is again restarted. Other users on the same server have similar and larger mailboxes.
For example, the first time you try to Dismiss All on a list of reminders, Outlook asks you if you're sure you want to do that.
If you don't choose an option on that dialog box, Outlook won't let you do anything else. Pressing Alt Tab will help you switch from window to window and help you see what dialog boxes might be stopping Outlook from responding.
Give Outlook a few minutes to finish the process and it should start to work again.
If Outlook isn't working on a large or long process, move on to the next step. We recommend setting Windows Update to automatically download and install recommended updates.
