    When using OE, it suddenly slows right down, almost to a stop and my machine
    starts "clicking". It goes back to normal when the clicking stops. At first
    I thought it was my power surge protector kicking in but I disconnected
    that. there are no lights flashing on the machine when it happens and the
    internet connection (ADSL through a router) is maintained.
    OE is XP, AMD Ath 2000, 160G HDD, 512 RAM.
    Anyone any ideas?

    Don't use Inbox or Sent Items to archive messages. Move them to local
    folders created for this purpose.

    Disable Background Compacting and frequently perform a manual compact of all
    OE folders while "working offline". More at
    http://insideoe.tomsterdam.com/files/maintain.htm.

    Your anti-virus application's email scanning feature can also cause such
    corruption. Disable it. It provides no additional protection.
