Microsoft Outlook 2007 update for performance (KB933493)

By Mauricio Freitas, in , posted: 16-Apr-2007 10:52

Last week Microsoft released a 8.4MB update fixing performance problems found in Microsoft Outlook 2007. I've already installed the update on my Windows Vista 64 bit laptop and used it for a few days before posting the link here.


This update fixes a problem in which a calendar item that is marked as private is opened if it is found by using the Search Desktop feature.

The update also fixes performance issues that occur when you work with items in a large .pst file or .ost file.


The Knowledge Base article 933493 has more details. Make sure you read it because there are some problems when running Outlook with the Business Contact Manager.

It seems the performance issues affect large .pst and .ost files only... I have a rather large .ost (Exchange account) file, but I don't use the integrated RSS feed feature, so I guess performance improvements would be more easily perceived for users with this feature turned on.

Worth updating though, it looks like my copy of Outlook is quicker to start now. But could be just my perception (a placebo effect?) since it wasn't that slow before anyway.
