In email insert hyperlink dialog box is slow to populate

    Whenever I try to insert hyperlinks in an email (the hyperlinks are to

    intranet site) I have to wait a full 2 minutes or more for folders options to

    apprear. The dialog box freezes, so I cannot input the hyperlink name

    I found your post while searching for an answer to this problem. I had a

    similar problem inserting hyperlinks in Outlook 2007, although my delay was

    only about 12 seconds. I could not find an answer to this anywhere but

    finally figured it out myself.

    The cause of my problem was 6 shortcuts I had in the My Documents folder.

    These shortcuts were to folders elsewhere on my hard drive. As an experiment,

    I added 6 more shortcuts to My Documents, and nearly doubled the delay time.

    My solution was to create a folder called Shortcuts under My Documents and

    move the shortcuts to that folder. Now my Insert Hyperlink dialog is

    populated almost immediately.

    Thank you SO much. This has been a major annoyance for so long and your

    solution resolved it immediately.
