    Winmail Slow after 1607 update


    After installing the anniversary update and copying over the Winmail folder, winmail fired right up, but seems to be slow in creating, replying or forwarding messages. I have tried to open up Calendar as I remember that working before but it has been little or no help. Any thoughts on what might be causing problems creating messages?

    Hello BridgeHead,

    Did you fresh install or update? ...not that it matters though, but if you did Everything Correctly, since I or no one else has any problems with it, then it has to be something else going on within your own installation that is affecting it.
    It's nearly impossible for us to know what you may have done inadvertently to affect it, and so there's no sense of me making a lot of guesses with what little information you have provided.
    I know one thing for sure though, if starting from a fresh install, meaning, where you have nothing else accidentally done interfering, it will work!

    Let us know what it was when you find the culprit.

    Have a good day.
