We have been a Netware shop since 1991. We have just recently migrated away from everything which required the Netware client.
We have been on Kerio for a few years now. 99% of our machines no longer have the Netware client. A few admin PCs did including mine. My machine was ok with Outlook and POP3. When we switched to KOC and later KOFF and Outlook 2007, things got very very slow to the point my entire PC was slow when Outlook/KOFF was open.
For example, opening a program from START/PROGRAMS could take 30-90 seconds. Opening a shortcut too. So I've been on Thunderbird for some time. Removing KOFF/KOC and using POP3 or IMAP makes it quicker, but I sometimes need the KOFF search abilities.
Yesterday I migrated from Zenworks 6.5 (which requires Console one which requires the Netware client) to Zenworks 10 which is web based. I removed Zenworks, the Netware client, and install Zen 10.
Now, without the Netware client, Outlook 2007/KOFF is much more responsive (though not as fast as Thunderbird.) My entire computer is not slow like before. I do have the patches removed as suggested by the forum sticky.
Anyway, there were others who have posted with similar issues. If you are running the Netware client, it might just be that. I have been on the Netware client 4.6 from 1997 to 4.91 SP4 w/many post hostfixes and with Netware as the last provider in the binding order. So a test might be to uninstall the Netware client to see if things are quicker. Perhaps one of the many settings in the NWClient need adjusted?
