Very Long Delay to Run OutLook
After Installation of OutLook Express "OE 6_v2.1.1"

The software automatically puts a short cut icon of outlook on your desktop.
That fine but when I click on it to run the application there is a rather long delay until the app actually runs, as little as 5 seconds and up to 30 seconds.
This delay gets rather old after a while.
I found a way to fix it so there is no delay to run the app.
Delete the outlook icon off the desktop.
Put a new one on the desktop.
Go to C:\Program Files (x86)\Outlook Express\right click on "msimn.exe" and select "Send To" then "DeskTop (Create Short Cut)".
Rename Icon
That is an accepted way, thanks for sharing, although you could try reinstalling because that delay from default shortcut is not normal.
You can also try start menu shortcut (All Programs>Outlook Expres)
