Question

If a folder contains a large number of messages it can be very slow in displaying if Internet Explorer Version 6 is being used to access GMS Webmail. What can I do about this?

Answer

Internet Explorer Version 6 has trouble with both string handling and garbage collection. This can seriously affect performance, particularly where a large amount of data is being handled as is the case with GMS Webmail.

An updated JScript engine is available for Internet Explorer v6 which resolves this issue. This can be accessed, along with a full explanation of the issue from the Microsoft web site.

Once this is installed on your machine you should see a vast improvement in performance.
