I gleaned this one from the “Windows Weekly with Paul Thurrott” podcast……  Apparently there was an update released for MS Outlook 2007 to fix a problem with calendar items marked private, but the bonus is that it improves performance of Outlook significantly.

Update for Outlook 2007 (KB933493)

I applied the patch and did notice an improvement. Would I call it significant; not really.  But, I am also currently running Office 2007 on an AMD Sempron 2600 box.  Nothing is running all that great on this system anyway. This is the same system on which I had to put blackhole entries for two servers at Microsoft so that my system wasn’t constantly utilizing resources to “phone home”.  By the way, those hosts are as follows:

127.0.0.1              config.officebeta.microsoft.com 

127.0.0.1              microsoftofficesystem.org

Something about the use of the word BETA in the FQDN freaks me out. I’d be interested to know if anyone else is having this problem.

Check it out if you are running Outlook 2007 and let me know if you are finding better results than I am.
