Re: slug mail in 2009 HELP !
Is there any specific URL that you notice in the web browser status bar while the pages are loading?
What anti-virus, anti spyware, and firewall programs do you have installed?
Are al of them up to date?
Try disabling them 1 at a time for a few minutes to see if you notice a difference.
The issue could be a problem like your anti virus web shield slowing down the page load times.
