Outlook 2007 RTM using 12000 + handles !?

We’ve been having some issues with Outlook 2007 slowing down to a complete crawl on several of our [development] machines. All are running XP Pro fully patched up and are connected to Exchange 2003.

On my PC I find that quite often the new e-mail window can’t keep up with the rate I’m typing, often I get a whole sentence ahead of it before I see anything on the screen.

We’ve all noticed that Outlook 2007 seems to be a bit of a hangle-hog using anywhere between 9,000 and 14,000 handles with no particular pattern to it. You’ll notice my PC runs the MS CRM plugin, however we see similar behaviour on machines not running with that plugin installed.

Any ideas greatly appreciated!
