Understandably, after installing the CRM 3 laptop Outlook client it takes much more time to load Outlook. When directly connected to my company's network it's bearable, but if we try to use it outside the company (while connected to the VPN) it usually takes much more time to load Outlook, and the overall performance of Outlook is pretty impaired.
My question: is there a way to avoid this "hangs" CRM causes? For example, maybe going Offline when out of office - will it improve Outlook's performence?
Thank you for your advise,

Lots of factors there my friend. In particular I have seen machines go really fast and really slow in the same forest, with out the VPN.
First off , more memory please. By that we mean not just the installed memory but what is free on the machine. As a famous talk on Tuning Windows XP says "take out the usless junk".
Then take a look at resolution to the application server and the SQL server. Is there a great deal of NBT traffic on the network? Is Kerberos working or is it failing and defaulting to NTLM. The authentication provider for the application server is Kerberos or NTLM. Truly before you look at the application as the problem you should look at the entire system. CRM is an "Entire System" type of application and many components are communicating within your forest.
I always do a forensic before a deployment. There are other things you can use like "Fiddler".
