Our add-in scans the contents of a MailItem.Body, however, when a large email (say ~7mb) is being scanned, Outlook will hang while waiting for the scan to complete.
When debugging, I can see that merely accessing the Body property takes a long time to complete, which makes sense.
What I'm trying to understand is if there's a better way of doing this without affecting Outlook.

Hello Nir,

I would look into using Redemption or Extended MAPI to retrieve the body on a background thread.
