Getting MailItem body hangs code


John Bailo

I have some Outlook interop code that reads through email in a folder
and reads the body text.

This code runs fine on my workstation, which is an XP machine, 1G/RAM, 2Ghz.

However, when I tried to migrate it to a server, it hangs on the piece
of code that takes the .Body property and tries to pass it to a String:

mailBody = mymailItem.Body;

This machine is a w2k machine, 1G/RAM, 1Ghz.

I'm wondering if there's some sort of latency problem where
communication with the Exchange server is just too slow for the code to
read in the text.

Is there anything I can do? Is there a timeout parameter or something
I can set that would allow this code to run on the slower machine?
