Yammer/viva emails freeze outlook for 5-10 seconds

Copper Contributor

Could the team at Microsoft just make the load of yammer/viva emails go to another thread, so I can continue working if I accidentally click an email generated by yammer/viva? Today outlook freezes for at least 5-10 seconds, and it's just not a great experience.

I did have similar experience but on SharePoint Online access, it was related to network access to Microsoft finally, would suggest take a look on this

@Kidd_Ip This is 100% caused by the UI thread being blocked to load websites in my email reading pane, mostly from emails sent by Yammer. Using outlook on the web will show a blank loading animation for the email, but I can still choose to read another email instead of waiting.
