When you open the email, especially from outside your corporate domain (mostly HTML format), the mail will takes a very long time to be opened.
It will happened when you install Lotus Notes 8.5 Standard / Eclipse Edition & Internet Explorer 8. If you have process monitor installed, you can view that notes2.exe will check all sites (Restricted Sites) are in Internet Explorer 8 internet settings. After that notes2.exe do query open in file “C:\Program Files\IBM\Lotus\Notes\framework\rcp\eclipse\plugins\org\eclipse\osgi\framework\internal\protocol\about\Handler.class” but the result is not found repeatly (may be hundred times according the restricted sites amount). Then the email will be opened after 1-2 minutes query.
<< Backup your registry before delete some keys >>
You have to delete all Restricted Sites list from Internet Explorer settings in Tools – Internet Options – Security – Restricted Sites – Sites. Or you can remove the list manually from registry in HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\ZoneMap\Domains & \EscDomains & \Ranges. Also remove in HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\ZoneMap.
Another good solution is…
File – Preferences – Basic Notes Client Configuration – Cek “Disable embedded browser for MIME mail”. thank’s Carlos for this great solution.
Is it bugs or not?

I also found this. Then I found the post on removing IE8 as solution and then I found your even better solution. Thanks!
Hope IBM will repair this bug, while people begin to use Internet Explorer 8
The proposed solution is not always appropriate. For instance I use Restricted Sites to block hundreds of sites known to generate adware, malware, etc.
An alternate solution is to change Notes’ embedded browser behavior:
Change the setting of the following User Preference: “Disable embedded browser for MIME mail” to “Checked”
Same problem here. Thanks for this post. Confirm the solution works like a charm.
@carlos : thank’s carlos that good solution. it works, doesn’t have to delete “Block Sites” in IE
I did the disable embedded browser, but it’s still slow and I have no restricted sites in IE. Thoughts?
Try to catch the problem using Process Monitor. I hope it can help…
Internet Explorer 8 is more stable than IE 7 that is why i like it. I always experience freezing browser window in IE 7.
Internet Explorer 8 is as stable as Opera and Firefox. it does not crash a lot like IE7.
i am pretty much satisfied about the features and stability of Internet Explorer 8. it is much better than IE6 or IE7.
Internet Explorer 8 seems to be the best browser for me. I can open more than 20 windows simultaneously without crashing. IE7 and IE6 is unstable that if you open more than windows at a time it just freezes or causes the blue screen.
Internet Explorer 8 is so much better than the previous version of internet explorer browser. it is more stable and loads faster
i love Internet Explorer 8 because it is so much stable that the previous versions of IE. IE7 sometimes freezes and causes blue screens on my PC –
Internet Explorer 8 is very good because it is as stable as Opera. I hate the previous versions of IE like IE6 because it hangs frequently. “
