Description of problem:
when you have images, attachments in your email, it takes ages to render the
email. it also creates a high cpu usage and hungs application for a while
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
always, if message has two or more attachments
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create a message with 160 business cards
2. Send it
3. Go to Sent folder
4. Click on that message...
application is not responding for around 10 minutes, creating high cpu usage
if rendering a message takes that long, allow to click anywhere else and that
should break rendering process - if I have that big message in my outbox, I can
accidentally open it when I don't want, but it causes me to wait 10 minutes to
have my application back on track.
Computer is Core 2 Duo T7500 intel with Nvidia graphics card, I guess it's quite
fast platform to have an email rendered quickly ;)

Can you please attach such a message that causes the performance issue?
Sure, with 160 contacts directly to the internet? I am sure, my collogues,
friends and family would be happy when they find it out that I've posted their
contacts on the internet :)
I will create fake business cards and check if that message cause a problem, if
yes, I will attach it.
I'm also seeing this problem with evolution 2.12.3

Seems to be a fairly common problem.
