Just a small idea how to improve the performance of opening documents in the Notes-client.
Right now if you open a document which contains attachments, then they are always completly loaded from the server and only after this the document is displayed.  It would be better if attachments were loaded only when the user actually opens them. (and  only the specific attachment) Or they could be loaded in a separate background process which would not delay the opening the document.
- it would save network bandwith
- it would save time opening docs (and specifically mails)

I have now tested it again and counted network traffic and loading times and the described handling is NOT the case. Attachments are loaded correctly only when needed.
Sorry for this post, i had come to this conclusion based on an aplication where the form was responsible for the loading times when large atachments were presend and made a too fast wrong assumption :-(
Thanks Theo for correcting me.
"Idea" withdrawn.  Pease ignore it.

I really doubt that this is the case !!!
Attachments do NOT get loaded when opening a document, only when clicking the links/icons.
