When you put ADO recordsets into the body of an e-mail message, the amount of time required to serialize the recordset increases significantly as the size of the recordset increases. For instance, by doubling the size of the recordset, the time required to serialize the recordset may triple, depending on the amount of data that is being serialized.
Memory allocation and expansion is not optimized to allow for efficient memory expansion.
