After Update, email preview just spins

Updated to 8.1.979 last night, this morning any email I open just has the black/orange spinning bar (i’m in dark mode). If I reply/forward the message I can read it, but otherwise it just spins trying to display the content. I’ve rebooted and closed and opened the program. Not sure what else to try.

Can you completely disable your anti-virus/firewall or VPN and see if there is any difference?

All I have is Windows Defender and Windows firewall. I am not connected to a VPN.

Ok, so, I closed Em Client, disabled the Windows Defender Real-time protection and re-opened and its working. Turned Windows Defender back on and its still working. Time will tell, thanks!
