Outlook Redemption MAPI_E_TOO_BIG


I would like to use redemption to save attachments (embedded messages) directly to an outlook folder.
When I iterate through the inbox, I encounter the following error after 250 mails (thats the limit by the exchange server):
Error in IMAPISession::OpenEntry: MAPI_E_TOO_BIG

How do I release the objects correctly ?

Please help
Thanks very much
Best regards

' sample code (vb.net 2005) just to test iterating:
oMyRDOSession = New Redemption.RDOSession
oMyRDOInbox = MyRDOSession.GetDefaultFolder(Redemption.rdoDefaultFolders.olFolderInbox)
For i = 1 To oMyRDOInbox.Items.Count
  oMyRDOMail = oMyRDOInbox.Items(i)
  Debug.WriteLine(i & vbTab & oMyRDOMail.Subject)
  oMyRDOMail = Nothing
End If

Got support from the developer of Redemption...

Sulution: Do *not* use multiple dot notation and use Marshal.ReleaseComObjects

That works fine!

'Do NOT use eg. 
x = objRDOMail.Attachments.Count
'but use:
objAttachments = objRDOMail.Attachments
x = objAttachments.Count
