you mentioned a web link, so I mentioned change default browser and test. outlook may be attempting to contact the URL and IE or whatever your browser is may be causing the issue.

What is the build of Outlook client? I would suggest updating it to the latest build as in past there were fixes that corrected issues with image access/download in emails.
Here are the fixes: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/officeupdates/outlook-updates-msi
 I would also suggest running the Microsoft SARA tool to diagnose perf issues in the client.
The tool can be run from here: https://diagnostics.outlook.com/

You can also run a fiddler trace during such a hang and review what URLs are being downloaded and the responses.

If you save that email file and then open it in MS Word does the issue occur?
