It sounds like your application is retrieving a great deal more data
than is being presented to the user. If this is the case, the answer
may be in restructuring the application to given the database engine a
large part of the court. A trivial example is a counting records. If
you application count them, a million records is a million messages
whether compressed or not compressed, blocked, or no blocked. If you
let the engine do, it's one record. If there's aggregation to do done,
let the engine do it.
