Reproducing the Issue

    Is there a character limitation?


There is no character limitation, but the size of the whole e-mail itself should not exceed 20MB as this is the Max E-mail Size that our SMTP can deliver.

Meaning, if e-mail content (including e-mail header, body) exceeds 20MB, e-mail delivery is rejected.
