Is it possible to send an email attachment which contains more than 50000 characters

    Hi All,

    We are on V12.1. We would like to send a job report (contains more than 50,0000 characters) as an email attachment whenever job fails for any reason. The email is being sent but it is truncating the report and just showing up 50,000 characters. Is there a way that we could send the full report by not limiting it to 50,000 char. 

    The value of SMTP_MAX_ATTACHMENT_SIZE in UC_CLIENT_SETTINGS is set to its max value(50k).

    Appreciate if we have any other ideas to send the entire job report log as a mail attachment.

    Thanks,
    Srujan.

    Hi

    I can offer a big amount of silly ideas :-)

    you can use OS functions to send an email via OS.
    Your Servers must be configured to send mails (Your OS Server + SMTP Server)


    Powershell example here:

    mailx version here:

    Haha, yes it can be done using OS functions but just wondering why it is just limited to 50,000? Any specific reason or any plans to alter this limit in upcoming releases?

    Thanks,
    Srujan.

    My guess would be its a Database limit or DB field type limit but honestly I do not know.

    The right address would be support or ideas.automic.com - first for the question why, second for the suggestion increasing the limit.

    cheers, Wolfgang
