ASPmail error "Paragraph is too large"

I am using ASPmail (SMTPsvg.Mailer component).  On one particularly long email (42383 characters) I get the rror "Paragraph is too large" when trying to send it.

I can't find any reference to this in the docs (http://www.serverobjects.com/comp/Aspmail4.htm). The component otherwise works flawlessly, both for the current client, and for all my other clients.

Anyone know what is the cause (is there an unpublish limit to the length of a mail message)?

Thank you.

I'm dealing with code that has been in place at this website for about 9 months without any problem. It has also been used for almost 2 years in a similar format at many of my other clients, also without this error.  IN fact, I found almost no references to this error online (the one reference in Experts Exchange was not helpful).

But if you'd still like to see the code, some of it includes the following:

Thanks.

Set Mailer  = Server.CreateObject("SMTPsvg.Mailer")
Mailer.RemoteHost = "localhost"
Mailer.FromName   = gv_strFromName
Mailer.FromAddress= gv_strFromEmail
mailer.clearbodytext
mailer.ClearRecipients
Mailer.RemoteHost = "localhost"
Mailer.Subject    = strSubject
Mailer.ContentType = "text/html"
Mailer.AddRecipient RS("FirstName")& " " & RS("LastName"), RS("email")
Mailer.BodyText = "<HTML><BODY>"& strFullText(iLetter) & "</BODY></HTML>"
if lSendMail then
      if Mailer.SendMail then
            SendLetters =  "Mail sent..."
      else
            SendLetters = "Mail send failure. Error was " & Mailer.Response
      end if
      response.write " (" & SendLetters & ")<BR>"
end if

Mailer.AddRecipient RS("FirstName")& " " & RS("LastName"), RS("email")

to
Mailer.AddRecipient RS("email")

removing the name makes the program fail:

Microsoft VBScript runtime error '800a01c2'
Wrong number of arguments or invalid property assignment: 'AddRecipient'

Thanks anyway.

gawai: Thank you for the suggestion, but that page only has tips on how to skip over the line that is causing the error. I need to actually determine what the error means (it is not found in the documentation) and then correct the situation which causes the error.

The mailer routine actually has a loop and can potentially send mail to 3 people, including me (the webmaster). I enabled that part of the loop, but I received the same error message.

Any ideas how to contact tech support for the component? They don't seem to have any references to it on their website http://www.serverobjects.com/

WEBuilder,

I had this same issue and I think it was caused by an illegal character.  Make sure in the text that there isn't any ' or ".  

Here is a link to my question a while back...http://www.experts-exchange.com/Web/Web_Languages/ASP/Q_21033166.html

The answer was apparently some type of illegal character.  I am still not sure what it was, or why I received this answer.  But I went through the document once again and tried to remove any remaining illegal characters, and now it sends without an error.

Thanks.
