if you declare the variable as varchar(max), it shall work correctly.

The @body parameter for sp_senddb_mail is NVARCHAR(MAX), so there shouldn't be a limitation in the mail sending part itself - which would suggest the problem lies elsewhere.

Can you post the code you are using to generate the body of your message, and send it?

I agree, it has to work, unless somewhere in the "middle" you use varchar/nvarchar without the MAX specification ...

Can you expand on what your problem was in the end?

If it was related to a variable somewhere then I think a point split may have been more appropriate option for closing the question.

I had a intermediate store procedure which launched sp_send_dbmail.
I deleted it and use directly sp_send_dbmail with the correct nvarchar(max)
Thank you
