If I hardcode the exact same text into the SMTP tool config in the Body section, it goes through fine.
It seems like the SMTP parser needs to not treat the contents of an incoming text field as part of the parsable script. It is a perfectly normal thing to want to send a failure email e.g. with a documentation link, report URL or similar to the error recipient.
Strangely, if I choose "Subject: Use field ticked : A", it goes through no problem - it just seems to be the body where Alteryx chokes on the URL.
I would still like to report this as a bug - imagine I have a dataflow with some kind of complex text , XML or even an image within it which I want to put into the body of the email - I would need to go through the entire text and parse it, search and replace for anything which Alteryx might not like - the contents of the data field should not cause a component to fail because of characters it can't handle. That does not seem like a feature!
