Have you ever received a notification that an update is available, only to find that the message is truncated? Truncation occurs when emails are too long and the mail server cuts off the ends. This means that the email sent back was too long, and the server returned it instead of sending all the parts. In this article, we'll discuss what a truncated message is, how to retrieve it, and how to avoid it in the future. A truncated message is one that contains more characters than can be displayed in the message field.
When this happens, you'll receive an approximate copy of the email you should have received. In numerical analysis and scientific computation, the error of truncation is the error made when an infinite sum is approximated by a finite sum. When sending an email to a user, most of the time a Yahoo user, and Yahoo returns a bounce to your Gmail account, that bounce is usually truncated. The reason for this is because the server (in this case Yahoo's) doesn't see the point of returning the entire message in a reply message.
To retrieve a truncated message, you can use your new get() method and handle it accordingly. If you want to avoid truncation in the future, there are a few steps you can take. First, make sure that your emails are not too long. If they are, try breaking them up into smaller chunks or using shorter words.
Additionally, if you're sending emails to Yahoo users, try using a different mail server or email client. Finally, if you're using MQ to send emails, make sure to include size information with each message.
