Mail notification text length limitation (Single Line of text?)

I had (have) the following problem with the notification plugin.

I configured the notification and rules - first just for testing with a short text in an eMail like "notification on {ITEMLINK}".  Everything was fine.
As a next step, I changed the eMail text to something more meaningful. I could store the changes on the notification, but when I tried to close the notification screen by clicking OK, it repeated to show the notification screen.
I played around some time, removing different parts of the mail and finally noticed that the length of the mail caused the problem.

Digging a little deeper, I noticed that in the KSNF Rules List, a field with the title "Email Text" exists, which is of the type "single line of text".
Can this cause the problem?

Shouldn't an eMail be able to be longer than 256 characters?

Thanks for any opinions,
Christof

Christof,

The email text currently is limited to 256 characters because it is, as you pointed out, stored in a single line of text field. As a workaround, if you wish to increase the length, you can modify the rule list email body field to be a multiline text field and specify the max length you wish.
