I was sending a email via a tablet. It was very lengthy. I finished and there was only a part showing before it said truncated. Is this the only part the recipient received or only the part I could see that was sent?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

A lot depends on who is hosting the email. Some sites put limit on the size of emails to prevent spam killing the bandwidth. This usually is only a problem when you are adding attachments. This may be a case where it did send the entire email but due to the limits of the interface application it cannot display everything back as entered.  There are unknown variables like which email service and size of the email content to give a more specific answer.

    The recipient can be received the part which was not truncated by the email system. The cut off part is not shown there. However this depends on email vendor, also that how they support email size/file size. There are several 3rd party tools, that can help in this regard. But it is better to send the whole writings in a file as an attachment that can be easily downloadable.
