The email intent works when the body message (the Intent.EXTRA_TEXT) is small, but for 5 KB of text it silently fails, with no exceptions and nothing in logcat.
It looks like the email is converted into a mailto link, so perhaps the resulting massive mailto link exceeds some arbitrary limit somewhere. It works fine on real Android.

Thank you for your feedback. What device/simulator were you testing this on? Was it on BlackBerry PlayBook or BlackBerry 10?

There might be a 5k limit for email intents on BlackBerry PlayBook. If you try passing under 5k, does the intent work? For BlackBerry 10, this shouldn't be a problem.

Yes if I try a smaller body it works fine. I haven't done a search to find the exact point it stops working, but I know it doesn't work for just over 5k.
I can work around it on the PlayBook.

I ran into the same issue, but took some time to narrow it down a bit further. On the Playbook I am able to pass in 900 characters of text, but 1000 characters fails.
This page suggests that it won't work at all on BB10.
Can we get a definitive answer on what is/is not supported please? Also, is there a way to work around this?
