[CLOSED] $ causing EDAMAIL fail
Hi All,

I am using EDAMAIL to send a temporary password which contains special characters. The Email is not working when '$' is used as a special character something like below.

EX EDAMAIL,, Temporary password ,,, Your temporary password is 'Test$123' please change at login. For other special characters it works fine.

I know for comparisons we can use SET EQTEST=EXACT but not working in this case.

Any suggestions greatly appreciated!

Is it an option to just store it in a holdfile format doc and send this text as an attachment?
