Custom message length in build email notification

I'm trying to include custom HTML in my build notification email. I currently have the raw HTML stored in an environmental variable $env:CHANGELOG. My understanding is that the only way to access this environmental variable in the email template is via a ps: 'Add-AppveyorMessage "$env:CHANGELOG"' (

This works but the HTML is cut off partway through. Is there a length limit to the message added via Add-AppveyorMessage? If so, is there a workaround or other way to include my HTML in its entirety in my build notification email?
