You should be able to create a HTML personilized mass email form containing a long URL embedded in a tag. We created a test form here containing the following long link, which merged out correctly:

Regarding your other issue, are you still referring to the Personalized Mass Email applet? Engineering advised me this applet doesn’t actually support the comments field, so instead of truncation, you probably wouldn’t see any data from the comments field at all when you perform the merge. Is that what you are seeing?

Were you placing the URL in the comments field of the address book because they differed for each user, or was this an attempt to work around not being able to insert the URL in the master HTML form?

You might wish to email more information and a copy of your template to support@advansyscorp.com and I’ll take a look.
