Error expanding macros in property Message

I have a step in my build script that sends an email. The message body of the email comes from a (dynamic) html file. I include it in this way:


Sometimes (I suspect when % signs are being used within the dynamic file) the following error occurs:

Error expanding macros in property Message:

Could it be that the loaded content is being parsed? If yes, how can I prevent this parsing from happening?

Thanks in advance,

Yes, any percent (%) or square bracket ([]) chars in a step field are interpreted as macro/script markers. Use


instead, which will double up these characters in the specified file so they will be treated as literals by VBP.
