Fixed in version Marketing Cloud Release August 2019

Summary
Emails with a URL attachment that's accessed by a call to the AttachFile() AMPscript function may fail to send if the length of the URL exceeds 1024 characters.

Repro
1. Populate a data extension containing a field for the attachment URL with records whose URL length exceeds 1024 characters.
2. Create an email and include a call to the AttachFile() AMPscript function to look up the field in the data extension containing the URL of the attachment.
3. Perform the send and confirm the email does not get delivered.

Workaround
If possible, ensure the URL is less than 1024 characters.
