Send Mail Script Step (SMTP) launching mail client

Hello all!

I am scripting a few things for my file and one of them is to send a pdf as an attachment. Pretty routine and I have been working so far with using the mail client with some success. No surprise there as it seems to work very well. But my real issue is when specifying an SMTP server and filling in all the information, the device's mail client opens and tries to send the message. The funny thing is that the message does get sent from within the FileMaker solution just like I have it scripted. As soon as I dismiss the device client and tell it to cancel the sending of the message, I get the email I sent. So the Send Mail Script Step using the SMTP settings is working but for the fact it is opening the device's mail client.

 

So is this a known bug or am I missing something so basic I need to go back to getting started classes?
