Title

Importing Email to FileMaker

Post

     Is FileMaker capable of interacting with an email client, such as Microsoft Outlook? I don't know all of the details of the project, but I am looking into a database that compiles data about job applicants and hopefully imports any emails from those applicants into the database. Ideally, I would like to extract information from the emails such as the subject and the text, but even just importing the email as a file into a container would be useful.

     Is this possible with regular FileMaker Pro? If not, is it possible using custom functions in FileMaker Pro Advanced? Otherwise, is it possible that creating a plug-in could accomplish this?

     Thanks in advance for any advice.
