      Multi sms script failing

      Post

      Hi there, Using Mac Filemaker Pro Advanced 13.0v1

      I have script sms text and it find all the records, sends a text to the clients. One of the searches is about 1000 records and after(after about 100 are sent) the script brings up a error "Email(s) could not be send successfully." ????  then we have to manually press Ok    then the error comes back and we have to keep pressing Ok. And eventually have to quit the script.

      Ive got the staff to check the data with the mobile numbers that they are correct, plus we are omitting in the search if the numbers are incomplete.

      The script goes like this:-

      Perform Find

      Constrain Found Set

      Show Custom Dialog

      Go to Record/Request/Page First

      Loop

      Send Mail Send via SMTP server, no dialog

      Go to Record/Request/Page[Next;Exit after last]

      End Loop

      Exit Script

          Many ISP's and email servers have anti-spam limits set on their servers that limit the number of emails that you can send out at one time. This sounds like such a case. You may need to modify your script to only send out 100 or less at a time or use a different email server that supports mass emails.
