    send mail help needed



      send mail help needed


      Hi, I'm trying to use the "send mail" option under the "file" menu. I would like to format the text of the "message". I've read somewhere that the way to do that is by using html. I'm wondering if anyone knows where I can get more information on how to do this. Do I just write the html in "message" box? I tried this didn't work. I've also tried using the text formatting functions under "specify calculation". I've talked to Filemaker support and they didn't have a solution.


      Any help would be greatly appreciated.

          Unfortunately, the native Send Mail command in FileMaker Pro does not allow HTML formatted email. But it would be a great feature request ;)


          To do HTML email, you would need to use one of the many email plug-ins available.

               Thanks for the information. That's helpful. I'll check out that route. Do you know, though, if there isany way to format (i.e. bold, italic etc.) text in the 'message' box of the 'send mail' dialog box without a plug in. Thanks in advance!
