Title

Sending Email from FMP 12 Pro via Gmail as a Default Client

Post

     Upon searching several of the words in the title of this post, I found a dozen or so threads regarding this very problem, but they were all at least a year old. Does anybody know if this has been resolved? I am currently utilizing scripts for users to send precanned emails populated with specific user information from other parts of the database, but there are times when my users need to send slightly different emails than what I have already scripted. SMTP works fine except for those semi-frequent custom emails. It'd be great for me to be able to write a script that utilizes the default client with much of that same precanned information. I know this is possible with other email clients, but this doesn't seem to be the case with Gmail.

     We use Google Apps and have installed Google Apps Desktop on all of their Windows 7 workstations. Gmail is set as the system default. 

     Any ideas?
