Sending emails from database & where to get training for Filemaker
I'm using filemaker to send emails to our Conservation Trust Members that have supplied email addesses. The newsletter I'm attaching is a 1.8mb PDF file. I set it up, but it takes a long time for the emails to go. I tried a couple and it took 4 minutes each for the emails to go. This means it would take hours to send emails to all our members. Is there an easier way or do I just need a faster internet connection?
Also, I'm self trained using Filemaker. I'm using Filemaker Pro Advanced and would like to know, at some point, how to make stand alone programs. I've taken a beginners training course from a company in Framingham, MA, but they didn't teach me anything that I didn't already know. Does anyone have a suggestion as to where I can get training.
