Summary

FM10 Send Mail with Lion NOT WORKING

Product

FileMaker Pro

Version

10.0v3

Operating system version

10.7

Description of the issue

I have tried to test every option to correct this problem, but my FM10 database has been successfully emailing with Apple's OS X Mail application for years, but after upgrading to Lion, it fails:

Send Mail [Send via E-mail Client; To: "Me@me.com"; Subject: "Hello world"; Message: "Hello again"]

Gives error #3 = Command is unavailable (for example, wrong operating system, wrong mode, etc.)

The Mail app comes to the foreground, but there is no new window or draft email.  If I quit and re-run Mail, then all of the attempted emails appear as both open windows and drafts.

I have confirmed that Mail 5.0 is set as my default email program in Mail.app preferences.

Anybody else having this problem?  This is a deal-breaker for anyone considering upgrade to Lion with FM10.  Any suggestions welcome!

Thanks,

Joe
