    Send Mail error 1506



      Send Mail error 1506


      FileMaker Pro



      Operating system version


      Description of the issue

      Random error 1506 when using the Send Mail via SMTP script step.

      Steps to reproduce the problem

      It's random.  Most of the time the Send Mail works fine, but occasionally it fails with error 1506, even though all the input data is the same.


      What's needed is more specific error reporting for the Send Mail script step.   Ideally if the transcript of the communication between Filemaker and the email server was saved, it would indicate the reason the email was rejected by the server.

          Thank you for your post.

          From FileMaker Pro Help, Error 1506 is "Email(s) could not be sent successfully".  Check the SMTP server error logs to determine why the could not be sent.  If the "input data is the same", what occurs if you try sending it manually?  That is, pull down the File menu, select Send -> Mail... and manually put in the data.  Does this work?  If this works, try creating a new script with the same information as the manually entered data and execute the script.  Does this work?

          Keep me updated with any progress.
