Send Mail using SMTP oddity


FileMaker Pro



Operating system version

OS X Lion

Description of the issue

I am trying to use the Send Mail function to send an Email (surprise! surprise) using an SMTP connection.

Now in the message, I have the following text:

"Hello!¶"& "Here is information"

Running the function, I get an email with that message. However, when I change the text to:

"Hello!¶"& "Here is information " (all I've added is a space after information)

Running the function, I don't get an email. If I remove the space after information, then it works.

Placing the text into a show custom dialog works for both cases.

Steps to reproduce the problem

1. Create a button with the Send Mail with SMTP function (I am using the outgoing mail settings for iCloud).
2. Enter in Email
3. In the message field, paste "Hello!¶"& "Here is information "
4. Save and press the button

Expected result

I would expect to receive an email with the text "Hello!¶"& "Here is information " in the body of the email.

Actual result

I receive no emails. If I change the body to "Hello!¶"& "Here is information" (all I have done is remove the space after the word information, the function works.
