Send mail with PDF Attachment - Some problems in FileMaker Go


FileMaker Go



Operating system version

iOS Latest

Description of the issue

In one of my projects with FMGo 12, i have a script for send report in PDF via eMail that in some case doesn't work properly.
I use SMTP send mail function for sending mails (one record at time) and I export in Get ( DocumentPath ) my *.pdf file (always 1 page for record ie. 004565.pdf). In some cases the mail was sent properly, but the attachment doesn't attach properly so my customer recieve emai without report pdf.

What's wrong in my script? The size of attachment is about 200Kb. I insert also many pauses for delay during saving and sending mail, but the 30% of sent mail are without attacchment.

Thanks in advance, Fabio
