    Sending Emails through my client



      Sending Emails through my client


      FileMaker Pro


      FM13 Pro

      Operating system version


      Description of the issue

      I have certain scripts that are set to send an automatic email, like a receipt after charging.  Right now it is opening Outlook but I would like it to send through my business account with Gmail.  How can I change that FM opens my Gmail client?

               Thank you for your post.

               FileMaker Pro uses the OS default email client.

               To change the default mail application on Windows 7, Click Start and open Default Programs.  Click on Set your default programs.  Select the program you want to use as the default email application.  Click OK.

          Relaunch FileMaker Pro to read the new setting.  Now, when you Send Mail, it will launch your selected email application.

               Let me know if you need additional clarification.
