Is it possible to send an email without "user interaction" with Outlook
Fully automated in other words
"Send Mail" Options: Send via SMTP
"Send Mail" Options: Send via Email Client, Perform without dialog
You can use FileMaker's built in function "Send Via SMTP" or I use a plug-in called "Mailit" and it works very well.
You can use Google API to send email from the gmail itself (if you have a gmail account for sure)
Do you happen to know the settings for gmail?
I'm using smtp.gmail.com
user authentication - plain password - username and password
Try changing that to port 465, SSL encryption.
Be sure to leave the reply-to address blank as FileMaker creates malformed headers when you use it that can trigger spam filters.
Can any see my problem here? Just won't work?????
I believe on gmail you have to use the full user name. firstname.lastname@example.org
For what it's worth, I send emails from FileMaker via Outlook on a regular basis, but for every email I send I get a dialog from Outlook saying another application is trying to send an email via outlook, do I want to permit or deny that. I'll have to try sending it via SMTP in the future....
Try port 587
And recheck your password
You have to go to gmail online and change the advanced settings to allow external applications to send email. I've been using outlook.com lately and I haven't had to do this for years but off & on in the past you had to do this.
