Automate Outlook Emails with Filemaker

Hello All -


I have Filemaker 15 and want to know if there is a way to integrate Filemaker functionality with Outlook 2010 (PC).


The scenario is as follows:


I have built a simple contact database in filemaker. I want this database to be able to send out individual text emails (via outlook 2010) to various found records.


The database contains the recipient's name (first and last) as well as their email address.


I need for these emails to be sent via my local box (as a normal one-off email would be sent) without having to host the database on a server.


Is there a way that Filemaker can do this natively or will I need to but a plug-in or something so that both programs can talk to each other?


Very much looking forward to an easy solution to this and appreciate anyone's guidance.
