FileMaker with El Capitan does not send MAIL automatically

Product and version FileMaker Pro 14.x.x - FileMaker Pro 15

OS and version : MacOS El Capitan   (and Mail.app as the email client)

Hardware : mac minis 2010-2012  , MacBook Air 2010-2015 and many more

Description :

We have a solution with Filemaker 14 and 15 that have been working for 3 years (since FM v12) sending more than 20.000 mails using the SEND MAIL with attachment script step, after upgrading to el capitan this feature does not upload the file as an attachment.

 

How to replicate :

In a script :

          Set Variable [$path; Value:Get(TemporaryPath) &"pedidos.dbf"]

          Export Records [No dialog; "$path"; ASCII (DOS)]

     Send Mail [Send via E-mail Client; To: "$correo1"; CC: "$correo2"; Subject: ""[mp] Pedido:"&$lpedido"; "$path"]

          >>>>   WITH DIALOG OPTION OFF  <<<<<<

 

Workaround :

     Turn ON the [ WITH DIALOG OPTION ___ ] and tell the user to press the send button in the mail application
