Outlook & FMP lock down while typing e-mail--work-arounds?

Question asked by annr on May 9, 2017

I have a few buttons which pop up e-mail messages using the Send Via E-mail Client action to Outlook. FileMaker opens the message fine, but it keeps a connection to the draft, locking me out from opening other messages in Outlook or changing tabs or records in the database (other apps aren't affected). I can get around it by closing the message to Drafts, which releases the connection and lets me work normally after I re-open from Drafts.

 

It's not a big issue, but is a persistent irritation, so figured I'd ask in case someone has a fix. FMP 15 / Outlook 2016 32bit.

 

Thanks!
