Is it possible to email a pdf document to a filemmaker container?
Not directly, first of all because FileMaker has no built-in means to receive an email. There are plug-ins that enable FM to receive emails by providing bi-directional communication with SMTP servers. If you are a programmer, you could probably write your own solution (php, micro-service, web integration with an email SaaS product, and/or other means somewhat over my head). I have several clients using two-way FM email that I implemented for them using a commercially available plug-in.
Beyond that, are you asking about storing a PDF attached to an email, or converting the body of an email into a PDF and then storing that?
