Hi there...

 

Was recently annoyed, again, about Filemakers lack of HTML support in emails. Thought I would have to go to a 3rd party plug in that we always use to get the job done.

 

But it occured to me there is a better way. I created a Powershell script which can be parsed parameters( To:, Subject:, Body, etc etc) , from a send event in filemaker.

 

This will open up Outlook ( the email client we use) and create a new email...and hey presto, we have an email with whatever HTML has been parsed from the script, in the email ready to send!

 

It's actually better than the filemaker send email script step as it doesnt "lock" you out of filemaker until you send the email either!.

 

Good stuff! Free HTML emails for Filemaker :-D
