Product and version = FileMaker Pro

OS = Windows 7 and 10 (issue is not OS specific)


Description = When sending an email via Outlook 2016 called from a script in FileMaker that uses the Send Mail step, FileMaker will crash a short time after the email is sent.


How to replicate = Send an email via the Send Mail script step using both FileMaker Pro and Microsoft Office 2016 (both versions 16.0.9330.2078 and 16.0.9330.2087 will cause the crash). Wait for up to a few minutes and FileMaker will just suddenly crash.


Workaround = Use the instructions on this page: to revert to an earlier released version of Office 2016.  We have verified that version 16.0.9226.2156 is stable and will not crash FileMaker.  You can find a list of Office versions here:
