I have a script to send e-mail - it works - almost! It brings up the e-mail screen with appropriate attachment, but when I click the send button the screen returns to FMP (10), but no mail gets sent.- what should I try next?
Sounds like the problem is with your email client. Can you send emails normally using this email client?
How do you know the mail doesn't get sent? Because it doesn't get received on the other end? Or it never shows in the sent mailbox? Any errors?
Is there a space between the @ symbol and the g in gmail.com?
I suspect you are correct about the e-mail client . Email client FM selects is outlook. I don’t normally use it but FM chooses it as default. I’m looking into whether it works outside of FM or not. Can you change the e-mail client FM chooses to Gmail for example?
I don’t get e- mail sent to either of the two e-mail addresses I use, and others don’t get emailI try to send.

No, that’s not the problem. If Zi copy the email address from the client and use it in gmail it works fine.
I went into outlook and reset it. It seems to be working with FM now. Thanks to everyone who replied, and Ill keep my fingers crossed as I develop a script with a loop to send out individual reports.
Well, now the script gives me an unknown error and doesn't open the e-mail client (or at least it never shows on the screen). Thought maybe it was fixed but NO
Make sure your Outlook and FileMaker both are either 32 bit or 64 bit. If one is 32 and the other is 64 they don't play nice
Thanks - I think I have finally got it. I reinstalled outlook and it seems
to be working now - the only problem is that I get a warning that another
program is trying to send an e-mail. I have checked all the security
programs I have but I can't make the warning go away.
That's what I was referring to in the earlier posts. MS Outlook just cannot do fully automated mailings but SMTP can if you choose to use that method and your IT department will allow it.
