Does an open solution exist in FileMaker, which can limit the number of emails to send in batches (from a found set of 500)?
Available tutorials, sample files, papers on the subject are welcomed
If you have created a record for each email to be sent, then your batch script would simply find unsent records (records not marked as sent), loop through the first "x" records (where "x" is the number you wish to send) - sending the email and marking as sent (set a boolean "sent" field to 1). Run the script again later to send another batch. You could set this up as a scheduled script in FMS using the interval you want.
Do you have a special situation that would be more complicated than that?
Thank you for the suggestion Jason, unfortunately the process is significantly more complex which is the reason to locate and evaluate previously developed solutions, modules or even tuturials!
I can suggest other approaches but I'd just be throwing darts unless you can you describe your requirements in more detail.
