Send email via IWP

I will be using the Filemaker template "email campaign" to send emails to batches of people (no more than 10 at a time) from IWP. All the users are on the same office network but will be accessing this DB via IWP. Reason for that is they all run on FM 7 and this DB uses features they do not have. Problem is I do not want each user to send emails from his/her own email account but for them to be generated (i.e "from") a specific address.

I thougt of doing this via SMTP using the following script I found on a different forum.

Commit Records/Request[]
 Set Error Capture [On]
 Allow User Abort [On]
 If[]
 End If
 Send Mail [Send via SMTP Server; No dialog; To: "any_email_address@email.com";
 message:"Any text here!" & "¶¶" & "field name here: "& database name::field & "¶¶" & "Submitted By: " & Get(AccountName) & "¶¶" &
 Go to Layout [original layout]

would this work? and are there easier ways to do this?

any input on this matter would be greatly appreciated. I would test this but will only be in the office tomorrow and would like to be as prepared as possible.

 

thanks !!
