Does anyone know a way to change the default send mail program that FileMaker uses with the Send Mail perform with dialog script? Currently, on my windows 7 machine, FileMaker sends the email with Microsoft Outlook. If I did NOT want to send via SMTP is it possible to make FileMaker use gmail instead of Outlook so that I could see the email generated and tweak it before sending it. Microsoft Outlook does not seem to play friendly with gmail IMAP and my emails from FileMaker are getting stuck in the Outbox. I know that it is possible to change the internet mailto links to generate the email in gmail instead of Outlook but I can't seem to figure out how to do that at the desktop level.


I can get chrome to intercept the mailto links and generate in gmail but haven't figured out how to make it work with FileMaker.


Thank you,
