Hi, Is there a way to detect from Filemaker when an email is sent. For reasons of accountability we want to use the Default os X mail client. I am thinking of using applescript to maybe detect the window name (the window name is the subject name and I can populate that ) and then when it closes. But if the just close the email it wont work.
that will not be reliable; user could also quit Mail; what i think you should
do is query the subject lines of emails in the Sent mailbox; still not
foolproof (users can copy emails into Sent on their own):
Perform AppleScript[ "set target_subject to \"whatever...\"¶ tell application \"Mail\"¶ tell sent mailbox¶ count of messages whose subject is target_subject¶ end tell¶ end tell" ]
if you want something more accountable, bcc to another email account and
confirm that it receives the email with the intended To: address
Ok. We only need accountability so the email is checked before sent out. We don't want to use the FM SMTP. Checking sent folder is good.
