Announcing Email 2: your total messaging plug-in

360Works is proud to announce the release of Email 2! The Email 2 plug-in takes email in FileMaker to a whole new level, sending and receiving HTML or plain text emails with SMTP, POP, and IMAP right from a FileMaker solution. Email 2 brings these great new features:

  • Send email using Amazon Simple Email Service, a product from Amazon Web Services that gives the flexibility of an in-house solution and the stability of a third party email provider. Just like an AWS account, there's no need for an SMTP server with this option.
  • Send Instant Messages and SMS / text messages using AIM
  • Move messages on IMAP servers, or save copies of outgoing messages with new function EmailMoveCurrentMessage
  • Support for POP3 UID reading & searching: A much more efficient way to get new messages from your POP3 and IMAP mailboxes
  • Support for manually specifying message-id for outgoing messages
  • Customizable progress bar
  • New parameter for EmailReadMessageValue reads the raw format of an email
  • Added EmailReadMessagesFromFile, for pulling messages from an MBOX file or MimeMessage raw file


And so much more!

  • New EmailConnect methods to enable STARTTLS and force trust SSL certificates
  • Automatically zips directories sent as attachments for you
  • Choose to remove deleted messages immediately with IMAP mailboxes
  • Now gives you the capability to specify multiple plain text parts in a single message
  • Improved support for messages containing both inline and non-inline attachments
  • Now supports CRAM-MD5 authentication when connecting to an SMTP server


Ready to use sample code!
