Hi there,


I’m having a lot of problems with the Send Mail fuction on Windows. I want to show the message window so ‘Perform without Dialog’ in not selected. The first issue is that when the message window is created in Outlook control is not returned to FileMaker untill after this window is closed. So in order to return to FileMaker this window needs to be saved and closed. This is different to the behaviour on Mac OS X with Mail. What is more disturbing is that when closing the message window in Outlook 2013 on Windows 8.1 FileMaker Pro crashes. I’ve testet both FileMaker Advanced 11 and 13 and both crash.


Has anybody found a workaround for these problems ?


Thanks in advance and best regards - Dick Honing
