Script Step Send Email via Email Client Freezes FileMaker

Hey All,


I have a script which opens up Outlook with some populated data from FileMaker. I am able to edit the email in Outlook, but if I wanted to navigate back to FileMaker and find different information to add to the email I can't access FileMaker until I close the email/send it. I believe the reason is that the script is in limbo when FileMaker calls that script step until I close/send the Outlook email. Is there a work around where I will be able to launch an email through a script, then be able to move back to FileMaker to add more information manually? I'm not sure why opening up an email ties up FileMaker until you are finished with the email.
