I have a client that is have Office 2007 and uses Outlook for Email. We have been sending email links from FileMaker with the FMP URL (fmp://myserverip.com/filename.fmp12?script.....) and it works just fine in Apple Mail in that when you see it in the email, you just click on it and the link works. Unfortunately, in Outlook, it does not create a link and they have to manually copy it and paste it into a browser to make it work. Is there an option in Outlook to have it recognize FMP URL links in Emails like it does HTTP URL's? Do newer versions of outlook work with the FMP URL?


I am just doing this with plain text emails. The next option I was avoiding is sending HTML email, but I'll need a plugin for it. Any other suggestions? Thanks.
