I wonder if i can use filemaker pro or filemaker server 13 to zip a file and send it as email attachment ?
Hope more people can see this .
You can send plain text email with a PDF attachment or use a plugin. Scriptmaster has file compression and email capability.
File Manipulator Plug-in for FileMaker Pro
360Works ScriptMaster: Free FileMaker Modular Plugin
Functions · nickorr/BaseElements-Plugin Wiki · GitHub but i dont think it does zip.
other options are to write custom web code (php/java etc) or use a scripting language like vbscript or windows batch language.
Out of the box FM wont make a zip file but has the send mail script step.
BaseElements plugin does have zip functions.
