Can you: Have a database act as an email client
I wasn't able to find an easy answer to this in the FMP help menu or doing web searches so I thought I'd toss the question on here. I'd like to have FileMaker Pro 11 Advanced receive email from multiple email accounts (an email "queue" if you'd like) so that I can then associate the emails with other elements in the database (case notes, etc). Is this something that is built into FMP or would I need to do scripting to accomplish it?
Thanks for your thoughts.
Out of the box, FileMaker can send email, but cannot receive it. There are email plug ins, so you may find that one of them provide this functionality. If you haven't already, you can google search "Email" and FileMaker PlugIn to see what's out there.
