Return to FileMaker.com
I am looking to have a field that lets me send e-mail either through FMP or E-mail client and also store copy sent in FMP like in Bento. Storing the actual email would be easier but link to actual E-mail would be ok.
Filemaker can send email through an email client or via SMTP.
Filemaker doesn't keep copies of the actual emails, although you could create fields and scripts to store the data of the email, such as the recipient, sender, subject, body, date/time etc.
If you need something more sophisticated, there are third party plugins for Filemaker that handle email in a more "client-like" fashion.
