I have a feeling FM does not recognise Eudora as an e-mail client. Unless you have a particular reason not to, I would use Googlemail and send the email using the SMTP option.
If you look up Send Mail in FileMaker help, you'll see a list of compatible email clients. If you are a Mac user with FileMaker 11, you'd need to add Ms Outlook to the list of compatible clients, but the list is accurrate for windows users as far as I know...
Eudora is supported according the Help, just search for Eudora and you will see.
Eudora is prpoerly installed because other applications can find it
So both replies above don't help me.
Sorry, I had incorrectly recalled that Eudora was compatible only for Mac systems. Reviewing Help shows that you are correct. Eudoral should work for you on a Windows System.
What happens when you select send mail from the File Menu? can you send an email to yourself?
Do you get any error messages when you try this?
If you can send the email manually through this method, then we need to look at your script. If you can't send the email manually, we need to investigate your email set up.
Using the send mail function from the Files Menu doesn't work either. No error message, just a 'ping' sound. So it looks like the match FM and Eudora is not correct.
So you would expect that Eudora isn't properly installed. However the send email function from MS Access works fine, and that also requires a properly installed Eudora!
I am still puzzled
I thought I had the same problem when I used Eudora, that's what my (maybe bad) memory was, it was not from reading the Help. Problems like this are why I always just use googlemail's smtp server.
I don't like using gmail, hotmail, live email, etc. I just want to use my own isp account for sending and receiving email
Any particular reason?
that is not relevant for the problem....
I found that when running FM as administrator this problem doesn't occur.
I don't like users to run FM as administrator, so still looking for a solution.
The strange thing is that sending email from an MS Access application is no problem for a user, no running as adminstrator is necessary.
Anybody an idea how to sol;ve this?
