Email in Filemaker
Is there a way to make filemaker load outlook and put the email adress into the outlook TO: field from your filemaker email field. Then save what you wrote in the email back to a field in filemaker??
The send mail script step ( not using SMTP ) will load your default email client. Therefore, if you have Outlook as your default, it will launch it.
As for saving what you wrote back into FileMaker, this may be a littler more tough.
You can bcc an email address or yourself. Then you can use some kind of IMAP or POP3 plugin to bring it back in.
Another option may be an export of the email.
You may also want to take a look at this product. I have never used it but it may help you...
I may be missing the point, but if you create your email message text in Filemaker, then use Outlook to send it, the email address to whom the email is being sent and the message text is already in Filemaker. Unless you plan to edit it in Outlook, which would be an extra and unnecessary step, you're done. I would rather write my message in Filemaker using any applicable calculations to begin the message such as "Dear " & YourFile:CustomerFullName & ",¶¶" and so forth.
Hi What does ¶ this mean in scripting?
