1 pointif you use the smtp settings, you don't have to use the mail client and can more easily use gmail or another web based email.
1 pointIt depends.... You can't send mail via a client if that client is web based. You can send via a mail app through gmail if you configure the mail app to use gmail. You can't send HTML formatted e-mail (which is really what makes a newsletter). I recommend using Send Mail via Server if using Gmail. I would also recommend *not* sending a newsletter using your regular e-mail account, but choosing a service like MailChimp instead. It's an easy way to get your email account flagged for spam.
1 pointthe "Send Mail/Send via: E-mail Client" script step chooses the standard mail application which is defined by the operating system. filemaker can't define that app. check the abovementioned script step.
