  1. Ocean West, so with SparkPost... I could still send using insert from URL in FM? I just need to setup an account at SparkPost and use there SMTP server/credentials? Email will still appear to come from my email address?
  2. Thanks Wim, I'm using smtp.gmail.com. I've edited my dns records and added an SPF txt record as well as a DMARC record so I seem to be 'passing' the spam tests I've been doing. Is there another smtp server I can easily send mail from instead of smtp.gmail.com? While still using this insert from url sending method?
  3. I have started sending emails using the INSERT FROM URL method shown by soliant here: https://www.soliantconsulting.com/blog/html-email-filemaker/ Emails are being sent out but many recipients seem to be getting my emails sent to their spam folders. I'm curious if this has anything to do with this method of sending emails.
  4. Thank you so much for the response. Let me explain my ultimate goal. I want to send an email from the server that has a button to download a calendar .ics file. This is an html email I'm sending which is working fine. My initial thought was to use the data:text link above however it seems that mail clients do not like that link format. Any mail/browser client I use doesn't want to open the link even though if you paste it in a browser it works fine. My alternative route was to put a .ics file into a container and add it to the html email I'm sending as an attachment. This would be done on the server. I'd love to be able to use the 1st method as it doesn't require an attachment. But I'm fine with either method.
  5. I'm trying to have FM18 server generate a .ics calendar file from a calculated field. I have a calculated field that has the url formatted: If I were to type that into a browser it will download a .ics calendar file just fine. However if I use 'insert from url' to insert the .ics file into a container. It doesn't seem to work. Can you think of another method for FM18 server to generate a .ics file? I'm hosted on a remote server where plugins really aren't an option.
  6. I've got an archive server that I'd like to get the path of every file in a list. The function 'List All Files Recursively' can do this. The problem is that there are 1.2 million files in the directory. Is there an economical way to get this in a list in filemaker? The function just seams to choke (unless I'm doing something wrong).
  7. Can I use the MBS to print a 2 page US Letter PDF on a piece of 11X17 piece of paper? (Also known as 2 UP) What would be the function to use?
  8. Say I have a 2 page letter pdf in a container. I want to make a 1 page pdf that is 11X17 of this PDF. Do I need a plugin to do this? If so what? Or can I achieve this natively in FM?
  9. I'm looking for a way for FM Go to send messages to a mac. I have a database file on an ipad (local, not networked). I'd like to 'control' a mac on the network in some way by sending commands to the mac. My thought was to use applescript but I understand that FM Go does not support applescript. Any suggestions? OSC, or MIDI? Has anyone tried anything?
  10. Sorry Lee, I don’t understand. This anomoly happens on every file I open in fmpa17. On different layouts within the files as well.
  11. Hi, I have an issue in FMPA 17 where in layout mode and I have issues drawing objects, portals, fields, etc. Intermittently it will not let me put objects on the layouts. Sometimes it works fine, others I have to restart FMPA17 and then it seems to be ok for a while. I also have a problem (see image attached) where a set of cursor coordinates seem to be 'burned' into the FMPA17 app. If I had FMPA17 they go away, I bring FMPA17 back... there it is again. If I quite FMPA17 it will go away for a bit. This doesn't happen in FMPA16. Any ideas?
  12. Is it possible to export a container field's PDF and automatically copy it to another app on ios to edit it? My main goal is to annotate a pdf and bring it back in to FM Go (As FM Go does not support annotating natively).
  13. Thanks ggt667. That owc enclosure was exactly what I was thinking of getting. 4 ssds setup as raid 10. Do you recommend something else or a different config? Also, as far as setup... can I leave fms server installed on the server internal ssd and just move the hosted databases to the raid drive? Is this the correct setup to maximize the raid speed? very interested to see what apfs has to offer in the fall.
  14. I was thinking of getting something like this and putting 4 ssds in it setup as RAID 1+0 (my understanding is that will offer me the most performance.) Does this act as a RAID controller? Also? I just put the database file on that raid drive yes? I don't install fms on the raid. https://www.bhphotovideo.com/bnh/controller/home?A=details&O=&Q=&ap=y&c3api=1876%2C{creative}%2C{keyword}&gclid=CMeB7--QotQCFRB0fgodc1EDnQ&is=REG&sku=1046491
