  1. thank you for clearing things up for me... do you know if this is anything FM is working on for the future?
  2. ok... could this be done in thunderbird or outlook perhaps? i figure i set up an client that all my fm mails goes through and then lets that client always have a banner on top of every mail. could that be a solution?
  3. hi! Im constructing an automated email function for my FM database. The idea is that it´s going to get the adresses from one field, and the content, subject, names and so on, from another. This will basicly construct the email so that it is ready to send. What i want to do now (as a finishing touch) is just to put an image as an topbar/banner on the mail, just to make it look prettier. It has no other function than estetic. How do i manage this? I´ve experimented with container fields that i upload images to, but it doesn´t work? Any thoughts? Thanks!
  4. Hi again! Im on my way to complete my product database and as a final thought I figured that I wanted to tagg the products, in order to easier index them when I link my database with my webpage.

What i want to do is for the databas
  5. thank you for trying to answer, i will try to expand my question a little. what im trying to do is to set up a similar customer - product database; "customer" corresponds with "contact" and "products" with "organizations". i should have explained that from the get-go sorry... the idea here is that the products will show up with each customer - in that table. i guess a customer could by more than one of the same products so lets build it from there! if that happens i guess the best way to solve it would be to introduce a counter next to the product? i guess this coul

  9. Thank you! That is awesome! The thing i really wanted to know was if it at all was possible, and according to you it is? Could you (or someone else) please provide me with some sample code just to show me what a "Send text message" button would look like? - is it just the regular send email code but to a specific SMS mail? If so, there would be no problems for me to write something like "Hi "$name"! This update... " to be albbe to switch names right?

  12. First off: Marry X-mas to all FM users! But the joy of the season last just as long as work is out... Anyhow, heres my troubles: Im sending emails using name as a variable, such as; "Hi " & $first_name & ", text text text..." What i want is to incorperate a picture on top of the email.
