    Attaching a different pdf to each email

    Hello I have inherited a database in Filemaker 12 on Windows, but I am completely new to databases. I have a script which generates and saves a pdf for each person using fields from their record. This works well. I then have a second script which is meant to email each of these pdfs to the corresponding person. I have included screen shots of the script and the "send mail" options. When I tested it by putting only my own email address in the To: box, it sent me hundreds of emails each with a different name in the text, and the correct corresponding pdf attached, as expected. Very embarrassingly, when I tried to send the pdfs out, it sent an email to each person with the right name in the body of the text, but all with the same email attachment (for the first person in the list)! What did I do wrong? Thank you in advance for any advice you can offer.

    Airmail on OSX 10.12.6

    I've been using FMP13 on MacOSX 10.12.6 with Apple Mail to send FMP-generated emails with attached PDFs. I recently switched from Apple Mail to Airmail, and it is now impossible to send emails from FMP. Does anyone know if Airmail can send mail with attachments on Sierra MacOS 10.12.6, if I upgrade to FMP16? That's the only reason I might really need to upgrade, and since upgrading to FMP16 will also require a few new computers to run the new OS that the new FMP demands, I'd rather not spend all that money now if I can avoid it. Thanks.
  4. When updating any 360works-plug-in it is deactivated after any update. Sometimes it does not even is replaced. I have created batch-scripts to shut off FileMaker and then remove any 360works-plug-in. After that my user(s) have to restart the application again and the new version of (any) 360works plug-in is installed correctly and activated automatically. I also use other plug-ins by Troi, Dacons en Goya simultaniously and these work perfectly fine and also will be updated and activated when a newer version is being installed. Only the 360works-plug-ins fail to update everytime. I use the script-step "Install plug-in file" so nothing exotic is done there. The problems occur on windows 7, 8, 8.1, 10, 2008 and 2012. On the 32 and 64 bits versions (2012 - 64-bit only) Any suggestions or anyone else has the same trouble?
  5. Hello Am trying to clean up the email field on a filemaker database. At the moment there are many records that contain more than one email address or an email address and text. what I want to do is delete everything in the field apart from the first email address In the vast majority of cases the required email address is the first thing in the field. So my thinking is that the script would have to read along until it found an "@" symbol and then truncate the text at the next space comma or backward or forward slash as they are generally the methods people have used to separate the email addresses. Apart from that am struggling - I would be delighted if someone could give me some pointers on this

    Email Questions

    I am using FMP 11. I have several scripts, I am building a database to track tech issues. The core of the database functions great. However I would like the database to send formated email when certain things are done. IE: If a date is put in a field, a name, or clicking a button. I tried to set this up, using the email client, and I can somewhat do it successfully with my information. But when I try to pull the information from another database (one I created with the persons first name, last name, and email address - plain and simple) it will not pull in the persons email address. I am guessing that I have them related correctly, and or that I am just plain way off base. I am having it pull from a reported by field for the email address - which is connected to the email address database. (Geesh this sounds so complicated). SO I guess what I am asking is how do I have the database send an email - use a pre- created email (one with information pulled from the database - does not have to be fancy) then use the correct email address, when a button is pushed, a name is put in a field, and a date is inputed. Also Is there a way I can create a form for the email? pulling info liek name, dates, times, notes etc? I am creating the database based off of a template from Web Help Desk (which I love Love Love, but my boss more than likely will not allow it due to costs.). Help? Thank you Christina Luis
  7. Goal: find a way to email order confirmations to customers so they can sign and approve the confirmation. My idea was to send an editable pdf with a check mark and spot to write their name. I currently send emails with an attached .pdf (non editable). Customers just respond the the emial, however lately I have had people responding without even realizing there is an attached email. Does anyone know how to send an editable pdf or know of another way to accomplish the bigger goal? Much appreciated -Don

  9. Hi there, we are having some serious trouble with the registration of the plugin in Version 2.12 and 2.14. We are using an enterprise licence for several years know (started with version 1.X, upgraded to version 2 some months ago) and everything worked fine with version 1.X. The Server is running filemaker server advanced 12 with all updates, java version 7.75 installed. 90% of our staff is working via iwp, never had any problems here with the plugin in version 1.X. Today we took a look in our databases and found several errors with registering the plugin. The message looks like this "An error occurred: DEMO mode expired! (16) You can continue to...." We checked the licence-key for version 2 (we got a new key after the upgrade from version 1), everything ok here The plugin is working sporadic so that most of the emails are sent but many are not. We did not change anything in our database for the last several years regarding the plugin or the functions of the plugin. With version 1.X we never had problems like this and it seems that the problem is present since the day we switched to version 2.X. It seems like the plugin forgets it's registration and thinks that it is in demo mode. Example: From three emails one and three are sent, the second one is not. No restart of server, services e.g. between these mails, the plugin seems to be wonly working sporadic. Registration e.g. gets called every time a email has to send so the registration can no be an issue (this was working for several years now, never had a problem with this in version 1.X). We have different solutions/databases which use the plugin and the error is appearing in every one of them. The plugin is absolutely crucial for our business and at this point we are having a hard time dealing with customers and employees because of missing emails. Is somebody having the problem with the problem ? Any clue how to solve this ? Thanks in advance !

    SMTP email with note

    Hi, Â I've set up a few buttons than run scripts to send emails out with pdf invoices attached. All is working fine and as expected but I'd like to include an option to add a personal note to the email. Currently I've got it set up so that you click the button to send the email, the script runs and then a window pops up to ask if you're sure you want to send the email. Â I've got the email message populated with data from the invoice but there are times when I'd like to add a note to my standard message. I'm using gmail and couldn't get Filemaker to open gmail in a browser to send the mail so opted for the SMTP route. The problem is that you never see your email, it all happens in the background. Â What I'd like to be able to achieve is to click my 'Send' button in Filemaker and then for my 'are you sure' pop up to include a box you can input an additional message into the body of the email. Â No idea how to go about it though! Any ideas? Â Thanks, Chris

    Email to multiple addresses?

    In forty minutes of Googling, I've only gotten more confused. I have an script step that is doing a fine job sending an SMTP email to the first address in a list, but I want it to send to all addresses in the list. I have a bunch of related summary fields that get pasted into a field named "email_body." I have a table called Email_addresses that contains a field called email_address.There are four records there; each is a correctly-formatted address. My goal is for email_body to get sent to each of those four addresses (either as four separate emails, or as a message with four addressees, I don't care right now). My SMTP server is working fine. With the options Multiple emails (one for each record in found set) To: Email_addresses::email_address Collect addresses across found set I was expecting four emails, but I'm only getting it delivered to whichever address is at the top of th elist (or maybe is active when the script is run). Advice, or a link to a better tutorial than I've found so far, will be appreciated.

    Email attachment 'Specify' Greyed out

    I searched for hours and found threads such as this one ; The threads explain nicely how to export files to paths and then attach them, but I have a far more simple problem. In my 'Send Mail' Option window, the 'Specify' Attachment is simply greyed out. (See attachment - no pun intended) Thus, I cannot specify a field - I can only choose one file to attach. What have I done wrong? Thanks so much in advance

    Creating an Email List

    I am having trouble sending out automated email reminders. I currently have a script run overnight for a particular database. The goal of the script is to gather email addresses of people who are responsible for items that need work performed to them in the next 2 weeks. So it needs to go to a layout perform a find, a sort and a loop to gather the email addresses into a variable and then exports the list of items due and email it to each employee.. The script goes into the file, performs 2 different finds, one for 7 days and another 14 days and then performs a sort. It then saves records to a pdf. I then do a loop building up a list of email addresses into a variable once done with the loop it will email the list out to each person in one large email.. The issue is that it fails to email out to anyone, only time it works is if I have it email to each person individually with one address in the Send mail per time. So I am curious is there a maximum number of email addresses you can place into the Send Mail? I have only about 10 email addresses that need to be sent per week... Also I have placed the variable into the body of the send mail and I reverified that all the addresses are there.
  16. I read that the new 3.01 version does not require Java. When I run FMPAv16 on my Mac (10.11.6) and use the sample Email database it works just fine and I see nothing related to Java. I had the older v2.12 plugin installed on here and have just updated to v3.01 today. When I run FMPAv16 on a different Mac (10.11.6) and install the v3.01 plugin (never had the plugin installed on this machine before today) and run the sample database a Java App runs without any windows, Just visible in the lower right dock and its single menu is titled "Java" Any ideas as to this oddity?

    Automated email example

    Hi All, I'm fairly new to filemaker and have been developing a database for maintenance parts. I have a re-order amount for items and when the re-order amount is reached, the in stock field is highlighted red. So here is the task; I would like to implement an automated email function where when an items quantity reaches the re-order level an email is automatically sent detailing the product needing re-ordered and it's details (from a product layout). I've been looking for examples but can't find details of a conditional email kind of set up. Can this be done ? And Could anyone give me some pointers/advice on making a start on this ? Thanks in advance for any help/advice Neil

    Send mail with variable PDF

    Hi Forum! I have a script which sends an email to [current record] . Now I want to attach a PDF to the email automatically using the script. So far I have tried with ... filewin:/$driveLetter/$targetDir/$[name_of_unique_field_from_FM] as variable file path. But nothing is attached when I run the script. I hope you can help.
  20. Hello, I have created a task list for our company and I created fields that allow the users to enter a date on which they would like to receive an email reminder for that task (i.e. meeting scheduled, call so and so, etc.) I had everything set in place, and originally used various triggers to set off the script. First, I had a button that needed to be pressed daily (quite annoying). Then I had it set as a script trigger for when the first person opened the database on a given day. That still wasn't working out well. Any ideas or guidance for setting a scheduled script to go off at certain times of the day? Is that possible? I am working in FileMaker Pro 11. Thank you!
  21. Hi there I'm trying to figure out a way to use the Send Email (HTML-formatted) script and preserve the special characters in the message body. As far as I can see, the other ScriptMaster email scripts all include a parameter to set character set as UTF-8... but for some reason the HTML script doesn't. Is there a simple way around this? I do need the emails to be HTML. Curiously, emails sent via this method always have a header which includes "charset=Windows-1252". Not sure where that's set, but I'm guessing if I could find that out, I'd be half way home. Hope someone can help, but apologies in advance, if the solution involves more than a superficial understanding of how the ScriptMaster functions setup works: I've really only got it to work (minus the character set issue) by trial and error. ScriptMaster, mail.jar and Groovy are pretty much black boxes to me, I'm afraid! Cheers Jon
  22. Jeeeez guys, when I started meddling with FM, I had no Idea of the vast possibilities it has... Now, I want more and more every day. Now this is one problem I can't seem to solve so thought you might have some ideas how to do this. This is the situation: FM 11 on OSX 10.6.8. Created a database of invoices for my non profit. As it happens, a lot of people are overdue on their issued invoices. So I got the idea to create an automated script that will when I activate it create a PDF report containing invoices overdue for every person. And then compile a personalized email that attaches the PDF for that person and then sends it to them. Simple, ha? Well, I know how to create a report which has one persons overdue invoices on every page when in Preview. But I can't figure out how to make FM export each page by itself and name each file according to the data that person has. Had I managed this I think I could manage to automate the email part of the script, but I got stuck here... Now, this seems horribly complicated to me, but I guess to someone reading this it could be piece of cake. So please, if you have the time to suggest a solution, I will be eternally grateful.

    Script to trigger generate email

    Hi, I’m looking for a solution to run a script weekly where it will check base on a field (date),The script will also generate report for records that the date is less than 180 days from today date, and will email out the report to the designate email address Can the script run on filemaker pro version standalone or it must be on server version ? Wanted to check can this be done before i going down the road to figure out the solution. Thanks. WJ
  24. Hi I have been asked to set up something that will send out email automaticly when the date in the "review date" field is 14 days prior to the current date, can someone help me with a script that would be able to perfom this task? I have also created and email field that will hold the email address. thank you Kassy
  25. I am using FMPA 13.0v5 with 360Works Email plugin v2.11 on a Mac Pro 10.10.2. Actually, I mostly use the CNS plugin, but since I like some of the other 360Works plugins, I thought I would give this a try. I am running on another machine my Mac Mini Mail Server with SMTP on it, SSL, TLS, and a verified SSL certificate (Comodo). I can connect to this server using port 587 and TLS using both the CNS plugin and FileMaker's Send Mail script step, and both work just fine. When I run it on 360 Email, I keep getting an error saying I have Invalid Addresses that I am trying to send to. To make things simple, I am sending to a single email. Since it didn't like my company email, I tried my gmail one to no avail. I made sure there were no spaces or anything wrong and even ran the IsValidEmail to confirm the email to send was valid. Normally the send email is grouped into one Set Variable script step and I couldn't tell where it was going wrong. So I broke everything down into simple steps: EmailRegister, EmailConnectSMTP, EmailCreate, EmailSetBody, EmailSend and EmailDisconnect. They all return the result of 1 for successful except the EmailSend. It returns a 0 and if I ask the EmailLastError, I get the "An error occurred: Invalid Address: Taylor@TaylorMadeServices.com" (one of several emails I tried). I finally went to the 360Works Email Plugin Examples file and opened it up. I click the connect Advanced connect and turn on StartTLS and put the host name in, my user name and password and press connect. It works. I fill out the "Quick Send" example and press Send and I get the same error that I get when I made my own script. I tried different emails to no avail. I tried the Send HTML email too and it failed also with the same error. I guess I don't have to use this plugin, but wonder what I might be doing wrong since the FileMaker Email script step works and so does the CNS email plugin. The main reason for using the plugin is for HTML support. Any suggestions on what I may be doing wrong or what to try would be appreciated. Thanks. TAYLOR SHARPE Taylor@TaylorMadeServices.com 214-522-5525 EmailRegister("###My License No.###"; "Taylor Made Services") and EmailConnectSMTP( "taylormadeservices.com" ; "###UserName###" ; "###Password###" ; "tls=true" ) and EmailCreate( "taylor@taylormadeservices.com" ; "taylor@taylormadeservices.com" ; "Some Subject Name" ) and // I make sure the from and to are not the same on my tests and that they are valid EmailSetBody( GetAsCSS( $HTML ); "html" ) and EmailSend and EmailDisconnect
