  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. Hi, I'm using 360 works eMail Plugin with FM Pro Advanced 16 and FMS 16 with success. I try to use last version 3.05 with Filemaker Cloud, but I have an issue with the "GetNextMessage".

  4.

  5. I am using EmailRecipients () , and we have noticed that sometimes duplicate emails are being sent. I had one customer who said they received 10! any ideas? My script is: Set Variable [ $result ; Value:EmailConnectSMTP("smtp.gmail.com:465";"info@**********.com";"*********";"ssl=1") ] If [ $result ≠ 1 ] Show Custom Dialog [ Message: EmailLastError & ¶ & "Feedback emails failed! Password most likely wrong. Tell Doc."; Default Button: “OK”, Commit: “Yes” ] Go to Layout [ original layout ] Exit Script [ ] End If #send email to foundset Go to Record/Request/Page [ First ] Loop Set Variable [ $first ; Value:patients::first ] Set Variable [ $email; Value:patients::email ] Set Variable [ $subject; Value:$first & ", Happy Birthday from Colonial Family Eyecare!" ] Set Variable [ $msgCreate ; Value:EmailCreate( "info@************.com";patients::email ;$subject ) and EmailSetBody( $$body) Set Variable [ $setRecipients ; Value:EmailRecipients($email) ] Set Variable [ $sent; Value:EmailSend ] If [ $sent ≠ 1 ] Show Custom Dialog [ Message: EmailLastError; Default Button: “OK”, Commit: “Yes” ; Button 2: “Cancel” , Commit: “No” ] Else End If Go to Record/Request/Page [ Next; Exit after last ] End Loop Set Variable [ $disconnect ; Value:EmailDisconnect ] If [ $disconnect="ERROR" ] Show Custom Dialog [ Message: EmailLastError; Default Button: “OK”, Commit: “Yes” ] Exit Script [ ] End If
  6. Hi, I have just downloaded the 360works Email plugin Sample and I am doing some tests to check whether this would solve my problem. I would like to be able to download all emails from my email account into "messages" table and then on each customer record show those emails which are related to that customer via a portal based on a relationship between, but what I can not figure out how to do it is that the portal would show but types of emails those marked as "from" emails and those marketd as "to" emails. So far I have created a relationship between Customers::email ------- Messages::From and the portal would show all "from" messages. If I would set the relationship as Customers:email ------ Messages:To, the portal shows all "to" messages, but what I am trying to make is a join portal that would show by date both "from" and "to" messages, then I plan to make a Conditional Formating saying that if Customers:email = Messages::From then all text in blue, and all text in green when it is TO. Is this something that can be achieved? Thanks a lot for any tip, Luis
  7. Hi everyone, I have done some research on this but cannot make headway so any help would be much appreciated! I am currently thus: • Using FM 13 pro advanced to create a runtime solution for use on Windows 7 PC • All well apart from when I go to a script to send an attachment by email...

(but it won't be used on a Mac so... Many thanks in advance, FileDumb
  8. 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?

  9. Single email to multiple recipients

    Hi, I've spent a lot of time searching around to try to figure this out - to no avail. I want to be able to send a single email (may be different each time the mailout is done) to multiple recipients that are the result of a find. I've created the script and it works fine EXCEPT I get a separate email window pops up for every recipient, into which I then have to complete the Subject and contents - not what I was hoping for. Even to do it as a an email to a single address (our organisation) and all others gathered as BCC opens up separate windows for each found record. Can someone please help me resolve this? If I can solve it for this list, then I can apply the same principle to the other 4 "finds" I need to be able to do. Using FMP12 Advanced on Mac (so using Mail), though the final product will be on Windows.
  10. Is it possible to get as a return value the HTML code derived from the EmailSetBodyFile function? for example, given the following code, I would like to get the resulting html back. I guess I could extract the html from the file and do the substitutions in using filemaker script steps, however i am wondering if it is possible to do with plugin functions. EmailSetBodyFile( $_body_html_file ; 1 ) and EmailBodySubstitute( $_preamble_replace_string ; $_body_html ) EmailBodySubstitute( $_signature_replace_string ; $_signature_html )
  11. 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
  12. 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?

  15. Does anybody know a way of directly attaching a file to gmail (via the webclient) using mail to or via the send email functions. We have multiple users that move around the building so setting up outlook for each user is becoming a nightmare. They use iPads so the send mail script function works here, but on a desktop we would like it to force open GMail or use Mailto: and take the attachment with it. I've tried everything i know about mailto and i'm at a dead end. I did think about trying to integrate google drive HOWEVER i have no experience with Googles API's.

  20. I'm just now trying the demo of the plugin. I could not Connect IMAP to Gmail: "An error occurred: [ALERT] Please log in via your web browser: https://support.google.com/mail/accounts/answer/78754 (Failure)" It seems that Gmail classifies the plugin as a "less secure app" https://support.google.com/accounts/answer/6010255 because it only works when I "Allow less secure apps: ON" How can we get 360Works Email 2.17 classified as a "more secure app" so that we can buy and install the Enterprise License for our organization?

  22. There is another thread on this topic from September 2015 . Thought I would give the problem/solution its on thread to easily help others. this had me baffled and scratching my head as everything seemed fine in the script.... then Don Bahash wrote: "OMG ... I just got it to work! So, for me, the solution was to remove all the references to field "id_constant" in the SMTP dialog box in script "0783 Send Email by Parameter" So following Don's solution ... I hard coded each of the smtp fields that referenced the prefs table and it solved the problem. I then went back in and undid each change one at a time and tested. I saved the password field for last because I suspected that was the problem child. Bingo..,. it is the culprit... after careful review of the displayed fields on the email tab in Preferences, I realized that the password field was actually the password display field. once I changed that to the password field and entered in the password ... problem solved! 4.5v2 now sends emails via smtp in the Contacts module hope this helps others!

  24. 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.
  25. I am running Windows 10, FMP Advanced 14 with the 360Works Email plugin version 2.14 64-bit installed and registered (I have a license). I am able to connect, successfully build a message, but it won't send. I get this error most of the time (from EmailLastError): "java.lang.NullPointerException" and on a few occasions I got a simple "EOF". I made sure that I am using a valid Port and that I have appended it to the SMTP server name with a colon. I checked and I have the most up to date version of Java running. I'm totally stumped. I used this plug-in with good results in my FMP Adv 13 solutions. Anyone?
