Server SMTP with gmail

Recommended Posts

LS,

I am trying to enter a gmail account data for the smtp-data in FMServer. It is however failing on me. I was able to configure the account in my email program with these settings, so what gives ?

Any takers ?

I know when connecting to Gmail servers with our email plugin you have to go into the Gmail account settings under Security and click the option to "allow less secure apps". Google considers any app that does not use OAUTH 2 to be "less secure" so this may be what is causing your problem.

This has already been done. The FMserver test mail complains about wrong smtp settings. I have, however, just copy/pasted from a working connection from my mail.

I suspect some other fowl play, but can't figure out what

I just tested with my gmail account and was able to send the email. The settings I used were: Server address: smtp.gmail.com , port: 465 , SMTP Authentication: Plain Text , check the option for using SSL, do not check option for TLS and of course user name and password.  Are you using these same settings?

When specifying SMTP values in your FileMaker what are you specifying for : Connection encryption (TLS/SSL?) and Authentication (Plain Password?)

Hi all,

It seems that the entered smtp settings are working ; it is just the test-smtp button that seems to be failing.

Thanks for all your efforts !

      I'm seeing a "FileMaker Script Engine process has terminated abnormally" error when I attempt to register modules on Filemaker Cloud 1.17 using Scriptmaster 5.1 Unfortunately, the database stops responding when it encounters this error, forcing me to close the database. I noticed a similar issue on the forum related to Filemaker Server 17 that was fixed in 5.1. Could there still be an issue for Filemaker Cloud 1.17?
      EDIT: 5.09 works, as mentioned in my post below. I suggest that people use Scriptmaster 5.09 on Filemaker Cloud until this is fixed.
      EDIT 2: There is potential to corrupt data if we attempt to close the database when it is not responding after attempting to register a module with Scriptmaster 5.1. It takes a while before Filemaker will close the database, and it warned me of possible corruption when I re-opened it and attempted to register another module. In testing, I wasn't able to replicate the issue after I sent a disconnect request for the Client thread running the module registration step and turned off Script Engine plugins until I saw the thread had been disconnected. I was able to install 5.09 afterward and confirm that scriptmaster was working once installed.

      Hi All,
      I have been using Filemaker since ver3 but only for my own use, at work and at home, but only for my needs. Currently I've created a couple apps that I would like to share with my coworkers when they are out in the field so I bought a little server and am trying to download filemaker server 16 onto it. I bought it specifically with windows 7 pro because I had read that was a good os for it but after trying to install and it not working, I see now I should have purchased windows server. 
      Can I get some help as to what I actually need. I would like to run my apps through web browser or fmp go and I would like to not spend a lot. I would appreciate any advice.
      Thank you. Also, please note that although I'm not completely new to fmp or computers, I am not strong at anything beyond a personal use level, so if you would, please  keep your assistance to vocabulary that will make sense to me.

      This has long been an issue, I have no idea why it happens and it is making life quite difficult
      Win Server 2012 FMS 16 (current but this happens on other configurations)
      With ScriptMaster installed 
      run a script which resets the server ( SMReset) and then loads jars and functions return to you the result of SMGetRegisteredModules and show it in a dialog box
      run another script on the server which just returns to you the result of SMGetRegisteredModules and show it in a dialog box
       
      dialog 1 SHOWS the modules you installed
      dialog 2 is EMPTY
      fmsadmin restart fmse
      do the above again, same result
       
      this means you can not do a test on the server to see if a particular function is loaded before you want to use it.... in fact there is no test you can do to see if the ScriptMaster has fallen over as far as I can tell.
       
      Any solutions???

      Hi Guys,
      I've been using CloudMail for a couple of years now to send marketing campaigns for my company. Just recently I have moved to remote hosting with AWS and now my server is offsite I have noticed some performance issues with cloudmail and a few other areas of my solution.
      To address these issues I have started using server-side scripts to perform labour intensive tasks such as creating bulk records (20,000) at one time. This has resulted in excellent performance once again.
      The problem I can't seem to fix is sending my email campaigns using server-side scripts. I have confirmed the plugin is installed etc on the server and with quite a bit of trial and error, I am still unable to send the campaigns.
      Does anyone have a sample script they use, or any advise how I can get this working?
      I appreciate any help and thanks in advance
      Regards,
      Jason
