Single email to multiple recipients

Recommended Posts

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.

I'd like to bump this as I'd REALLY like an answer. My only other solution is do do a sorted report that exports to Excel, then my staff can select all the email addresses and do a mass mail from these. However, that's an added step and clunky. There's surely a more elegant solution via Filemaker.

Did you check "Perform without dialog" in the script editor?

I tried a number of things, but eventually just did it as a Find that exports to excel, and the girls just pick up all the email addresses from that and mass email

      I have a pretty simple document generation and management solution to which I would like to add an email capability.  I would like to be able to have my email attachments dealt with FileMaker so as to be given a unique name and allow me to save them to my HD all in Macintosh.
      Any body interested in taking on this task for me?
      I will buy whichever plugin will do the best job or suits the successful consultant.

      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.

      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.

      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". This command doesn't work. I can see Mailboxes, number of messages and so on, but reading message is impossible.
      Someboby has a solution ?
       
      Thank's !
