Send Mail Error in all x64 versions from FM16 to FM19

Recommended Posts

I get the below error every time I call the send mail call. It locks me and the only way out is to kill Filemaker client. I get this error for years now since FM 16 on all the x64 versions. Switch To..., Retry, and X do not work as it keeps looping.

Up to now I was able to get around it because I was using the x32 version where the error does not happen.

Now I am moving to FM 19 as the FM 16 version has an EOL Oct-2020.

The FM 19 version comes only on x64 and I have no way avoiding it anymore. I thought that this will be fixed by now but apparently is not.

I'm assuming yo use Outlook?  Did you also upgrade Outlook to its 64-bit version?

For future-proofing your solution: consider integrating with your email service's APIs instead of going through the email client or relying on SMTP.

Some of the reasons are explained here: https://www.soliantconsulting.com/blog/microsoft-graph-api-filemaker-one/

Wim, my mistake. The outlook on the WIN10 is 32bit.

My temporary solution is I will use Server 19 with Client 18. Client 18 has a 32 and a 64 bit version.

Thanks again for you help. You are very nice. You solved me the DB files Open issue which now allows me to use Server 19.

You can switch to MBS FileMaker Plug-in for sending emails.



If you like to send via Outlook, please check our new WinSendMail functions in our plugin. They can send via Outlook, Thunderbird or other MAPI clients, independent of 32/64bit issues and with a few more options. see Send emails via Outlook

      Hey Everyone
      We are having this issue with the change of any of this variables
      IOS 13
      FileMaker 18
      FileMaker Server 18
      FileMaker Go 18
      We have a Layout for FileMaker go to upload photos from an iPod Touch or iPhone Pro 11, and when we use a script to take the photo directly from the camera works perfectly, but when we use the another one that has to open the library from the device it will happen either of this 2 things
      1. It will duplicate on the mini preview the last "good" picture and when try to maximize the picture nothing shows up
      2. It will happen this weird "no signal tv" ( that's how I call this lol ) image and there's no way to see the picture
      On MacOS the pictures looks great, also con iOS , it seems that windows it's not detecting as a valid file when the photo is taken from the library of the iPhone or the iPod Touch (this never happen in older versions of filemaker or iOS)
      Any ideas ?

      Gents, I have an excel price list with header fields. I want to import it into a newly created FM database. Is it possible to make FM use those header fields instead of me manually creating corresponding fields in FM?

      The short video linked below shows a radio button value list that shouldn't work because the 2nd field is an unstored calculation however it does some of the time and others not. I've been noticing this for some considerable time and I'd love to get to the bottom of why. Any thoughts will be greatly appreciated. https://www.screencast.com/t/7CWCfpqfeP

      I am finding that my new install of FM19 is very slow.  when I go into manage database I have to wait for the fields to populate for about 30 seconds.  Is anyone else getting this slow behavior?
