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/

What's the main reason for wanting to interact with the email client instead of directly with the service back-end?

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

      I know that peer to peer sharing has been deprecated. I also know that it still works on my network between two computers.
      My client has a two-person shop and has been doing peer to peer for years. He wants to upgrade from an old version of FileMaker to 19 because he is getting new computers. He has been hit hard by events this year so he wants to spend the minimum amount.
      My versions of 19 are part of a volume license, so I don't know if p2p sharing is only working because of that. Would it work with two or three individual licenses of 19?

      In Filemaker 18 and earlier it was a possibility mark this:
      Enlarge the contents of the window for better readability

      Thanks in advance.

      My issue is that my customer layout has a script trigger on LayOutEnter that sorts my customers portal list by "Active" customers,
      but when I do a go to related record from another table say from quotes or any other the customer layout does not load that customer
      or show my related customer because the OnLayoutEnter script trigger changes it, I would like it to go to the related customer and also sort it by "Active"
      on the list.
      Hope someone can help me with this.

      Hoping someone might have the answer to this. I have two new copies of FM19. I installed on 2 machines (Catalina) but like an idiot accidentality used the same licence key on both machines.
      Not a problem I thought, just trash the app on one machine and delete the <home>/Library/Preferences/com.filemaker.client.pro12.plist  then reinstall and enter the second key (as per Claris instructions).
      But no! each time I reinstall it does NOT ask me for the licence key but automatically picks up the originally entered key.
      So I am kind of stuck. Does anyone know what other files need to be removed for a truly clean uninstall because clearly trashing the app and the preference are not what is needed to clear out the licence key?

      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 ?
