I stumped...

Suddenly the email functions in our database stopped working. We checked and the smtp server is still working. We tried other methods of email that seem to work... only filemaker 5.5 unlimited is having problems sending email. (on a Mac under OSX)

Here is the code from the web page

<FORM ACTION="FMPro" METHOD="POST" NAME="checkoutform">

<DIV ALIGN="left">

<P><INPUT TYPE="hidden" NAME="-db" VALUE="PUB_WebOrder_.fp5"> <INPUT TYPE="hidden" NAME="-format" VALUE="thanks.htm"> <INPUT TYPE="hidden" NAME="-error" VALUE="checkout.htm"> <INPUT TYPE="hidden" NAME="-lay" VALUE="ForWeb"> <INPUT TYPE="hidden" NAME="-token" VALUE="[FMP-currenttoken]"> <INPUT TYPE="hidden" NAME="-recid" VALUE="[FMP-currenttoken]"> <INPUT TYPE="hidden" NAME="OrderID" VALUE="[FMP-currenttoken]"> <INPUT TYPE="hidden" NAME="-script" VALUE="Web_PlaceOrder"> <INPUT TYPE="hidden" NAME="-edit" VALUE="">

<INPUT TYPE="hidden" NAME="-smtphost" VALUE="x1.nrcan.gc.ca"> <INPUT TYPE="hidden" NAME="-mailfrom" VALUE="CFS.Bookstore@nrcan.gc.ca"> <INPUT TYPE="hidden" NAME="-mailto" VALUE="[FMP-field:C_ForWeb_CustomerNumber::Email]"> <INPUT TYPE="hidden" NAME="-mailsub" VALUE="Order No. [FMP-currenttoken]"> <INPUT TYPE="hidden" NAME="-mailformat" VALUE="emailorder.txt"><A HREF="javascript:document.checkoutform.submit()"><IMG SRC="images/continue.gif"</A></P>



Any thoughts? Seems to have only happened since switch to FM 5.5 unlimited

Now I am ticked off...

I just tried the email form in Filemaker 5 (classic mode) and the email worked fine. So filemaker 5.5 under OS x doesn't work with email...

unless there is some bug fix, or syntax change in cdml I need

I am also having problems with email using cdml. Here is the answer which is probably the same for you. If I try to use an email address that has a period in it, it will not work using OSX. ie wayne.wyngaard@wherever.com will not work using FM v5.5 on OSX but will work on v5.02 on OS 9. I believe the problem is with the unix core not liking the extra period. I am calling Filemaker.
