Fort Worth, TX, July 23, 2001 -- Comm-Unity Networking Systems announces the release of SMTPit 3.0b1, for FileMaker Pro 4.x and 5.x for Macintosh OS 9, Macintosh OS X, and Windows Platforms.

SMTPit is a very flexible FileMaker Pro plug-in that allows you to send email directly from FileMaker without the aid of any helper applications. To use it, all you will need is an email address, an SMTP server, and FileMaker Pro 4.x or 5.x.

You can easily integrate SMTPit into your existing solutions. A basic knowledge of FileMaker Scripting is needed, however, the documentation for SMTPit covers how to use FileMaker Pro Plug-ins, and more specifically, how to use the SMTPit plug-in.

Jake Traynham, company owner, states that "We have added many, many new enhancements to this new version of SMTPit, including Japanese character support, OS X support, Server Authentication support, a new Status Window, and many others. We are especially enthusiastic about the Japanese character support because it opens up a whole new market for us."

Possible Uses of SMTPit

Because SMTPit enables you to send email directly from FileMaker, the possibilities are countless. You can use SMTPit to send personalized email newsletters, respond to inquiries from the web, or even integrate it into POS solutions. Because SMTPit gives you extensible features like Email Headers and Footers, and HTML support, you can have an even greater control over the messages that you can send.

Features of SMTPit

- SMTPit supports normal email fields such as To, CC, BCC, From, Subject, and Body.

- SMTPit adds support for unique Header and Footer fields in the Plain Text Body and HTML Body of your email messages.

- SMTPit allows you to create HTML Emails complete with inline graphic images.
