If I put an email address in the To: field of the send mail script step and then send it via Mail.app OS X 10.3.3, The address doubles itself like this <[email protected]>, <[email protected]>.

If I put: Name <[email protected]> in the To: field, I get the following:

>, <[email protected]>

I can't find documentation for this annoying behavior... can anyone else duplicate this?

I remember this when I used it years ago. In the end I just entered the naked e-mail address into the field, no names or extras.

I'm having the same exact problem as Reed where the email address doubles itself. I'm doing the same thing...have a script that loops through the found set and sends a customized message to each recipient. I'm using OS X 10.3.2 and FMP 6.0 v4.

I am having this same problem with the Send Mail script step and the Mail application in Mac OS 10.3.3. The To field is incorrectly formatted even if I just put in an address only. The bug appears to be with Mail though, not Filemaker. If I change my default email client to Entourage the script works.

I have tracked down the issue with Mail, and I have found that if the email address appears in Mail's previous recipients list, then the To: field will be correctly formatted. So if you send mail to each recipient through Mail first, subsequent mailings should work.
