I would like to:

1) save the current record as a .pdf via the print dialog

2) attach the pdf to an email

3) send the email to an address in the current record.

(Hmm, If I had a big email database, I could do spam. But actually I want to send my students an individualized grade report.)

I think I can do all this, except that I don't use Mail.app for email. I use a school email address and the client is a program called FirstClass.

Can I set up filemaker to email out other than via Mail.app?

Thanks

Can I set up filemaker to email out other than via Mail.app?

The short answer is yes. I have auto-e mails being sent out to notify various people on the organization of job status changes. There are people here using mail.app, outlook and entourage who all generate these notifications. I am not familiar with the mail client you mentioned so I would say that you would need to test it for compatibility. Filemaker will send the e-mail through what ever mail client is specified as the system default client.
