Is there any way to set the "Send Mail" script step so that it allows the user to select an email attachment? I'd like to be able to open up some sort of browse window so that the attached file could be selected at the moment of creating the email.

I have a feeling that there is some way to place a file in a global container field and then reference that as that file to attach, but I can't figure it out.

Thanks

Jake :P

I think you could do something like that in FileMaker 8. You could have the user select a file and bring it into a container field. Then you could export the contents of that field, and -- here's the FM8 part -- define the export path as a variable, e.g. $myPath. You could then specify that same variable as the path for your attachment.

In FM7 you'd have to use AppleScript or Troi File plugin or something like that. You might want to check out a plugin such as SMTPit.
