Hi,

Has anyone had any problems with inconsistency of email sends, using the Send Mail Script Step.

I've built a simple feature that sends a text file to about 3 people (including the sender as confirmation).

It sends the file most times, but some times it won't.

Initially, I discovered that if there was any unqualified email adress in the list of recipients(ie without the @ & .com etc), then the email would not send at all.

But, now that I've eliminated that, I still have occasions where it doesn;t send.

Any ideas?

Yep, sorry - should have clarified.

Firstly, if there is an unqualified email address anywhere in the list of emails to send to (eg john instead of [email protected]) then the email won't make it to the outbox at all.

But, the main problem is with the inconsistency of the send of one of the reports - which went once, but not the second time - whilst both appear in teh Sent Items folder - ISP prob?

Okay, well all you need to know is that filemaker only passes the e-mail to outlook / your default mail client (apprently FM has simple email validation that checks against domain names before exporting the e-mail you should be happy about this, it saves you from getting undeliverable e-mails back, though i suggest you do your own validation).

Anything that happens afterwards is based on your default settings in your default mail client.
