Scripting Filemaker and Apple Mail

Recommended Posts

Hi All

My hardware is an Intel iMac, running Mac OS X 10.4.11

My software is FilemakerPro 8.5v1, and Apple Mail Version 2.1.3 (753.1)

My need is to achieve the following workflow:

Whenever an email arrives in Mail addressed To: a specific address, it should be copied into a specified folder on the Mac, and the contents of the email body should be copied into a named field in a named FMPro database. Another Applescript (aimed at a 3rd program, QuarkXPress) should then be triggered.

I'm a newbie at Applescripting, and would be grateful if anybody could give me the scripts/steps needed to automate this workflow.

Many thanks in anticipation. PHILIP CAPLAN
