Hi there, I am fairly new to Filemaker and the Email Plugin, My question is when should I start the connection to the SMTP server. I have to send a two file attachment email to several clients one file is a pdf and the other a xml, I send this emails once a week, so should I call a script with the open connection and then start the emailing process for each client and then close it at the end of a loop or should I open and close the connection with each email sent?

Thanks for your response

It shouldn't make too much of a difference if you open and close it with each record, unless your server has a re-connection limit in place. To avoid this sort of problem I would recommend:

Connect

Loop

  Create

  Attach

  Send

  Next Record

End Loop

Disconnect
