A free module to extend FileMaker's native email functions.

FileMaker’s Send Mail script step allows you to send plain text emails through SMTP or the user’s mail client. You need to look beyond native functionalities if you’d like to use HTML formatting or send multiple attachments. HTML-formatted emails in particular can provide some fantastic polish to your solutions.

There are some great email plug-ins out there, but this solution is available without requiring other commercial software. This module handles the following scenarios:

  • HTML-formatted content
  • multiple attachments
  • SMTP authenticate over SSL
  • multiple To, Cc: and/or Bcc: recipients
  • custom From and Reply-To headers
  • server-side compatible

requirements

  • FileMaker 14 or better, Client or Server
  • bBox plug-in (Free)
  • Mac OS only, SSL/TLS connections may require High Sierra

If your FileMaker Server is running on macOS, then you can install the plug-in there and send emails via Perform Script on Server. This option does not yet support attachments, however.

installation

Just find a place to store the plug-in file in your solution, import the module scripts, and customize the Configuration and Settings scripts.
