Recommended Posts

Guru D

I'm using FileMaker 9adv. and E-Mail client, Outlook 2003.

 

When I'm a try to send a email that was send basic text format. It's not support for the HTML Content(Like colored text, formatted text)

 

Is there any possibility to send HTML mail by using the above configuration.

 

Thanks for your time to reply..

But I don't know exact one..

 

Much appreciation for your reply.

Try SMTP-it Pro. There's another competing product I've heard of but I keep forgetting the name.

I'm in Pro 9 adv, I think send mail over smtp is not possible in Pro 9.

 

Then how can I achieve this from my side.

No. Not "Send Mail using SMTP Server". The plug-in named "SMTP-it Pro".

 

Please read more carefully.

Thanks AHunter

 

I also referred some Fm Plu-ins like 360 works, and decon products. so possible with the same.

 

But I just want to confirm to send a HTML mail from the Filemaker without using a plug-ins are other tools.

 

Thanks for your time

The answer is NO, YOU CANNOT DO IT, it is not supported by FileMaker. FileMaker does not natively know how to send HTML email. Period. End of story.

 

The ONLY WAY you're going to do it is with a plug-in.

When talking with my friend, he asked me whether it is possible to send the formatted text with bold / italic thru email from filemaker ?

 

Currently we can able to format the text from filemaker using the format toolbar. But I would like to know, whether the same formatting will work in email also ?

 

currently it is showing the text without formatting in emails ?

 

Any support is much appreciated!

No. Not with HTML, not with RTF, not with ANYTHING. One more time: You can't do it. Please stop asking. Only a plugin will let you do it. Nothing else.

Not willing to pay for a copy to peel it apart and see how they're doing it. But yeah if anyone could figure out how to do it, it would be SeedCode.
