Bulk email bounce backs


Recommended Posts



Has anyone experienced problems associated with bulk emailing from FM using the Send Mail script.


My problem is that when I Send a bulk email - using Outlook express - putting my email address in the BCC address field, if any of them are incorrect it seems to halt all of them from being delivered.


If anyone else has struck this prob or knows a better emailing system compatible with 5.5 please let me know


Thanx in Advance

I use SMTPit by Community networking systems www.cnsplug-ins.com


This allows you to send single or bulk emails, be they plain text or html from within FileMaker without the need for an external email client.


The benefit of this is you can personalise the emails from within FileMaker and each eddress has its own email. It will report if any fail for you (with good scripting that is) and if one fails it wont halt the rest from being sent.


Alternatively, you could use the send mail script step, but loop through the found records, sending one email at a time. This will fill up your sent items in your email package rather quickly if you are sending a lot of emails. You will also want to work in pauses and cache flushing into your script.
