There are 2 ways of getting out of this dependency of “Send Mail”.Those are,
1)Using a SMTP connection with the use of external plug-In’s(like mail-it etc).
2)Using the HTTP mailto: command. For this there is no dependency on any external plug-In’s.
It is obvious that the second option fits into our needs well than the first one.
HTTP mailto: Command.
Any browser(Internet Explorer,Mozilla Fire Fox etc.) with an active Internet connection.
1)Comes as an integral inbuilt part of Filemaker capability.
2)No SMTP connection required hence eliminating the usage of external plug-ins.
How to use:
In scriptmaker there is a script step “Open URL”.In this script step set the URL to something like this…..
and this works cordially with any mail client.
Note: Placing the above command in the browser also achieves the desired result.
