[11:00 AM] New App Allows E-mail To Be Sent Directly From FileMaker Pro
Comm-Unity Networking Systems released Mac SMTPit 1.0RC1 (Release Candidate 1), for FileMaker Pro. This plug-in allows users to send e-mail directly from the FileMaker Pro environment. According to Comm-Unity:
SMTPit is a very flexible FileMaker plug-in that allows you to send e-mail directly from FileMaker without the aid of any helper applications. To use it, all you will need is an e-mail address, an smtp server, and FileMaker Pro.
SMTPit can easily be integrated into your existing solutions, with little effort. A basic knowledge of FileMaker Scripting is needed, however, the documentation for SMTPit covers how to use FileMaker Plug-ins, and more specifically, how to use the SMTPit plug-in.
Because SMTPit enables you to send e-mail directly from FileMaker, the possibilities are countless. You can use SMTPit to send personalized e-mail newsletters, respond to inquiries from the web, or even integrate it into POS solutions. Because SMTPit now allows you to include e-mail headers with your e-mail messages, you can have an even greater control over the messages that you can send.
Features of SMTPit:
SMTPit supports normal e-mail fields such as To, CC, BCC, From, Subject, and Body.
SMTPit adds support for a special Header/Footer field in the body of the e-mail message.
SMTPit adds the ability to append to all e-mail fields, including the Header/Footer, with the exception of the From field.
SMTPit allows you to include extra e-mail headers with your e-mail messages.
SMTPit is available for US$65. You can find more information, and a full demonstration version, at the Comm-Unity Networking Systems web site.
