Comm-Unity Networking Systems has released a new version of its FileMaker Pro plug-in SMTPit. SMTPit allows you to send e-mail from within FileMaker. The new version includes new features and bug fixes. According to Comm-Unity:
Comm-Unity Networking Systems announces the release of SMTPit 3.0, for FileMaker Pro 4.x and 5.x for Macintosh OS 9, Macintosh OS X, and Windows Platforms. SMTPit is a very flexible FileMaker Pro 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 4.x or 5.x.
You can easily integrate SMTPit into your existing solutions. A basic knowledge of FileMaker Scripting is needed, however, the documentation for SMTPit covers how to use FileMaker Pro Plug-ins, and more specifically, how to use the SMTPit plug-in.
Possible Uses of SMTPit
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 gives you extensible features like E-mail Headers and Footers, and HTML support, you can have an even greater control over the messages that you can send.
