A READER ASKS
I stumbled across your blog looking for some answers to what might be a simple question concerning FileMaker 9. I’m trying to send an e-mail to 100+ parents, but as of right now, the only way I can do this is by sending one e-mail to myself and then putting all their addresses in the BCC line. I’m pulling their addresses from fields in a found set. But is there a way to send each recipient its own e-mail to avoid the possible spam hits?
I’ve looked into some of the available plugins for FileMaker, but I’d really like to be able to use Outlook to send the e-mails.
It sounds like you are so close to the setup for this. You will want to make sure you have the “Create:” set to “One email using data from the current record” and then click the check box below the “BCC:” labeled “For each message, collect addresses across the found set.”
