Back in February 2012, I wrote a post titled "FileMaker, Microsoft Outlook 2011 And Missing Carriage Returns". Since then, I've been updating different scripts that integrate email messages that consist of concatenating multiple FileMaker data fields.

Last week I let out an audible groan when I came across another script that was affected by the Macintosh Outlook users. Only then did is occur to me to create a custom function to make it easier for me and other developers.
