    Are you kidding? I used to come into the Jack in the Box where you worked at Branham and Almaden. I think we both graduated high school in '75. Ok, in 1982 we bought a second hard drive for a Microdata Reality system. Describe the hard drive size and dimensions and state the cost. And for an additional point, who was the Bay Area tech who installed it? Hint, he later worked for Mark Information Systems.

Sending eMail

Postby ladowho » Fri, 03 Dec 2004 07:59:25 GMT

At the site that I am currently at, I have been trying to
programmatically send an email by executing the UNIX mail command from
within a basic program and have been unable to do so. The command
seems to execute o.k., but the message never gets sent.

In the past I have been able to send info as attachments or as text
within the body of an email by executing the mail program .  I have
done this before on universe and d3.

I am currently working AIX 4.3 running universe 10.

I am not a System or Network administrator and was wondering if there
is perhaps an AIX process that needs to be running or something else
that I should check for?

Any advice? 
Thanks for you help.

Happy Holidays

I had a similar problem with a D3/AIX site. The sendmail program appeared to
be working. The program ran and no error messages were returned. Yet the
email was never received at the other end. It turned out to be a router or
firewall issue. The network administrator for the site found and fixed the
problem. It works fine now. Something for you to check.

I believe it was Steve McDaniel who said...

  Can you send mail from the unix shell?

  $ echo "hello" | mail  XXXX@XXXXX.COM 

  How about....

  $ cat<<EOF | /usr/sbin/sendmail -t
    From: unix_user

  If neither of those work then your email system is not configured
  properly and youd need to get your system administrator to configure it
  for you.

Thanks for the responses.  It has been determined that this is a
configuration/firewall issue that i hope can be resolved.

The problem I run into most when sending e-mails via sendmail is not
having the receiving isp in the hosts file.  When the message is
relayed to the smtp processer on the network, the message is rejected
because the source is not recognized.

If you're on a unix system check /usr/adm/sylog/mail.log for the
results of your efforts.  Often googling the error will point you in
the correct direction.

Another tip is to make sure that the smpt processor on recogiznes the
unix box as a "trusted user" so that it will relay your messages.
Take care,

1.Sending Emails Filemaker 8.5

Sending emails with a PDF electronic form attachment using the Email
Module configured in "Business Productivity Kit", a free Filemaker
download.  File size of attachment 7.5 mb.  Filemaker email module
opens my Entourage Mac Office software with email fully formated in
filemaker.  To send takes about 4-5 minutes.

When I send same attachement using Acrobat 7.0 (where form is developed
and made ready for email), it similarly opens entourage and sends in 5

Why the difference?  Has anybody experienced this?


2.Send email script and Mozilla - Update

We have concluded that FileMaker *does* call Mozilla -- but the email client
doesn't open; the browser application opens. And it doesn't know what to do
with a command to send mail, so it does nothing.

Is there anyone out there successfully using the Send Email script command
with Mozilla, and if so, how??


3.Send email from FMP through MS Outlook

FMP 8.02, WIN XP

When we try to send an email from FMP, MS Outlook give us a warning, saying

"A program is automatically try to send an email on your behalf. Do you want
to allow this?"

I assume this is to catch viruses trying to propagate themselves, but it
adds an unnecessary step in our process.

Is there any way to configure Outlook to accept email requests without
question from our FMP file?

4.Send email script SMTPit & Compuserve


Is it possible to create a calculated field that references images stored on 
a web server so they display in an email formatted in html sent by the email 
script in FM.?

Any help, such as showing the syntax for the calculated body containing the 
image to display when the recipient views the email would be great!

Thanks in advance for any help.
