FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
COMM-UNITY NETWORKING SYSTEMS RELEASES SMTPIT 3.0 beta 1, A CROSS PLATFORM
FILEMAKER PRO PLUG-IN.
Fort Worth, TX, July 23, 2001 — Comm-Unity Networking Systems announces
the release of SMTPit 3.0b1, 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
email directly from FileMaker without the aid of any helper applications.
To use it, all you will need is an email 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.
Jake Traynham, company owner, states that “”””””””We have added many, many new
enhancements to this new version of SMTPit, including Japanese character
support, OS X support, Server Authentication support, a new Status Window,
and many others. We are especially enthusiastic about the Japanese
character support because it opens up a whole new market for us.””””””””
