MMEmail 1.0 Released (Mac and Win)


Fort Worth, TX, May 31, 2005 — Comm-Unity Networking Systems, creators of
SMTPit, announce MMEmail, a dialog based FileMaker Pro email plug-in for Mac
and Win.


MMEmail is a user-friendly send email plug-in for FileMaker Pro 7 and later.
It is different than other email plug-ins in the sense that it does most of
the work for both the end-user and the developer.

MMEmail has a built-in email window which allows the end-user to compose an
email message as if they were using a normal email client. From within the
email window, you can set the To, Subject, and Body, as well as Attach
files. You can use a special Auto-enter Hierarchal Menu of predefined email
addresses to populate the To field. The Subject and Body of your message can
contain Merge Fields to grab information from the current record before
sending the message. Merge Fields can be inserted easily with a Contextual
Menu. You can select Attachments via a file dialog as well as selecting
Container Fields from a menu. When you click the Send button, the email
window can automatically send the message, or store entered values for use
with a non-window email function.

As with our popular SMTPit plug-in, you do not need an additional email
client to send email because MMEmail sends directly to your mail server.
