POP3it Pro 4.0.5 Released for FileMaker


Fort Worth, TX, March 18, 2008 — Comm-Unity Networking Systems releases an
update to POP3it Pro to enhance the functionality of some of the plug-in’s
features as well as fix several bugs. POP3it Pro continues to be the
easiest plug-in for downloading email directly into a FileMaker Pro
database with little to no scripting necessary in its most basic mode.


POP3it Pro allows you to connect to a POP3 Email Server and download email
directly into your FileMaker Pro database. The plug-in also allows you to
import email directly from the mailbox storage files of popular email
clients like Thunderbird, Eudora, and Apple Mail. With the advanced plug-in
architecture of FileMaker Pro 7 and above, POP3it Pro has the freedom to
work with your email databases like never before. It’s entirely possible to
add email downloading capabilities to your databases without writing a
single script.

What’s New

Subject had a Question Mark in it.
– Fixed some bugs dealing with closing files on the Mac platform.
– Fixed a bug in SaveAttachment where it wasn’t saving Attachments in the
correct place in certain circumstances.
– Completely rewrote/reworked the Attachment/Referenced Inline
