    Sorry for late reply.

    1- The email signature image has to be served on a server. It can not be stored in a container field.

    2- To support multiple attachments, we are using BaseElments Plugin. This plugin uses true system path and not FileMaker path to attach files. The $PATH variable you used is a FileMaker path and will not work with BaseElements. You have two options to generate a true system path, either using custom functions which are provided with a sample file from to generate true system paths or generate it using native FileMaker functions.

    If you decide to generate the path using FileMaker native functions, please read below page to understand its basics:

Hi there,

I think you file is a great job and help.
Unfortunately i am not able to make it run.
My email provider uses the port 587 with TLS encryption.
Any idea ?

    Hi Philou,

    Sorry for late reply. It was a long weekend here and I was away 😉

    Try using 465 instead of 587. It seems that using 587 would return an error (I believe error number 35). It Could be certificates error (file formats, paths, permissions), passwords, and others.

Thanks for sharing this great job. It was amazing. I could make it work locally without problems, but when I tried to use it trough PSOS, occurs an number 6 error.
I test it with Mac and Windows Server (FM Server 16).
It happened to you? Any idea?.
Thanks again

    Hi Arie,

    I never had that issue on servers which I tested this file on. It is a bit difficult to debug with minimum information you provided. As a shoot in a dark, I would suggest you to run a test on a FileMaker server that uses IP address instead of domain name. If that did not help, you would debug the script using BE error functions.

    Good luck!
