AutoSender 2.5.5 now available

Tuesday, March 17th, 2009

We just released a maintenance update to AutoSender.

AutoSender is still the easiest way to automatically send e-mail from your FileMaker solutions, with integrated support for multi-part messages with both HTML and plain text alternatives, and the possibility to include enclosures from a local network path, or an FTP or HTTP path.

What's new in 2.5.5:

  • [Windows only] Fixed a problem introduced in 2.5.4 where AutoSender would not send enclosures from a container field
  • [Mac OS X only] Fixed a versioning problem

    Download the latest version here.

  • myFMbutler products and FileMaker 10 compatibility

    Friday, January 9th, 2009

    We wanted to give everyone an update on the compatibility status of our products with FileMaker 10:

    Initial testing of our plug-ins (DoSQL, DoScript, PrinterSwitch), have not shown any compatibility issues with the FileMaker 10 platform.

    AutoSender 2.5 also seems to work fine with FileMaker Server 10, although we'll be providing a small update that will integrate a new JDBC driver by February.

    Clip Manager 3 does have some issues for people trying to 'Get' or 'Set' a custom function with FileMaker Pro 10 Advanced. We will be releasing version 3.1 later this month. This version will also provide a number of other fixes.

    We also recently found issues (unrelated to FM10) when using the 'Copy to Clip Manager' function on Brian Dunning's CF web site. Starting with a certain build of Flash 9 and all builds of Flash 10, the copying no longer works. We are currently working on a fix and hope to provide it by next week (actually, we already fixed it today).

    AutoSender 2.5.3 now available

    Tuesday, November 25th, 2008

  • Integrate SMS text messaging with AutoSender in 10 easy steps

    Thursday, September 18th, 2008

    The following example will show you how to integrate text messaging using a service by Clickatell - there are quite a number of companies that offer e-mail to SMS, but Clickatell offers very good rates and is active around the globe, so we thought it was a good choice.


    myFMbutler AutoSender allows you to integrate messaging in your FileMaker solutions. Because it sends e-mail, it can also be used with third party services like e-mail to fax or e-mail to SMS text messaging.

    FM Server 9.0v3 update recommended for AutoSender users

    Tuesday, February 12th, 2008

    If you haven't upgraded to FileMaker Server 9.0v3 yet, and are an AutoSender user, we strongly advise you to upgrade asap.

    FileMaker Server 9.0v2 contains a bug where database sessions can't be closed properly (including disconnects) while an ODBC or JDBC session is active.

    If you are using JDBC with AutoSender to connect to your mail sources, you may experience this problem.

    As a workaround on 9.0v2, stop the AutoSender service/daemon first, before closing the files. Or upgrade to 9.0v3 to solve the problem altogether.
