Automatically send email from FileMaker Server without using the standard email client

Messaging solution

AutoSender is a messaging solution robot that allows you to automatically send emails from your FileMaker solutions, based on the status of a FileMaker field. You can easily manage several files from which to send email.

AutoSender also supports automatic sending of faxes or text messages through the use of a third party fax or texting service.

Because AutoSender has its own built-in email engine, it doesn’t use the standard email client on the customer’s computer, which allows for an easier setup and increased reliability because you have more control of the process from within your application.
