The 360Works Email 2 plugin for FileMaker Pro can send and receive HTML or plain text e-mail with SMTP, POP, and IMAP from your FileMaker solution
Email 2 introduces great new features, including sending email from Amazon Simple Email Service, granular control over reading and searching, moving messages, and Instant Messages and SMS / text messages.
How is Email 2 different from FileMaker's Send Mail script step?
With Email 2, we've added the following features:
Jonathan Ackerman told us about one of his solutions using this plugin. "I have created a text formatting solution within IWP for one of my clients using
360Works Email plugin.
I have integrated the Web viewer with fckeditor to allow for complex text formatting within the email body and allow for viewing HTML styles emails
(using PHP to send back the HTML to the web viewer)
You had suggested some of this and I appreciate it.
Check out the example of this solution

Will it run on Windows/Mac? What version of FileMaker is required?
Yes, all of our plugins are designed to run on Mac OS X (PowerPC and Intel) as well as on Windows.
Our plugins take advantage of the plugin features of FileMaker 7 and later, such as attaching styles to text, and are compatible with the most recent version, FileMaker 13. In addition, the Mac versions of all of our plugins ship as universal binaries, and will run at full speed on both PowerPC and Intel Macs.

FileMaker Server Advanced 8.0v4: Unfortunately, a bug in FileMaker Server Advanced 8.0v4 disables all plugins in the Web Publishing Engine on OS X. This affects all plugins, not just ones from 360Works. FileMaker, Inc. is aware of this bug.
Rosetta: Rosetta is not supported. If you are running FileMaker 7 or 8 on an Intel Macintosh, we strongly recommend upgrading to FileMaker 8.5 or later; the speed and stability improvements are very significant.
What about Web Publishing and FileMaker Server?
If you purchase the Enterprise License (see below), then you will be able to use the plugin with the FileMaker Web Publishing Engine. This means that when you use our plugins in your FileMaker scripts, they will work the same way with Instant Web Publishing (IWP). It also means that your Custom Web Publishing applications (with XSLT, PHP, or any other web technology) can call FileMaker scripts that use our plugins.
If you're using FileMaker Server 9 or later, our plugins are compatible with the FileMaker Server scheduled script feature.
Can I use this plugin with my FileMaker runtime solution?
Yes, all of our plugins work in FileMaker runtimes solutions, just copy the plugin to the runtime's Extensions folder.
What kind of licenses are there?
Most of our plugins are available in 3 licenses: a demo version which works for 2 hours every time you launch FileMaker, a Workgroup license for 10 or fewer users, and an Enterprise license for unlimited users within a single organization.
What about FileMaker Go?
If you'd like to add plug-in functionality to a mobile solution, there are a number of options available. Plug-ins cannot be installed directly on a iPhone or iPad, but you can trigger a script on a machine that does have the plug-in installed. Using FileMaker Server, you can have routine scripts that will process all the outstanding function calls. For an example on how to do this, see this article on accomplishing this with Plastic. Alternatively you could integrate RemoteScripter to trigger server side scripts. Finally, FMRPC is a separate product developed as a collaboration between Skeleton Key and 360Works.
