FileMaker Email Plugin Comparison

FileMaker Email Plug-ins: 360Works Email Plug-in vs. 360Works CloudMail Plug-in

Is it Time to Use a Plug-in?

If you have been wanting to do more with your email communication in FileMaker it may be time for a plug-in. Plug-ins solve a critical need by providing or simplifying functionality in the FileMaker platform. For example, if you need graphically-enhanced or images-filled emails, you can use a plug-in to send HTML emails by simply calling a plug-in function as opposed to having to take time to write scripts and implement longer processes.

At 360Works, we provide over 18 products as well as custom plug-ins, and consulting to help you do more with your FileMaker solution, while saving you time and energy. Two of our products that improve the email sending capabilities of FileMaker are the 360Works Email Plug-in and the 360Works CloudMail Plug-in.

360Works Email Plug-in

The 360Works Email Plug-in is ideal for reading messages into your database, which you cannot natively do in FileMaker. Overall, with this plug-in, you can send and receive HTML or plain text email with SMTP, POP, and IMAP from your FileMaker solution. Additionally, you can send SMS / text messages from FileMaker, as it leverages powerful sending services from AWS. Use the Email Plug-in for:

  • Sending mixed part emails (HTML and plaintext)
  • Receiving/reading incoming emails
  • Sending SMS and text messages

360Works CloudMail Plug-in

The 360Works CloudMail Plug-in is essentially made for Email marketing in FileMaker. It is a FileMaker email management plug-in for sending outbound HTML and plain text email messages and monitoring email interactions using Amazon Web Services. It is fast, easy to use, and tracks email engagement! Use CloudMail for:
