Email from Approach possible?

Email from Approach possible?

Email from Approach possible?

Hi all,
I have been using approach for years as a basic friends/business contact database no problem. Now I would like to send invitation email to my friends only. Is this possible to do from approach?

If not, what Lotus product does that?


RE: Email from Approach possible?

You can use the OPEN command in a macro to do this. Instead of putting a file name in the command, you can put "mailto: etc... " in the space. You can insert an email address from a field by putting the field name into the command like this: <<mydbf.email>>

I use BLAT within a batch file to send emails out from databases. Run it from the OPEN command but with "clever" use of batch files I can put vairables from Approach (exported out) into the content of my files - even create html format by using lots of text files and combining! - Big advantage is that I do not need mail client on my PC's and the operator does not get a chance to not send mail!
