I am developing Filemaker databases and use it for my own business.
One of the cool thing you can do with Filemaker is to send an email from the database. It creates a message in the default email client with contact data taken from the database.
This works very well with Apple Mail and Outlook.
I am now testing Airmail and find it very nice to use. The one missing function is this link with Filemaker.
Is this something you can add in Airmail ?
Thanks you for attention.

This is still the one reason I don't switch over to AirMail. Is there anything we can do to help?
No news on this? For me it's also the only reason NOT to use Airmail.
Sadly because Airmail is definitively better than Apple Mail....
One limitation is you can automate attachments with the open URL/mailto. This may be a deal breaker for me and I’m looking Airmail despite some it of its quirks. I was thinking it could be a replacement for Mail.app.
This is a FileMaker issue that is caused by them using a proprietary communication method with the OS bundled email apps on Mac and PC (Mail and Outlook). The workaround is to use the Open URL script step and the standards based MAILTO: url protocol. Be aware there are limitations to the mailto: protocol.
It does not work for me and gives me an error :
"Some of the files that are needed are either damaged or have not been installed. Please run the installer to correct this problem"
Any idea on how to make it work ?
I'm using FMPA14.0.4 and El Capitan 10.11.3
Scratch that; I see that SEND MAIL fails with Airmail.
You can send mail from FileMaker using Airmail; simply use the SEND MAIL script step, and it'll create a new email message in your default mail client, whether it's Airmail, Mac Mail or some other.
