Configure the plug-in
Now the plug-in is installed, you can set the default preferences in the plug-in Configuration Dialog.
On Mac OSX, go to the "FileMaker Pro" menu, and then select "Preferences". This will bring up FileMaker Pro's "Preferences" dialog.
A couple more commonly used settings in the Configuration Dialog are the "Backward Compatibility" and the "Email Character Set" values. Both of these settings are found on the "Advanced" tab.
If you previously used our Classic SMTPit plug-in, your scripts probably use the old style functions. The old style functions all begin with the word "External", so they are easy to spot. In order to make migrating from the old functions to the new functions easier, this setting gives SMTPit Pro the ability to use the functions of the Classic SMTPit plug-in. Please see this FAQ article for more information.
Email Character Set
By default, the plug-in uses the ISO-8859-1 character set when sending email (even though the field is blank it is set to ISO-8859-1). If you need to send email that contains accented characters (e.g. an email written in Japanese ), change this setting to the character set needed. Note, many times setting this to UTF-8 will work for most languages.
