I have them both, but my email server does not like the way libSMTP  
is formatting the messages and they always fail. I'll try to catch  
the message next time.

In the meantime I was using this OSAX for a FileMaker solution and  
since it was already installed on the other systems and we've been  
using it for a long time, I figured I would use the same thing. I  
finished implementing it today and it's working well.

I'll look into the error as I would like to do it all from within REV.

Thanks a lot!
