Best Temp Pass Autoresponder?

Hi Alex,

I believe the problem is that LC function
doesn’t work in server even though the
documentation says it should work in

I tried the example in the dictionary
for reversedName.  It works fine in
the IDE.  Once it is put into server
like the following the first line gets
flagged with the error.

  row 854, col 1: if: error in command (function)
  row 854, col 1: script: bad statement (function)


function reversedName firstName,lastName
  -- firstName and lastName are parameters
  put lastName,firstName into constructedName
  return constructedName
end reversedName


Can we unravel the email send code so it
doesn’t use functions?

I did try putting the email send code into
the IDE and it put the message into the
message box without sending out the email.
Perhaps that needs to be proven to work first
in the IDE?

I used the example code you provided as
a test to be sure we were on the same page,
and, it didn’t work.
