Update: Send Mail Windows Nuance & Workaround

I’d like to share my updated thoughts on a previous post. I shared how you can use the script step Open URL to work around a bug encountered with the Send Mail script step on Windows machines running the mail program Outlook wherein the user is left stranded in Outlook.

The Open URL method cannot attach files, a major limitation. Thankfully, I’ve found a workaround for that and wanted to pass it along. A custom function from Rodrigo Torres works like a charm. It creates a custom function that writes out a VB script that saves to the user’s machine, opens Outlook, and creates the desired message with attachments. You can send as few or as many attachments as you like; you just have to update the custom function. As it stands, it sends three custom functions.

Hope this helps!
