Receive Email drops

As you know we have a couple of Drag and Drop functions in our Filemaker plugin. Recently we added possibility to receive URL drops. That means you can drop an URL dragged from Safari or other application onto Filemaker. That is very useful if you want to make database with links.
Today I figured out that you can use a similar approach for receiving email drops from Apple Mail.
So with next Filemaker plugin you can accept emails for drag and drop. You can query details on the email like it's URL, the subject, ID, mailbox and account. This even works for multiple emails.

We don’t currently have classes of this on Mac. Will have to check in the next months.

thatīll be great – just as in Bento. That could be THE solution for all CRM in FileMaker, since most people donīt want an alternative to their mail program in FileMaker, but of course they want to see at least important incoming mail in their CRM built in FileMaker. Outgoing mail was never a problem.
