Apple mail integration with Filemaker Pro11

by Funtime_Frankie / August 25, 2011 2:17 AM PDT

Hello. I am looking for a contact management system for my mac that integrates with apple mail. I used to use Daylite until Apple changed MobileMe and made them incompatible. I have been trying to get to grips with a trial Filemaker Pro. Does this have mail integration? Also, where can I get a free tutorial about setting up a database for contacts not for invoices.

<div>What is the best contact management system for the mac? Something intuitive, reasonably priced and easy to use.

Filemaker has Mail integration

Free tutorials may be available at the FMP website and there are a number of books available.

FileMaker Pro for Dummies will step you through the the basics of setting up a database. I choose that as a start because what you are asking does not jibe with your perceived, based on what you wrote, level of expertise with FMP.

I think you will find a Contacts database template within FMP

How does it integrate?

Thanks for replying so quickly. Ive checked out the tutorials on FMP and they don't quite cover what I need though give an interesting overview on the program. FMP for dummies seems like a good start.

No plugin, as far as I remember,

Seem to recall being able to call Mail from within FMP but it has been a while since I played with it.
