The Most Powerful Microsoft Access Email Program Just Got Better with Version X.6!
When we introduced Total Access Emailer for Microsoft Access 2010 (version
14), we created X.6 versions to include its new features into Total
Access Emailer for Access 2007 and earlier.
New versions of Total Access Emailer are now available for Access
2007, 2003, 2002, and 2000 (versions 12.6, 11.6, 10.6, and 9.6 respectively).
Existing customers with a current priority support agreement receive
free upgrades. Customers without a support contract can upgrade for a nominal fee.
Here are the enhancements:
Compress Attached Files into One Zip File and
Password Protect It
all your file attachments into one zip file that
is emailed to your recipient. You can even add a
password for additional security. These features are on the Attachment tab when
editing an email blast:
The name of the zip file and password can be explicitly
provided (example above) or use values from fields in your
data source to create a unique file name and password for
Customize Attached File Names Based on Field
Total Access Emailer now supports field references
for embedded object names. Previously, the object
names were fixed values. Now you can use the value
from another field for all or part of its name.
For instance, you can have a report attached as a
PDF file named "Invoice[InvoiceID].pdf" and have
the value in the InvoiceID field be part of the
Attachment File Extension Automatically Updated
Additionally, when specifying the output format of
an attachment, the extension for the file name is
automatically changed based on your selection. So
switching from HTML to PDF automatically updates
the file name from a *.HTML to *.PDF. If you give
your file name a non-standard extension, it is not
International Extended Character Support
Total Access Emailer supports text and HTML emails containing non-Roman,
international characters including double byte characters such as:
- Arabic: النص العربي
- Chinese: 中文文本
- Greek: Ελληνικό Κείμενο
- Hebrew: עברית טקסט
- Hindi: हिंदी पाठ
- Japanese: 日本語テキスト
- Korean: 한국어 텍스트
- Persian: متن فارسی
- Russian: Русский текст
- Urdu: اردو متن
Table Driven System to Continuously Send Emails
An example of a Continuous Emailer Service is
provided to support a table driven system to
continuously send emails within your Microsoft
Access application. New emails can be added to the
table manually or triggered by another action in
the application for e.g. new order, due date, etc.
When the database opens, you can open the form
automatically through an Autoexec macro or naming
the form as the startup form.
The new Code Generator lets you
interactively select options and build the VBA
code to run the currently selected email blast
in your application. Simply set your options and
paste the code into your module to send and/or preview your email blast.
New Programmatic Interfaces to Improve Email
Automation through VBA
Several new VBA functions are available in the Professional Version to provide
more options and control for VBA developers. For additional details, visit
Sending Microsoft Access Email Blasts Programmatically (VBA):
Send One Email
Rather than creating an email blast from the Total
Access Emailer add-in, a new function,
TotalAccessEmailer_SendOne, lets you specify the
information for sending one email. Provide the
FROM address, TO address, subject, message, etc.,
and the email is sent using your SMTP settings.
Preview Email Blasts
In addition to sending email blasts, you can also
preview the emails by sending them to an email of
your choice along with the number of records to
process. This is similar to the interactive
Preview feature from the add-in which you can now
incorporate in your application.
Update and Test SMTP Settings
Two new procedures,
TotalAccessEmailer_SMTP_IsValid, let you specify
the passwords and test the SMTP settings. The
sample database includes a form you can import
into your application to give your users this
feature as well.
Enhanced Professional Version
The Professional Version of Total Access Emailer includes a VBA programmatic
interface that lets you add email blasts to your Access applications and
distribute them royalty-free.
Version x.6 includes new files for the Access add-in. It also has new
runtime library files:
- The Access 2007 version includes an ACCDE runtime
library for ACCDB databases, and an MDE library for MDB
databases for Access 2003 and 2007 users
- The Access 2003 version includes a runtime library
for Access 2002-2003 database formats, and another
library for Access 2000 and 2002 users
- The Access 2000 and 2002 versions include one
runtime library that support Access 2000 and 2002.
deploying the runtime version of Total Access
Emailer, the executable program to run on the
userís machine can now be invoked without the user
seeing it. Use the silent command line parameter
"/s" when running TAERun32.EXE.
Comparison to Older Versions
If you are using a version before we released the Access 2007 version, there
was an X.5 version with many new features described here:
Version X.0 to X.5 Enhancements.
All of those enhancements are included in the X.6 version.
