Compress Attached Files into One Zip File and
Password Protect It
Total Access Emailer can automatically compress
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

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.

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. The Access 2010 version includes two libraries:
- A library in the new ACCDE format to support the new ACCDB
databases for deployment to Access 2007 users
- An Access 2003 MDE library to support users who may still be
using Access 2003. This is digitally signed to avoid the nag screens
that exist in Access 2003.
This lets you use Access 2010 to create your email blasts and still
support users who have not upgraded to Access 2010. Of course, features in Access 2010 such as attaching reports as PDF files, would
not be available to the Access 2003 users.
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 or TAERun64.EXE.
