Attachments from SuperContainer

All my client's potential attachments are stored in SuperContainer. I am trying to retool the add attachment script to let me specify a URL in the $result variable to specify the path the plugin uses to get the attachment file into fmSpark. I can't seem to make it work and I'm wondering if the Email_ImportFile function can handle a URL. However, it could just be me being dense! (a) is it possible and (b) any suggestions?

resolved I think

I believe I have something that works using a combination of the SuperContainer plug-in to download the file to the user's Temporary Folder, cleaning up the resulting local path in $result so that the Mailit plug-in external functions can find it and then going from there.

I had hoped for something a little more direct, but at least for now this will keep us moving forward.

I think ultimately your approach is the most straight forward. It'd be interesting to find out if Jesse's plugin can talk directly to supercontainer...that'd be radical

Hmm. Good point, Ernest. I just took a look at the documentation for the 360works Email plug-in and it indicates it DOES accept a URL for the attachment path.

Set Variable [ $result =
EmailRegister( "mylicensekey", "My Company" ) and
EmailConnectSMTP( "" ) and
Email::from ; // required "from" address
Email::to ; // comma-separated list of addresses
Email::subject ; // subject of the message
Email::body ; // message body
Email::attach // path or URL or container to attach

But I don't want to re-write any more of fmSpark than I absolutely need to, so I'll stick with my workaround for now. Thanks for the reply!
