    I followed your directions exactly yet it does not send the email. I have increased the pause to 15 seconds with still no luck. Any suggestions?

      Play around with it. With programming, you sometimes have to “play detective” and troubleshoot problems. Is it switching to Mail? Does it work if you manually click Send? Investigate and experiment.

    MAIL:
    “Shift-command-D” is shortcut for ‘Deliver’ is more intuitive than “Shift-Command-D” for ‘Send’, IMHO.
    Shift-command-A = Attach file, etc.
