It depends on exactly wat you're trying to do, but there are ways
(plugins, AppleScript, etc.) to link FileMaker Pro databases and Mail or
Address Book, or you simply use FileMaker Pro as an email client instead
The number of people who need such features would be very limted and
probably not worth FileMaker's time doing.
Although Apple does own the FileMaker company, they are run as two totally
separate companies. It's highly unlikely that FileMaker gets any more
information than other big Apple application developers like Microsoft,
Adobe, etc. - if FileMaker did get extra "inside information", then it
could lead to all sorts of "anti-competitive" court issues.
