10.7.5 Applescript Error

Finally moved up a notch to 10.7.5 from 10.6.8 to get Indigo 7 happening but am finding some errors
in my dreaded Applescripts. I have no idea how to convert a script like this to Python so for the moment
if someone might have a fix I'd sure appreciate it.

Thanks,

Carl

The error is:
Mail got an error: Can’t make {address:{"ckeyes@cxxxx.net"}, subject:"Alert! Motion Detected From Bunkhouse Camera.", content:"Hey Carl,....

tell application "SecuritySpy"

Re: 10.7.5 Applescript Error

Hi Carl,

It looks like setting the message recipient is now more complicated. Change this line:

Code: Select all
   set newMessage to make new outgoing message with properties {address:the_mailto, subject:the_subject, content:the_content}

to:

Code: Select all
   set newMessage to make new outgoing message with properties {subject:the_subject, content:the_content}

And inside the "tell newMessage" block add this line:

Code: Select all
      make new to recipient at end of to recipients with properties {name:the_mailto}

Re: 10.7.5 Applescript Error

One other question...Are you aware of any AppleScript issues going from 10.7,5 to 10.8?

Many thanks,

Carl
