Purpose of this add-in
Most e-mail accounts include a mailbox or
account storage limit. And in 90% of the case, this
limit is breached primarily by the presence of
attachments, ranging from small Kilobytes to large
Megabytes, and even in hundred Megabytes.
There is also a problem
with redundant attachments being accumulated in the
Sent Items folder because a copy of each message
that you send is saved underneath it. This not only
fills up the recipient's mailbox but also
increases the file size of Outlook data file and mailbox. Unfortunately, the
world's most popular email client -
Microsoft Outlook is still devoid of an effective
mechanism for mailbox/Outlook PST size optimization.
How does it work?
The solution to frequent mailbox limit breach is not
'Archiving', but to do away and disconnect
attachments from the mail items altogether, and
store them externally from Outlook, and still
maintain the hard link between the mail and their
associated attachments. Besides, mailbox space are
pretty expensive when compared to a local disk, and
files and documents load up faster from local folder
too than in Outlook. So this advantage itself
favours the argument for moving attachments away from
Outlook. But, if you had expected Microsoft
Outlook would offer a wizard or tool to do just
this, then you are in for a big surprise. There is
no such feature built-in to Microsoft Outlook.
Attachment Manager add-in
for Outlook is designed to bridge this gap by
performing the detachment and storage of attachments
outside of Outlook with complete user transparency,
and yet still offer seamless integration of external
attachments to emails in Outlook. It not
only helps you to save precious space on your PST or Exchange mailbox, but also
contributes in making Outlook run much faster with better
performance, and removes the requirement for constantly
archiving duties. Furthermore, at times when there is a need
to move the attachments back to original mail item,
like when replying or forwarding, Attachment Manager
can automatically re-attach the associated files
from the local disk back to the original email.
