What's new in Version 4.0?

bullet Added support for 64 bit Outlook 2010 and Outlook 2013.
bullet Added 'Folder & Auto Option' button. Here you can specify a custom destination file folder for that particular Outlook folder overwriting the global file folder. Additionally, you can set automation on folder level in two ways. The first, allow the addin to automatically detach attachment files from the newly received incoming email. The second option allows you to specify the number of days (i.e. age) the emails can remain in the Outlook folder before the attachments from the emails are automatically detached to the mapped file folder.

bullet Added 'Mapped Folders Info' button. This tool will generate a list showing which file folders are mapped or associated to which Outlook folders. You can use this tool to quickly specify destination file folder for individual Outlook folder.

bullet Added 'Summary Report' button. This tool shows existing email items of that particular Outlook folder that are yet to be detached. You can then choose multiple email items to detach or delete.

bullet Added support for recursively detaching of attachments from all emails under a particular Outlook folder and its subfolders. This is available under Outlook > Attachment Manager toolbar > 'Detach Files' menu > 'Detach all mails of this folder and its subfolder'

bullet Added option 'Follow Outlook folders Hierarchy' under Outlook > Attachment Manager toolbar > Settings > Output Settings tab. Enabling this option will force the addin to output the detached files into subfolders similar to hierarchical ordering of the Outlook folder.

For instance, if the attachments file folder is C:\Users\[USER]\Documents\My Attachments, and if the email is in your Inbox (\\Monica\Inbox) then attachments from that email will be detached to folder path similar to 'C:\Users\[USERNAME]\Documents\My Attachments\Monica\Inbox'.
bullet Added a new application 'AssistMyTeam.AttachmentManagerAdmn.exe' with which administrator can pre-configure various settings of Attachment Manager such as specify a network share/disk as attachment output folder for all users of your company and other output settings and behaviors of the add-in and save them to an external XML file (named 'AttachmentManagerSettingsInfo.xml'. This XML file can then be placed on a network shared folder along with the Attachment Manager setup file (e.g., AttachmentManagerSetup_x86.exe or AttachmentManagerSetup_x64.exe) for enterprise deployment of pre-configured settings of Attachment Manager addin to multiple systems. NOTE: This feature is only available for available to Enterprise License holders. Learn more on Enterprise Deployment


What's new in Version 3.0?

bullet Added support for specifying a separate attachment folder for each Outlook folder, in addition to the support for using a global attachment folder for all Outlook folders. If a separate folder option is enabled, on each Outlook folder, a button 'Specify Attachment Folder...' button will be visible in the Attachment Manager toolbar or ribbon.

You can then choose a file folder from the browse for folder dialog box. If a file folder had been specified previously for the current Outlook folder, the caption of this button will change to 'Change Attachment Folder...', and if you hover the mouse over it, it would show the full path of the attachment folder path in the tool tip balloon.
bullet Added support for batch detachment of attachments from all mail items in the Outlook folder. There is a new button 'Detach All' available under the 'Advanced...' drop down menu.

bullet Added support for batch re-instatement of detached files from the attachment file folder back to the original emails in Outlook. There is a new button 'Re-Attach All' available under the 'Advanced...' drop down menu.
bullet Added support for automatic detachment or deletion of attachments from the sent items folder. By default, it is disabled.

bullet Added a new feature whereby you can copy all the attachment files to a user specified file folder, instead of detaching the actual attachments from the emails. For this purpose, there is a new button 'Copy attachments to a custom file folder' under the 'Advanced...' drop down menu.
bullet A new enhancement in automatic detaching of attachments from monitored folders and mailboxes, is the addition of scanning at Outlook startup or when a new mail folder is added for monitoring. With this arrangement, existing emails or those emails that arrived in the Outlook folder when Attachment Manager add-in was not running, are automatically processed so that you don't have to hunt them and detach manually. So, don't panic when you see the following dialog box at startup.

bullet Fixed a bug whereby the files links to the detached attachments are not embedded into the email body for few email items. This typically happens to those emails that have both embedded images in the body (inline images) and other attachments (visible with clips).
bullet Fixed a bug where in reply or forward window, if you try to use the 'Remove Links' or 'Re-attach files' buttons (located in the inspector ribbon), Attachment Manager does nothing. This behavior only happens on Outlook 2007 and 2010.
bullet The first option in the attachment naming scheme (which is 'Received Date/Time + Attachment Name') is now altered. In the new version, the received date is formatted as 'yyyy-mm-dd_hh.mm.ss'.
