DetachPipe 8.0

Make Microsoft Outlook faster, more stable and easier to backup with DetachPipe - the email attachment processor. DetachPipe detaches email attachments, leaving a clickable link in place. You can specify a detach filename manually, or use filename placeholders to generate a new name automatically. DetachPipe identifies duplicate files, saving even more space! Just like a normal email, DetachPipe re-attaches the files when the email is forwarded, and offers to delete the files when the email is deleted. With DetachPipe you can save, delete, compress or re-attach attachments, and even set DetachPipe to detach incoming attachments or delete outgoing attachments. It has an AutoDetach mode where attachments over a given size and age are automatically detached every XX minutes or at a given time each day (e.g. before work). Try It Today!

* Upload large attachments to simplify sharing and get around sender's and recipients' attachment size limitations
* Access attachments blocked by Outlook (.exe, .chm, and more)
* Retain the attachment icon on emails for sorting and display purposes

With DetachPipe you can either select which emails to process, or via DetachPipe's menu, choose a folder (and subfolders) to process.
You can ignore attachments smaller than a given size, and/or recent emails.
Attachments can be restored at any time (individually, by selection or by folder).
By default, DetachPipe uses the complete Outlook path to determine where to save. You have complete control over where DetachPipe stores attachments - you can use placeholders to generate a new filename with text like the subject, sender, date, filename and more.

Also includes 12 month FREE use of a 50MB email attachment account at
Also integrates with DropBox for online storage.
