Furthermore, a part of the attachment file name can be used for the folder or file name of the attachment to be saved.

For whom is the program suitable?

The program is aimed at users who receive frequently or at regular intervals emails with Outlook containing an attachment that should be archived or processed automatically. This can be, for example, the monthly bill or a zip file, which should be stored in a specific directory and is handed over to a specified program as parameter for further processing. Especially on a large number of incoming emails, a manual inspection and sorting of the emails can take a long time to complete and binds a lot of work performance. Outlook Attachment Extractor can perform these tasks after a single set up automatically in the background, saving you time.

Flexibly adjust profiles

The software is easy to configure and offers through the support of multiple profiles the possibility of adding flexible filter rules to apply them individually to an email account. Since you can also apply multiple profiles to an email account, the attachments from emails can be stored, for example, depending on the sender or subject in an individual directory. Thus, attachments of certain email types can be stored in directories which are automatically created from the receipt date or from a part of the file name of the attachment. For other email types, for example, the sender's name could be used as a storage folder for the email attachment.
