DetachPipe is an Add On integrated into Microsoft Outlook for one-click saving, compressing and deleting of attachments. A convenient hyperlink is left in each email and attachments can be saved with the original or a new name and saved in a folder structure based on several email variables (sender, subject, date etc).
DetachPipe can automatically save incoming attachments, and even re-attaches files if you forward the original email (just like normal). If you just reply to an email then the attachment links are removed. Outgoing attachments can be compressed or deleted (since you already have a copy). If you delete an email then the associated files are removed. Duplicate attachments are merged together - saving even more space!
Unsafe attachments are automatically renamed on send, and a recovery note for the recipient is added to the email. Links can be updated if you move the documents.
DetachPipe also includes sharing of large attachments via an integrated online service, or via integration with DropBox.com. Just like email, uploaded attachments are NEVER public - they are ONLY accessible to the sender and recipients. Just like email, recipients can forward attachments, unless you check the 'Your Eyes Only' option, which prevents forwarding. This can be really handy for sensitive business documents, and even for developers to send software patches to individual customers.
DetachPipe leverages the familiar email workflow that people use every day. No retraining is required. DetachPipe helps to keep Outlook's PST Personal Folder files very small, making them easier to backup, and making Outlook faster and more reliable.
