DetachPipe is a complete email attachment management tool for Microsoft Outlook, letting you automatically detach, restore, save, and remove attachments to conserve valuable inbox space. You'll be amazed at how much space you can free up just by managing attachments, and without having to delete email messages!

Just run DetachPipe and watch your attachments be freed from your Outlook PST file. The result -- a dramatic decrease in your PST file's size, and a boost in Outlook's overall performance and reliability!

Your attachments are safely stored elsewhere on your hard disk, or deleted if you don't need them, with a handy hyperlink to the attachment stored in your email message. If you want, DetachPipe can reattach files to their original email messages. Even better, you can perform detachments, deletions, compressions, or restorations on a folder-by-folder basis!

Dana McIntyre Simon,
Can DetachPipe work with OST / exchange email files? My largest volume of attachments comes from my corporate email system - which has a 1/2Gb total OST file size. Being able to remove, but keep available all attachments, would help tremendously.

Simon Carter Hi Dana - yes, absolutely. As long as they are viewable in Outlook (which means it appears in the folder list down the left hand side), then yes, DetachPipe can help minimize it.

b User 1. I see in your FAQ's that HTML-formatted emails are more difficult for DP to remove the attachments. It didn't say if this was version-related. Is this still true for Otlk 2007-10?

2. Also, your FAQ's say that a particular add-in has caused the scanning to stop after ~ 200 emails. Still true? Are there other add-ins that cause this as well?

3.I send out hundreds of emails over the course of a year and most of them contain a basic company brochure + other information. Do I understand that the "attachments" directory will contain only 1 of the brochure. If I change the date but not the file name of the brochure, will DP keep 1 of each version? As i review my retained copy of the sent email, how can I know what was attached; a file name or a link?

4. Is this v7.1.2 and is it Pro or Lite version?

John Bartow I downloaded the trial version and ran it once on one .pst. file (I use 9) and it went quite fast!
Unfortunately the second trial attempt hit the built-in trial limit of 2000 attachments. But it seemed to working mostly as I expected.

Some questions:
I assumed from the UI that I would be able to store a specific manual definition of file location, etc for each .pst or job. Would that be true?

I also thought that the detached attachments would retain the icon for the attachment and a link to the file location it was detached to. Is that correct? I did have the icon but not a link to the file and I received an error when trying to open it.

What exactly doe the restore feature do?

Simon Carter B G: 1) You're not reading that information quite right - HTML emails present no problems at all. The only issue is that HTML emails often embed images and these are indistinguishable fro 'real' attachments, hence they can get detached as well.

2) Haven't had any repeat of this one in years, will be removed from the FAQ

3) Your Sent Items attachments folder will contain just one file - the identical file searching is at a per folder level, so if the files get saved in different folders it won't find them. There will be a link to the file on disk.

4) Both the Pro and Lite v7.1.2 are included

Simon Carter @John Bartow: Yes, under Settings\Manual Saving, you can set the folder for Instant Detach, and this is the default folder for a manual detach where you get the chance to override the target.

The emails retain the attachment icon if you tell it too (this is the default). An error when trying to open the dummy attachment file?

The restore feature puts the attachments back into the email, and removes them from disk.
