What are people saying about DetachPipe

anthonyraynor? I didn't see compatability for Win7 and Office 2010 listed on their site, can I assume it is?  An interesting concept for sure, but is there any way to reverse the process in bulk if I want to?  Going to have to think about this one, any other opinions?
Jun 12 2010 at 2:08pm Copy Link
Mike G Looks nice and DataMystic appears to have a number of impressive products. But I have the same question as T Raynor regarding support for Win 7 (including x64) and Office 2010. When is that expected? Also, if the annual fee is not paid, does the license expire or just the ability to install updates? Is the license per-machine or per-user? BTW, I used another Outlook attachments add-in for a while (not Sperry) and reported a few basic issues in the first couple weeks. Dumped them permanently when the annual fee came due a year later without the issues being addressed or even getting any status or projection.
Jun 13 2010 at 7:18am Copy Link
Simon Carter Yes - DetachPipe is compatable with Windows 7, and we plan support for Office 2010 shortly (it probably works fine without changes).

The detach process can be reversed in bulk (using the re-attach function) if need be, either per email, to selected emails or en-mass to the entire folder tree.

It's a permanent license - upgrades are by subscription - but you can choose not to purchase them and continue to use the product forever. A year of upgrades is included free with the product so you can review how valuable this is to you.

The license is per-machine.
DataMystic - Jun 14 2010 at 10:06am Copy Link
anthonyraynor? Simon, Thanks for the reply.  If companies are doing to do subscriptions, they really should consider an option for a discount for multiple clients.  I personally have 4 clients and 2 servers in my home, buying 4 licenses every year even at at this rate is probably prohibitive.  Just a thought?
Jun 14 2010 at 10:53am Copy Link
Mike G Excellent. Well, I just upgraded to Office 2010, so I can do an eval and beta test at the same time! :) But seriously, I understand Office 2010 is not supported in your current release, so I'll factor out any glitches that might occur.
Jun 14 2010 at 11:00am Copy Link
anthonyraynor? As an aside.  I did take advantage of BackupOutlook the other day.  So I can secure my pst file, try it with Outlook 2010 and even if things don't go well, I can just reinstitute my old .pst file.  Let you know how it goes?

Mike G T Raynor, I hear ya on the multi-license pain. I'm thinking of just getting it for work where my volume of mail and attachments is exponentially greater. Per-machine license model is appropriate for business, but difficult for a family budget... 
Jun 14 2010 at 11:12am Copy Link
Simon Carter There are definitely volume discounts for 2 or more licenses - please see

Simon Carter The licensing is pretty flexible - you can install on a desktop and a laptop no worries - provided they will not be used at the same time. That would count as just one license.
DataMystic - Jun 14 2010 at 2:03pm Copy Link
Mike G Simon, that's a nice deal on the desktop and laptop flexibility and 2 or more volume discounts. Should be good news for a lot of home customers!

M M Simon, 1. Will I see the attachment symbol next to the message after detaching the attachment? So that I can identify which messages had had attachment(s)? 2. What are the dates (created, modified) of files created on the disk?
Jun 15 2010 at 3:47am Copy Link
Simon Carter Hi Marek,

Yes - there is an option (on by default) to preserve the attachment symbol (so you can still search by attachment).

The modified date of files on disk is the date of the email. The create date is the date you detached it. Let me know if that works for you.
DataMystic - Jun 15 2010 at 12:05pm Copy Link
John Kozel HI - Will this detach embedded pictures as well (i.e. in HTML format emails)? My parents like embedding photos in their emails, but it's a hassle to have to right click and save each photo individually. Thanks!
Jun 17 2010 at 11:03pm Copy Link
A. Goyal @Simon, Thx about the dates on the saved files. Does the software preseve the original timestamp on the email? I wouldnt want the email to get the new timestamp when the attachment was detached and a text with the new link was added to the body.
Jun 18 2010 at 2:07am Copy Link
Mike G Oh great. Another long week and 14-hour day today. I actually got home and on my computer a little after 10:40 PM, realize I just HAVE to rest my eyes for a minute and BAM! woke up at 12:04 AM! LOL, maybe I just need a new job. Sorry I missed this one...
Jun 18 2010 at 5:27pm Copy Link
Simon Carter The attachment of the original email is (of course) left unchanged.

Embedded pictures are also saved - this is an option you can control when you detach.

b g 2 questions, please:

1. I attach business brochures to most e-mail so there are likely to be HUNDREDS (or more) of emails with the same attachment, usually a word file. Will this be a problem? Will the accum directory keep just one copy and each of hundreds of emails will link to this one file in the accum directory? There may be several versions of this brochure, same file name, distinguished by date. Will one of each be stored in the accum directory?
2. I use a desktop search program that also scans the attachments and lists all the emails with an attachment containing the word or phrase searched. Will this search program work the same way, listing all emails with attachments containing a searched phrase

Thank you

Dec 12 2011 at 2:34pm Copy Link
Simon Carter @B G: Yes - all files will be linked to a common copy provided their folder name and filename is the same. Ensure that compression is off, and change the Mask field of the Outgoing settings to:

or similar (ie ensure that subject and date are not part of the generated filename)

and DetachPipe takes care of numbering and merging identical copies for you. It also takes care of reference counting, so as those emails get deleted, it will eventually remove the file on disk.
DataMystic - Dec 12 2011 at 2:36pm Copy Link
Simon Carter @B G: It unlikely your search program will follow the links to the detached files. DetachPipe by default leaves a tiny attachment on each email so it is still flagged with a paperclip icon, so searches based on 'emails with an attachment' still work as normal.

When DetachPipe detaches a file, the folder name, filename and date of the file can be used to track down the original email.

Mr Macro Any chance that you can configure a bulk purchase - using the buy now wizard I cannot alter the quantity.

I wish to purchase 18 licenses and I would rather not perform 18 seperate transactions.

May 8 2012 at 9:45am Copy Link
b g I have the impression that this software will detach the attachments from each email and leave a link by which I can go to the storage directory and see the attachment.

1. Is the name / date of the file (now detached) shown, openly, on the email in the Outlook directory?

2. I use a text search program (Copernic -- similar to Google Desktop). Will this program find the searched-for text in files that were once attached to a sent or received Outlook email but now are detached but with a "link" from a storage directory?

I asked this question once before several months ago but things (and answers) change.

Thank you

DroidLuvr I was excited about this program, but I have been unable to get it to do anything. Every time I attempt to do anything with it, I get an error dialog box as follows:

DataMystic - May 8 2012 at 6:51pm Copy Link
Simon Carter @b g: Yes.
1) Yes. You can customize the name of the attachment, buy by default, it includes the subject of the email, the attachment name and type, and has the email's date.

2) Copernic will find the files on disk, but it will probably be unable to pull up the associated email.

Simon Carter @B Josephs: You won't see a reduction in PST size until you compact your PST file. Unfortunately Microsoft decided we can't do this programmatically for you. Here are the steps:

B Josephs @Simon. Thanks for the quick reply (and thanks for the deal!). I'm not 100 percent sure, but I believe I did compact. I guess I need to do some more testing (it was a while back..)

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.
Jan 29 2013 at 6:26am Copy Link
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.

BGee 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?
Feb 1 2013 at 7:29am Copy Link
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?
Feb 1 2013 at 9:57am Copy Link
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


DataMystic - Feb 2 2013 at 1:10pm Copy Link
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.
