"Excellent Product (Disagree with others)"

February 01, 2012  |  By TommyO2

 |  Version: Attachment Extractor for Outlook Express 1.5.1


1. Installs easily and follows all standard MS Windows protocols for installation and removal.
2. Interface is very intuitive.
3. Capability to filter individual emails by date range and size.
4. Ability to see emails within a folder prior to extraction.
5. Copies internal folder before extraction, works on copy, then saves that folder with an appended name so that you can review results prior to deleting the old folder.
6. Folder view in left hand pane follows same format as within Outlook Express.
7. Status bar at bottom of page shows total number of emails in a folder, folder size, number of attachments. Updates during extract process to show how many emails have been processed, number of attachments removed.
8. Ability to store attachments in any folder, auto-name folder, add links within resulting emails to the attachment locations.
9. Ability to pay with PayPal.


1. Although there is a tab to view the individual emails within a folder and sorting is functional, there could be some additional functionality added, i.e. show attachment names, attachments size or impact, etc.
2. Unread emails are marked as read in the resulting folder.


The first review titled "super junk" is very old, as all the cons listed are no longer valid. At revision 1.5.1. there is functionality for browsing to a folder, and it remembers that folder for later runs. Attachments are removed if you purchase and register the product. Without registration, all other functionality is present, so you can test the program without any difficulty. Installation is very easy and standardized to Windows, so it should be easy to test and see if it is what you are looking for.

For me, it was exactly what I was looking for, which was a means to remove all the old attachments in Outlook Express so I could compress and save space, speed up OE, and speed up our backups. I did not really need to save the attachments. So, I simply removed them to a temporary folder, then deleted the folder later. It worked perfectly and flawlessly. Money well spent.
