"Must have Mail.app plugin!"

March 15, 2011  |  By Ergolad

 |  Version: Attachment Tamer 3.0

Pros

Great Support
Stable
Solid performance
Tight integration
Super-fair upgrade policy!!!

Cons

None that I can think of!

Summary

Been using it so long in combination with Mail.app I can't imagine what it would be like to use Mail without it!

This is a solid, ever-evolving Mail.app plugin. As a switcher, and once heavy user of Outlook, this tool solves a lot of the issues that I had in regards to attachments in Mail.app. Have been using it, and its previous incarnations from the beginning. Happy with its performance, and support, when needed, has always been prompt & truly helpful. Love the new features in V3, particularly handling rogue ATT attachments that seems to find there way into messages when viewed by Windows users.

"Attachment Tamer 3.0 - One great update!"

March 13, 2011  |  By psr--2008

 |  Version: Attachment Tamer 3.0

Pros

Suppression of attachments, unless wanting to visualize. It is just so sweet how well it works.

Cons

I see nothing to complain about. Attachment Tamer is perfect and a much needed addition to Mail.app.

Summary

This latest major release (3.0) is by far the cleanest looking interface of all, as I have used version 1.x and 2.x. Little used settings were removed and great new ones added. I particularly like having the ability to show the attachments at the top of the message. One simple right click on an icon and you have your attachment in all its glory. This is if you want to see an attachment. Many times you do not and that is where Attachment Tamer shines. Best of all, it is free to version 1.x and 2.x registered users.

"Fabulous! Couldn't live without it. Whither Apple?"

March 09, 2011  |  By rdkiley

 |  Version: Attachment Tamer 3.0

Pros

I use Mail for business and having full-size images and documents obscures my company's logo and branding. It also makes for unprofessional looking email.

Cons

Why doesn't Apple include with Mail?

Summary

I install every update immediately.

"App is a lifesaver!"

March 09, 2011  |  By slarson11

 |  Version: Attachment Tamer 3.0

Pros

Makes Apple mail attachments appear for PC users

Cons

None that I know of

Summary

An important client (who uses Outlook) kept having problems receiving my attachments. It was becoming such a hassle I was afraid I'd lose that business. This little app makes my attachments into files that she can see, rather than putting them in line like Apple mail does. Attachment Tamer saved me a client!

"Makes Apple Mail Work Right!"

March 08, 2011  |  By mikepl

 |  Version: Attachment Tamer 3.0

Pros

Good control over options.
Makes reading email from Outlook users much easier - no extra clicks or steps to see attachments in their native state.
Awesome support from developer.
Once you set it, you forget it's there

Cons

None that I can think of

Summary

I've been a user since Attachment Tamer was called Mail Attachments Iconizer v.1. Only had one issue with a poorly formatted email newsletter. Adam (the developer) worked through a solution with me in a very short time. Can't imagine using Mail without this very well integrated enhancement.

"Displays attachments (not logos) in Mac and Outlook."

March 08, 2011  |  By Benoit Evans

 |  Version: Attachment Tamer 3.0

Pros

I have used this app for years with NO problems. Non-Mac contacts receive in-line images in the email body (not icons); you set parameters for size and other attributes, for sent and received mail. A logo in your signature, will display properly.

Cons

None that I have found.

Summary

Well made plugin for Apple's Mail.app. Ensures compatibility with Outlook and G-Mail. Displays in-line images (such as signature logos) according to your settings.

"Great add-on for Mail; does what it says perfectly"

March 08, 2011  |  By freeassociates

 |  Version: Attachment Tamer 3.0

Pros

Makes your attachments Windows-friendly when you want them that way. And easily reverts to Apple's standard "embedded" attachment style when you prefer that. Simple to switch. Works perfectly. VERY responsive tech support.

Cons

Wish it would show me the attachments visually (JPEGs, GIFs, etc.) in my Mail composing window, while still creating a good experience for the Windows-based recipient.

Summary

Great little piece of software. Kudos to Adam Nohejl and Lokiware!

"Must have for Apple Mail"

March 08, 2011  |  By jctonett

 |  Version: Attachment Tamer 3.0

Pros

Does exactly what it says! I've been using for almost a year and it is great for managing attachments and formatting them so you receive them as you want. Developer also updates frequently.

Cons

None that I've found

Summary

If you use Apple Mail as your mail client, I don't know how you are doing without this, or why you would want to.
