Editors' Review

+

If you're a heavy user of e-mail attachments, you know how tedious it can be to download them individually and make sure that they're saved in the right location. But they can also take up a lot space within your e-mail account, so letting them hang out there isn't always a great idea, either. Mail Attachment Editor is an innovative program that can automatically find and download your e-mail attachments and save them wherever you'd like. We haven't seen anything quite like it, and we were very impressed with both its ease of use and its effectiveness.

Based on our experiences with other programs that access e-mail accounts for one reason or another, we were expecting to have to spend a lot of time fiddling with Mail Attachment Downloader's settings in order to get it to connect. But that turned out not to be the case at all. We entered our e-mail username and password and the program connected in a matter of moments. We were excited to see that the program let us access not only the contents of our inbox, but also all the other folders within our e-mail account. The program has advanced search filters that let you search for particular attachment file types, dates, senders and recipients, subjects, and more. You can have the program automatically create folders for individual senders or folders that correspond with those within the e-mail account. Mail Attachment Downloader can be scheduled to run automatically at user-defined intervals, making it possible to keep up-to-date copies of all attachments on desktops. The program has a brief built-in Help file, but we didn't need to consult it; the intuitive interface makes everything easy to figure out. Overall, we were very impressed with Mail Attachment Downloader, and we think it's a great tool for anyone who works with e-mail attachments with any regularity.

Mail Attachment Downloader installs and uninstalls without issues.

"Download and process invoices in minutes"

October 25, 2014  |  By shipitright

 |  Version: Mail Attachment Downloader 2.4 build 804

Pros

Was able to download all attachments for the business account within minutes

Cons

Running as a windows service requires additional purchase

Summary

Never written a review before for CNET but compelled to write one here as I thought the software deserves a higher rating.

Using mail attachment downloader to automate business invoices we receive for a couple of months now. The program works phenomenally well once it has been configured.

We receive several invoices from suppliers and we have configured this program to automatically hand off the invoice to our invoice processing software.

Works tremendously well and the PRO version is fairly cheap compared to other more complex and expensive solutions. Highly recommend it if you are a small business to take the hassle out of processing invoices.

"Inconvenient GUI, couldn't connect to Yahoo email"

January 15, 2013  |  By Alan Mintaka

 |  Version: Mail Attachment Downloader 2.3

Pros

None - doesn't work with Yahoo email.

Cons

(Windows 7 Home Premium SP1 platform):
1. Could not paste Yahoo email password from clipboard. Inconvenient to re-type hashed "strong" passwords.

2. Could not connect to Yahoo email server. Tried different accounts, passwords. Zonealarm firewall set to "trust" application, verified setting.

Essentially does not work with Yahoo email. I don't have the time or resources to debug freeware that doesn't work.
