Editors' Review

Download your email attachments to your PC with a single click using Mail Attachment Downloader. This app works out of the box with most of the popular email services and is highly customizable. You can set multiple filters, so only the attachments that matter to you will be saved.

Pros

Safe: Mail Attachment Downloader only scans your emails, and it doesn't mess with them in any way. So there's no danger of having your emails inexplicably deleted, even if their attachments have been downloaded by the app.

Highly advanced filters: With just a few clicks, you're able to set the app to create a new folder for each person who has sent you attachments and then download them based on size, file type, email address, date range, and text in the email.

Fast: The app performed very quickly when we tested its download capabilities. It took no more than 20 seconds from the moment we clicked the "Connect and Download" button for the software to establish a connection with the mail server, check for attachments, and download 30MB worth of data.

Cons

Lack of multiple account support: Currently, there is no way of having the app automatically check for new attachments on more than one email account at a time.

Uninspired interface: While the software's functionality is superb, it is obvious that the app was created first and foremost as a utility. The main window looks bland and doesn't offer any sort of a unique experience.

Bottom Line

Do you have an old email account that you'd like to archive? Or maybe you just want to use your PC's hard drive as a local backup for your email attachments? Then look no further than Mail Attachment Downloader. While the visuals leave room for improvement, the core functionality is rock solid.

May 13, 2016  |  By davinkauf

2016-05-13 15:04:43  |  By davinkauf

 |  Version: Mail Attachment Downloader 3.1 build 843

Pros

We use this to hand off emails with attachment for our inhouse scripts and invoice processing. We liked the following capabilities of the software:

1 PRO version much cheaper compared to other products like email2db
2 Able to export attachments with simple rules to invoicing and SAP software
3 Extract from emails
4 Convert emails to PDF and or email attachments to PDF
5 Extract contents from email
6 Store emails to a database

Cons

1 Could benefit from more documentation
2 PRO Server version is required for advanced functionality

Summary

Automate processing emails and email attachments quickly with this nifty tool. It works great and we are very happy with the outcome.

"Now comes with infuriating delay"

March 18, 2016  |  By joycean88

2016-03-18 09:52:49  |  By joycean88

 |  Version: Mail Attachment Downloader 3.1 build 835

Pros

This used to be a great piece of software.

Cons

Unfortunately, the developers have decided to add a delay mechanism that renders the software virtually unusable, which can only be switched off buying the full product. For personal use (I am a student) the minimum $100 charge is absurd and unaffordable. So it's simply not a free product anymore, and should, in my view, be removed from this site.

"Use in-lieu of expensive SAP/ERP/CRM/Doc systems"

April 06, 2015  |  By markrsmith

2015-04-06 06:23:41  |  By markrsmith

 |  Version: Mail Attachment Downloader 2.4 build 817

Pros

I have a small business and cannot afford investing in SAP/ERP/CRM/Doc at this point. I have several customers send me Excel data that are then filed off for billing. This software provides a simple easy mechanism of auto-filing those documents away and run a simple script (this is written outside of the program) to automate extracting data from the Excel file to write to our in-house database. Works like a charm.

Cons

This program only does the download and the extraction of data from the document or writing to a database is a manual step that you will need to write yourself. But for it's name, it does its job well.

Summary

Quick utility that does an automated download; automation needs manual extensions.

"Download and process invoices in minutes"

October 25, 2014  |  By shipitright

2014-10-25 10:09:16  |  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.
