Spooty Attachment Extractor is a program which bulk extracts attachments from e-mails stored in Outlook Express mailboxes. It saves you the hassle of having to open every e-mail and save the attachments manually. It is ideal for people who are e-mailed attachments from friends or a mailing list and want easy and fast access to those attachments. Spooty Attachment Extractor has the additional feature of cutting the attachments from the e-mails, so that once you have finished extracting the attachments, you can "Compact" your mailbox using Outlook Express and free up the disk space that was used by the attachments still left in your mailbox. Why have two copies of the attachment when you can eliminate the old and bigger copy? (Attachments are stored encoded and are 33% bigger inside Outlook Express mailboxes) The text in the e-mails that stored the attachments is left untouched by an intelligent e-mail parser that clips only the attachment from the e-mail.
I actually liked this little program, and used it so much that I did buy the registry key. In fact, although I still had my key, I had to come here to find the download link again due to a complete reinstall on both hard drives.
There's nothing that I don't like about it; it is extremely easy to use. Takes just seconds to extract a hundred files or so.
Simple install, a couple of files, probably would run off of a floppy disk.
Installed twice, didn't work either time. Looked like it was working but didn't extract the attachments. Don't give up Spootyware people, thanks for the attempt. No apparent spyware, viruses or anything malicious. Used WinXP OS. If it worked, I'd give you ten bucks for it.
It extracts the attachments fast. It cuts them perfectly, i've had no corrupt emails. It's got all the options i need and works flawlessly, extracting all my pictures of documents just fine. Simple, easy to use interface. Tiny non-bloaty program size! Grade A product!
