gAttach

CNET Editors' review

Doing for Gmail what the MailTo link does for Outlook, the wonderfully simple gAttach is a small utility that reassigns Gmail as the default mail account from Windows documents. With gAttach installed, selecting Send from Windows Explorer, Firefox, and Microsoft Office automatically attaches the files to a Gmail composition instead of opening Outlook mail. Though effortless, we wish we could associate some file types with gAttach and let others default to Outlook. Also missing is a way for gAttach to automatically divide, where possible, e-mail compositions that breach the 20MB upload limit.

    "Didn't work"

    March 11, 2012  |   By armymrs

    Version: gAttach 1.2008.7.2

    Pros

    Easy download (other than the bloatware included).

    Cons

    Didn't resolve my issue. I still wasn't able to click on a link and have it take me to anything that resembled email. I downloaded Affixa instead and now it's working perfectly.

    Summary

    Don't bother.

    Pros

    I LOVED IT WHEN IT WORKED.

    Version: gAttach 1.2008.7.2

    Pros

    Does just what is is suppose to do!

    None yet...Don't really expect any.

    Summary

    Nice not to have it try to go anywhere but where you want it- gmail, sometimes, so very good program.

    "Failed completely."

    February 7, 2010  |   By blancheirving

    Version: gAttach 1.2008.7.2

    Pros

    None, since the program did not manage anything at all, other than displaying some official looking progress bars and completion messages.

    Cons

    I made many attempts, with various settings, following uneventful installs. Each time it stated that it sent a draft including intended attachment to Gmail 'Drafts' folder. Alleged draft never appeared. Period.

    Summary

    This software proved to be useless, at least to me. Running Vista Home Premium, 32-bit.

    "Good ad on"

    September 19, 2009  |   By monkeyfurball

    Version: gAttach 1.2008.7.2

    Pros

    I was able to email from every program on my computer. Great ad on for freeware.

    Cons

    none at this time

    Summary

    Program works. it's free. I didn't ask for anything more than this.

    Updated on Oct 18, 2011

    Doesn't work anymore. Loved it while it was working.

    "Discontinued by the developer Chris Wood"

    September 17, 2009  |   By dechamp

    Version: gAttach 1.2008.7.2

    Pros

    The developer recommends using his new program named Affixa

    Cons

    Doesn't work anymore, and not under development.

    Summary

    Good idea, shame it's gone.

    "Provides quick access to online-site email sends"

    August 31, 2009  |   By BTDTA

    Version: gAttach 1.2008.7.2

    Pros

    It's simple and works. If Linux becomes as easy we might break the MS stranglehold!. I don't like all the 1 star "It doesn't work" comments skewing the rating so I gave 5 stars to better reflect it's excellence. Few things are Spectacular!

    Cons

    The attachment size could be a little bigger and the "attaching" speed could be quicker. There is probably a "premium" account which offers this but I don't think Google really needs more money to offer a little more user friendliness!

    Summary

    I appreciate any software that gives people an opportunity to break from the Microsoft mold. I don't like Outlook as it is one more way for Microsoft to retain a monopoly on people's (computer) lives. I never even bothered to learn how to use it as I didn't like the way it took over my computer. If people are having a hard time configuring
    gAttach or getting it to work, it is likely because of Outlook being embedded into there office (or other) computer software.

    Updated on Aug 31, 2009

    After re-reading my review I realized it had been largely related to the Gmail function itself. gAttach is separate software and I should have confined my comments and 5 star rating to gAttach which deserves every star!
