Mail Attachment Downloader

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.

Developer's Description

Mail Attachment Downloader downloads and processes all your e-mail attachments at-once based on your search preference. It leaves all your mail on your server and will not interfere with any other e-mail programs you use today to download your mail. You can setup various filters, like size, file type, who it is from, subject of e-mail, date and time stamp, to specify what you want to download. You can also setup a schedule where-in the program fetches attachments on a regular basis in the background when the program is running. The program is minimized to your system tray and will notify you of downloads in real-time. Mail Attachment Downloader works with any Exchange, Office365 or IMAP service. Exchange or IMAP is preferred.

Extracting data from the e-mail subject and body, sending e-mails after downloading, saving e-mails to a database, saving .csv or excels to a database, converting attachments to PDF, TIFF or other formats, automatically printing attachments and advanced functionality is limited in the free version. But otherwise the software is fully functional and ad-free.
