Attachment Tamer

Version: 3.1.13 || Release Date: 2013-07-30 || License: Shareware ($14.99) Developer: Lokiware | App Owner: adno

Take control of attachments in Apple Mail.

Former name: Mail Attachments Iconizer

Attachment Tamer gives you control over attachment handling in Apple Mail. It fixes the most annoying Apple Mail flaws, ensures compatibility with other email software, and allows you to set up how attachments are displayed and sent.

Attachment Tamer can

  • display (and print) images, PDFs, audio and video as icons with an optional file size limit and exceptions;
  • send messages compatible with Microsoft Outlook, Exchange and other software, preventing the superfluous "ATT0001" attachments;
  • send images as regular attachments, making it easier for the recipient to manipulate the image files;
  • send images embedded in HTML layout and safely mix embedded images with other attachments;
  • display full attachment names regardless of length instead of truncated names;
  • automatically display attachments at the top of messages;
  • prevent unwanted image resizing or set a default size for automatic image resizing.

Go buy it, it is worth the price. Got it when it was discounted.

fabulous app! I don't know how you can use Apple Mail without it!

This latest major release (3.0) is by far the cleanest looking interface of all, as I have used version 1.x and 2.x. Little used settings were removed and great new ones added. I particularly like having the ability to show the attachments at the top of the message. One simple right click on an icon and you have your attachment in all its glory. This is if you want to see an attachment. Many times you do not and that is where Attachment Tamer shines. Best of all, it is free to version 1.x and 2.x registered users.

I was not aware of how Mail manages jpg attachments and it meant that I kept having people complaining about lo-res images. Iconizer has been working perfectly since I have it and now it also adds making Outlook messages friendly. Great.

The 3.0 update added Outlook support. Amazing. Apple Mail correctly parses emails, and sends technically correct HTML emails. Outlook has a horrible rendering engine and sends poorly formed emails, which work best when sent to other Outlook clients. The update helps Apple Mail emails look correct in Outlook. Definitely worth it for that alone.

Indispensable - I've been using this for many years now, going right back to the days of OSX 10.3 right through to Snow Leopard (currently running 10.6.6 on a MBP) and can't imagine using Mail without it. Every update has worked perfectly. And it's typical of the developer's attention to detail to release this version (3.0) with preliminary compatibility for the forthcoming release of Lion (10.7) already built in. Excellent value, right from the start. Recommend it without any reservation whatsoever.

If you use Mail.app to communicate with Windows and Exchange users, this is an indispensable add-on.

I've been using Mail Attachments Iconizer for some time now. The developer is very responsive...AND the plugin is fantastic as well. Thanks Adam. The update is awesome.

I have used Mail Attachments Iconizer (now renamed Attachment Tamer) for several years with NO problems. It is makes it possible for your non-Mac contacts to receive in-line images in the body of the email (instead of icons or attachment headings) and you can set the parameters for the size and other attributes of attachments that you wish to send as in-line images or as regular attahments. You can also set similar parameters for mail you receive.

If you have a logo in your signature, this app can ensure that it will be visible in place.

Makes your attachments Windows-friendly when you want them that way. And easily reverts to Apple's standard "embedded" attachment style when you prefer that. Simple to switch. Works perfectly. VERY responsive tech support.

Wish it would show me the attachments visually (JPEGs, GIFs, etc.) in my Mail composing window, while still creating a good experience for the Windows-based recipient.

Great little piece of software. Kudos to Adam Nohejl and Lokiware!
