Attachment Tamer

3.1.14b9
20 September 2014

Take control of attachments in Apple Mail (beta).

Overview

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;
  • Prevent unwanted image resizing or set a default size for automatic image resizing.

Attachment Tamer is a free update for all registered users of Mail Attachments Iconizer, and provides all the functionality that Iconizer has provided.

What's new in Attachment Tamer

Version 3.1.14b9:
  • Pre-release build for OS X 10.9 Mavericks. Ignore if you do not plan to install OS X Mavericks.
  • Compatibility with the OS X 10.9.5 (Mail 7.3) update to the same extent as previous pre-release builds
  • Code signatures updated according to 10.9.5 and Yosemite Gatekeeper security requirements

Works as advertised, rock solid, no conflicts, first-rate developer support. Bravo! FWIW: When installing a new version, the old "Bundle" is moved to Home/Library/Mail/Disabled Bundles. You may safely delete the Mail Iconizer Disabled Bundles.

Unfortunately it appears that this is now a dead product. No new releases, even to finish the beta for 10.9 much less for 10.10 Yosemite, and no posts to the developer's Twitter account in almost five months. Too bad, as this was a very useful add-on for Mail. I really wish developers would just admit it publicly when they stop developing a product rather than just disappearing.

Another example of "abandonware". Developer could have been honest about the demise of AT rather than promising false promises. Disappointing.

I lost Attachment Tamer when I upgraded to Yosemite but am HAPPY to report that after downgrading back to 10.9.5, the Attachment Tamer 3.1.14b9 appears to be, thus far, function as a release version. It's a great app - one of my must-haves. Thank this developer and appreciate his work in a way that will mean the most to hi

This, posted by Adam Nohejl (developer) o/a 27 Dec 14:

"Dear customers,

After 10 years of continued work on Attachment Tamer and over a year of, admittedly, not being able to keep up with Apple's sped up release cycle and increasing technical difficulties of Mail plug-in development, I decided to find a better way forward for both my customers and myself.

I am preparing a solution for handling attachments in current and future OS X releases, that would be up to the standard set by previous Attachment Tamer releases, in a partnership with well-known Mac developers. As the holiday season has slowed us down, I am going announce the more details early in the new year.

Happy End of the Year,

-- Adam"

I know not what this portends. Perhaps Adam is seeking to seeking a buyer for AT???

Such that it is, 'tis better news than I was expecting...

A great program that needs more developer support. Why in 2014 does Apple not fix this issue and then we will not need this program?

Tired of waiting for a Yosemite fix so I nuked it. Maybe some day it will work again...

Indeed it seems that if the developer was working on a Yosemite update, then he would indicate such on his site.

I too am tired of holding my breath. At some point we must conclude that this critter is not going to rise from the ashes...

Alas, it seems those who opined that Attachment Tamer is no longer being supported were indeed most prescient (unlike moi). While I still hope it rises from the ashes, I would not bet on it. Still, it's been a great ride...

Historically, the developer posted (on his site) an estimated release date upon Apple publishing an updated Mail. Then, true to form, a working Attachment Tamer would be released as divined (usually within 10 days of the new Mail version). Perhaps Adam will update his site with additional detail?

Have you checked the developer's website? It was updated last on Oct. 16 with the following:

"2014/10/16: Attachment Tamer and OS X 10.10 Yosemite

Attachment Tamer does not support OS X 10.10 Yosemite, which was released today, yet. But work on Yosemite compatibility is under way and you can expect a pre-release soon!"

Given the track record of this software since Mavericks, I wouldn't hold my breath if I were you...

The developer is usually pretty responsive -- he seems to be a really nice guy -- but my impression is that he's working on this alone, which means updates are slow and not as complete as you'd like.

It gets more infuriating with each release of Mail.app, that Apple still forces us to embed PDFs and images, rather than attach them. I agree with Sgt_Bilko - this app is most likely abandoned, and the sad part is no other app does this.
