Attachment Tamer for Mac

20 September 2014

Take control of attachments in Apple Mail (beta).

What is Attachment Tamer for Mac

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

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.

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...

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?

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.

The attachments were all icons but when she sent it all of the tags showed up in the middle of the email for all 12 attachments, example of just 1 below: [see attached file: Offset Printing Specs.pdf] Also, our company logo from the signature now shows as an attachment. Needless to say, my boss is not a happy camper. Please help! Thank you, Bri

This is a great little app. I picked it up as part of the MacUpdate Bundle thinking it would be one of those apps I give away. However, it's been working quietly in the background making Mail work almost like it should. I'll give it 5 stars when it can show attachments at the top of messages. That would be the ultimate improvement for Mail!

Fantastic it does exactly what it says it would do. Easy to install, easy to configure and easy to use. Overcomes the Apple Mail foible of not showing the full name of attachments on the email, essential for business. This programme is also retrospective, all my stuff going back to 2009 when I started with MacBook has also been re-configured in the proper way.

I have been using Mail Attachments Iconizer, later Attachment Tamer, since 2005. Always worked perfectly for me. The stationary bug in 3.1.1 was the first issue that forced me to temporarily uninstall Attachment Tamer. But the issue is already fixed in 3.1.2. The ridiculous price confusion is caused by the MacUpdate Bundle offer. Attachment Tamer is still $14.99. The MacUpdate Promotion Bundle would normally cost $457.00 and is now offered for $49.99.

Can this be done? flag a specific attachment in a received email as a "signature/logo/ignore", so that in all subsequent emails received from anyone, if the same attachment is found (same by hash, typically) it does not trigger the display of the clip icon in the mailbox and does not appear in the "save" menu of the attachments and does not get saved when "save all" is pressed. It's so frustrating that all emails from certain users appear to have attachments when in fact only have graphic signatures.

Excellent software, saves me a lot of time as it handles the mail attachments as it should be. Especially when you are mailing attachments to Outlook-/Exchange-Users in larger enterprises you will encounter usually problems as the recipients can't save the file in a secured environment. With attachment tamer it simply works. I am using it for years now and it was always updated for free, the developer is very responsive, I received my lost serial number in less than 30 minutes. This is a software I always recommend to new Mac Users as a must-have.

Hey there, just a quick question here: I've been roaming around the net to find a solution for what appears to be an ongoing bug in Mail 5.0 (and onwards). It concerns not being able to delete attachments from sent messages (the 'remove attachments' option in the menu is grayed out). Mail doesn't seem to recognize these messages as having attachments. There are a couple of workarounds (too much of a hassle really), so I was wondering if this app will do the job? Thanks!

It is a great enhancement to Mail.app: no more worrying whether users of MS Exchange and/or Outlook will be able to see and open my attachments. It is possible to avoid this by changing settings in Mail.app, but then you will not be able to send RTF-messages, just plain text. And, while I never use that much of textual extras, an occasional numbered or dotted list, a word in bold or italic, will greatly enhance the readability of your text. Recommended!

I bought this software while looking for a way to make a one page document or one photo show up as an icon in an email attachment. Apple Mail will do that, but it doesn't always stay that way. Attachment Tamer DOES!! I wouldn't be without it and was notified by the developer yesterday that it is now updated. I updated and it still works perfectly. It is even updated for OS 10.7. It's a 5 star for me. Highly recommended. It does much more that I need. It is worth every penny. One thing I forgot to add is that Attachment Tamer lets you place the attachment in the email where you prefer it to be. Harold

Previously, if I clicked open an attached document I could correct it AND the correction was saved on the original on my hard drive, NO longer. Change since installing Attachment Tamer. I cannot make changes to the attachment,neither to the copy attached nor do any changes get recorded on the original version on my Mac. This IMHO needs to be documented clearly. I cannot yet rate this application fairly. Please disregard my rating as I am required to rate to submit my comment.

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.

Solid, ever-evolving Mail.app plugin. As a switcher, and once heavy user of Outlook, this tool solves a lot of the issues that I had in regards to attachments in Mail.app. Have been using it, and its previous incarnations from the beginning. Happy with its performance and support, when needed, has always been prompt & truly helpful. Love the new features in V3, particularly handling rogue ATT attachments that seems to find there way into messages when viewed by Windows users.

I've been a user since Attachment Tamer was called Mail Attachments Iconizer v.1. Only had one issue with a poorly formatted email newsletter. Adam (the developer) worked through a solution with me in a very short time. Can't imagine using Mail without this very well integrated enhancement.

Special thanks to the developer to providing version 3.0 as a free update!!! This program is well thought out, the price is very reasonable, the app works flawlessly, and the developer provides frequent updates. I don't post many reviews but felt I owed it to the developer; it is a great product and he/she has provided version 3.0 as a free update.

Couldn't live in Windows world without this. New version seems to work perfectly, installed easily and it's free! "Only" give 4.5 stars for features as this guy is good and will probably think of something new so I have to leave room for a higher ranking there.

Bought a licence some time ago as I was just sick to the back teeth of the excessive space that was being used by all the images I was receiving (and sending). Adam's done a great job with this plug and sending the new v3 at no cost was just the cherry on top!

Marvelous little gem that I've been using since version 1. The developer keeps improving and constantly updating the app to fit Mail's ever increasing demands and run with new version numbers. Don't want to miss this plug-in. Great work and a reasonable price.

This application works very well; exactly as described. I often mail batches of single and multiple page PDFs to my clients and was always annoyed that the single page versions displayed the document while the multiple page versions displayed only the icon. It made it difficult to check that I had included all the attachements as the icons tended to get lost among the large page-sized attachements. Mail Attachments Iconizer solved this problem. There are only two changes that I'd like to see. First, I'd like separate settings for incoming and outgoing mail. For instance, I'd like to always see pictures that friends send to me no matter what size they are. Second, I think that the price is a little steep.

Indispensable - I've been using this for many years now, starting from Panther I think (10.3.x on an iBook) right through to Snow Leopard (currently running 10.6.3 on a MPB) 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 (2.1.11) in readiness for the upcoming dot release. Excellent value, right from the start. Recommend it without any reservation whatsoever.

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.

This add-on makes handling attachments in Mail.app a breeze. The author is be commended for developing this enhancement to Mail. It gets rid of Apple's messy handling of attachments in their, otherwise, superior eMail client. Attachment handling with Mail Attachments Iconizer is truly a breeze! Mail Attachments Iconizer is well worth its nominal fee! Truly, Mail Attachments Iconizer is an excellent value! Get it, YOU won't regret it!

Sadly this plug-in does not work with SL 10.6.2 and Mail 4.2, when Mail attempts to load Attachments Iconizer 2.1.5, the following message appears: "Mail has disabled the following plug-ins: Mail Attachments Iconizer Contact the makers of these plug-ins for versions that are compatible with Mail 4.2 and Message 4.2." I hope the developer will fix this problem soon, because AI is a very useful addition to Mail.app.

Hello, It was long time ago that I looked at Mail.app - I'm totally pro apple but i find mail is "to small not worked out at all". So many functions for automation and customizing aren't there... If you watch the rules for mails... so little possibilities. But a few weeks ago - I need Mail for automation my E-mails. Want to applescript my workflow and then it's better to use mail. But I had troubles with the attachments. (.txt) I knew there where in the past a lot of problems with mail and attachments... (.eps and .ps where real mail problems) That's one of the reasons I changed my email software. Now today I'm using Mail Attachments Iconizer 2.1.4. and without any problems. It's even stronger for me... Without Mail Attachments Iconizer I don't use Mail !!! Then I can't do anything with it !!! Clean install - easy and very clear to me. I can choose what to do with the attachments... These functions aren't build in mail and YES it should be. Also possible to say show or not show from the file size. nice. I see one smart post in the comments and that's about the terminal. OK that's also possible but I like to do it with an interface in mail and that's what's Mail Attachments Iconizer is about. No terminal needed and it does what I need. not more / not less Will give more feedback when I have done more with mail and tested all functions of Mail Attachments Iconizer. Keep on the good work Adam !

Follow-up to earlier post. My Mac guru buddy was needed to fix this. Apparently, Adam thinks it's cool to make his plug-in invisible so you have to go through a whole drill to remove this garbage. Adam buried the instructions on his website. Nice, Adam. Btw, want to iconize your non-iconized attachment? After it pops up in full in your email, right click! There, you're iconized. Please send the money you would have paid Adam to the charity of your choice! Don't like being this critical, but I find Adam's behavior to be atrocious. He cost me thousands of dollars today and really pissed me off. Adam, why would you do such a crappy thing? Please ask your parents if they think you are behaving properly. You clearly need some help.

I downloaded but don't believe I ever installed this program. When I opened "Mail" this morning, a pop-up told me I had an unregistered copy and that if I didn't purchase the product or emove the plug-in, the pop-up display would start every time I open Mail. I can't find the f'n plug-in using the name of the program or lokiware. I have no idea what plug-in it is. I googled the developer, but there is no info re contacting him at his lokiware site. This is ridiculous. My mail program now won't work at all. If I am being ignorant, please correct me. I think this is BS. Who the hell is Adam Nohejl that he can screw up my computer and work environment to sell his overpriced product which, I've been told, does nothing that Mail can't do already. I've been iconizing attachments very nicely using Mail only. This totally stinks. Adam - why do you not have any contact info on your site? Do you like screwing people over and messing up their ability to make a living? Why the f don't you tell people that you will hold them hostage once they download your program? If anyone can tell me how to find this plug-in and get rid of it, I'd really appreciate that. Thanks.

One week after my review (see below) the developer wrote me saying he was on vacation and that's why he didn't reply immediately. All right. It took the developer ONE month to solve the problem I had but he did it! And because I'm not a monster and don't want to "destroy" somebody's business I'm writing this posting now. Yes, Mail Attachments Iconizer works fine! But I still think such a small application should actually be free or cost 5 dollars, the most.

I bought this app. I have a MacBook Pro 2.2 GHz with 2 GB SDRAM under Leopard 10.5.4. When Apple Mail is open and a message with Attachments (for ex. photos, total size 3.4 MB) is selected CPU activity of Apple Mail rises up to 99% and the fan goes on forever. That was not so before installing MailAttachmentsIconizer. I deinstalled the app and Apple Mail is fine again. I emailed the developer but never got a reply!

Works well for what it does. It meets a reaI need and I was glad to find it. But I agree it costs way too much, so I haven't paid and just put up with the annoying box it displays when I launch Mail.

I dunno. It is a good little app, but it's just that. $14.99 is just far too steep for it. I don't have a problem paying what something is worth, but this is simply worth about $5.99.

Dear anonymous user, This feature IS NOT integrated in Tiger's Mail. Without Mail Attachments Iconizer there's no option to *prevent* attachments from displaying, you can only turn them to icons manually *after* they have loaded. Please read the Read Me or try it before commenting or explain how it's integrated in Tiger's Mail.
