Save Attachments from Outlook Items and MSG/EML/MBOX Files
Discuss these utilities here.
Hello. I have a question about the "Save Attachments" addin. When the addin saves the attachments from Outlook does it remove the attachments from the emails? I would like to be able to extract all attachments from a folder in Outlook but I don't want to remove the attachments from the emails themselves.

Thank you.
Brian Gregory,

No, it doesn't remove attachments.
We have another utility for this - Remove Attachments
Hello,
what happens if there are duplicates with the same name? Are they skipped or are they renamed?
Francesco Cesco,

They are renamed by adding a counter after the file name.
If it saves all attachments to a particular folder, can i still access those attachments from within the mail itself ?

I mean does it create a link or anything pointing to the attachment in the folder?

sorry for my bad English.
bebseh,

We have a few utilities which are working with email attachments.
Saves attachments - only saves attachments to disk without deleting them from an email. So, they are accessible from email itself.
Replace Attachments with Links - saves attachments to disk and delete them from an email. So, they are accessible from email through links.
Remove Attachments - delete attachments from an email. So, they are NOT accessible from email.
Remove Duplicate Attachments - saves only duplicate attachments to disk and delete all but one attachment from emails. So, they are accessible from one email directly and from all other emails through links.
Question about the Save Attachment utility. It installed and set up fine. When I "run" the utility from Outlook, it does exactly what I want it to do. But I want this process to be automatic, and it's not. I have to "run" it to get the utility to move attachments to the specified folder. How do I set it up so that the files are moved automatically as soon as the email is received?

I'm running Win 7 and Outlook 2010, although I could set this up on an Outlook 2013 machine if needed.

Thanks!
Jeffrey, automatic processing is available in the advanced version of Save Attachments utility, thanks to integration with Outlook rules.

How to Move Emails Between Folders in Outlook
You can create Outlook rules to automatically allocate emails to new folders. But to relocate messages and change the folder structure, Outlook does not offer automated tools. Let's see how you can move or copy emails manually and in an alternative manner.

MBOX vs EML File Format
This article will look at the two most common formats for saving single emails or an entire mailbox folder in separate files. Let's see what the difference is between MBOX and EML and how to change one format to the other.

MBOX vs MSG File Format
Files for saving email messages and other data from the mailbox differ in format. The file format you choose depends on your file contents and email client. Let's take a look at two of them: MBOX and Outlook MSG.

MSG vs PST File Format
The email file format can vary. It depends primarily on the email client where the files are created. But even the same email client can use different file types, depending on the content. Let's see what is the difference between MSG and PST, the two main Microsoft Outlook file formats, and how you can change one format to the other.

PST vs MBOX File Format
Different email clients use different data file types to save and migrate the mail. Two of the most well-known file formats for working with message databases are PST and MBOX. Let's see how these data files differ and how you can change one format to another.
