If you're aiming for portability, beware that there are several different versions of mail(1) and mailx(1). There's a POSIX mailx command, but with very few requirements. And none of the implementations I have seem to parse attachments anyway. You might have the mpack package. Its munpack command saves all parts of a MIME message into separate files, then ...

NirSoft's OutlookAttachView can do this easily, even from the command line! OutlookAttachView scans all messages stored in your Outlook, and displays the list of all attached files that it finds. You can easily select one or more attachments and save all of them into the desired folder, as well as you can delete unwanted large attachments ...

I had the exact same problem. Like BBlake said, do this: *if all else fails, you can check in the registry to see where the temporary files are stored: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\12.0\Outlook\Security\OutlookSecureTempFolder* It will point to a folder in c:...\Temporary Internet Files... If you look in explorer and try to navigate to ...

It's a little backwards, but you can do this with xlsx hasattachment:true

A free tool is doing what you want: Outlook Attachement Remover. Use the feature "Replace by link attachement" so a link is added in the email. They say: The application should run in any Windows 32-bit operational system (Win9x, WinME, WinNT, Win2000, WinXP). The application should run on Outlook 2000, 2003 and 2007. No idea about Vista and ...

You could create a Dropbox account and copy/paste link to the file in "Public" folder. Just remove them after a few weeks when recipient downloaded the file. Yes, it's a "hack", but it might be more convenient than having to upload files to one of those "file hosting" websites.

7zip would do the job. With 7zip you can create a .tar archive, .zip, or a .7z archive. And you can create self-extracting zip executables, in case the recipient doesn't know what to do with a .tar or .gz file. I would recommend you get 7zip and RTFM as to how to use it on the command line.

You can use 7-zip, it may look a bit confusing but this drop down box can actually be edited with a custom value as well: (Depending on the email application's implementation, 50 megabytes could be 50000000 bytes, 51200000 bytes or even 52428800 bytes. I'd use 50000000 to be safe as it's the lowest possibility.)

In Windows Explorer right-click any .log file and select "Open With..." -> Choose Default Program. Select Windows Notepad there (not Notepad++) and make sure that you have the "default" check set. Restart Outlook. Not it has to show you .log files. Update: If not, check HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.log registry key's (Default) value. It has to be "txtfile" (without ...

There are a number of free utilities that offer some of the functionality you require: SaveAllAttachments OutlookAttachView Outlook Attachment Remover I can offer no advice on how reliable/usable these are as I personaly use EZdetach from TechHit which is superb - albeit not free. However, EZDetach and their Simplyfile tool together save me hours every ...

That depends from your MTS. Specifically, it depends from what local delivery agent your mail server is using. For exim's appendfile transport, for example, the administrator might have used the quota_warn_threshold and quota_warn_message options to ensure that a warning message is delivered to a user whose mailbox is close to filling to its assigned ...

It appears that the Chrome settings allow you to open an "Advanced" mode settings page. There, there is a section for handling downloads and where you can check the box telling it to ask the user before every download.

this totally depend on how the mailserver is configured. it is recommended that the postmaster will be notified about undeliverable mail. Example: postfix mailserver allows the following notify options: http://www.postfix.org/postconf.5.html#notify_classes

I have had this same problem with the son of nail (heirloom mailx) on a Redhat ES 6.1. The problem in the end boiled down to the file not being an ascii, unix standard file (that is LF-only). I solved this problem by removing the \r characters from the file before sending the mail. cat logfile | sed 's/\r//' > logfile.new

This is already implemented without addon: just rightclick on the attachment and chose "detach" this will detach the attachment and keep the mail where it is. there will be the message: The following attachments have been successfully saved and will now be permanently deleted from this message: file.test This action cannot be undone. Do you ...

Short answer, Folders don't actually exist the way files do. A directory/folder is a metadata abstraction created by the filesystem, and while their names exist as metadata, and their contents are linked to their names, that data can't stand on its own outside of the filesystem on which they were established. Every filesystem and OS handle them differantly, ...

Not sure which version of Office, but with Word 2003, you can do that as follows: Insert -> Object... On tab "Create from File" click on "Browse" and browse for your Excel file. Check "Display as icon" (make sure "Link to file" is NOT checked). Click "OK".

You have to open outlook then press Alt + F11 On the left pane expand Microsoft Outlook Objects Double click ThisOutlook Session Copy and paste this code: (Note: At "Const save_path As String = "c:\Temp\"" (replace "c:\Temp\" with the path to your file server.

The best program for this purpose is ripmime. It extracts the text and all attachments: http://www.pldaniels.com/ripmime/

I always see the files as attachments. I just did a quick test with a simple text file and it is displayed as an attachment as expected. Perhaps it has to do with the way the file is attached by the sending mail client? If you take a look at the raw source (Command-Option-U), you can see some details on how the attachment is included in the message. If the ...

You could try drop.io (similar to Dropbox) or MediaFire (one-click) hosting. Both have free plans without waiting times or bandwidth limits.

Here's a (beta) solution that keeps you in control of your own files - Opera Unite. They've got a very fast server built-in, and methods to bypass firewalls so one can easily serve your own files over the web. The current 10.1 snapshots contain the latest release: http://my.opera.com/unite/blog/ I use it to serve out large files that mail would choke on, ...

Apple calls this "View in Place". You can control-click the text and choose to display it as an icon (if it is indeed actually an attachment), but as far as I know Mail will not remember this setting. It can indeed be confusing at times. Like for PDF, the way an attachment is displayed depends on the number of pages. To switch it off: defaults write ...

Ctrl + N in outlook will open new email. You can copy past the attachment to the new email. Ctrl + C and Ctrl + V ;-)

There is no default Windows shortcut, however you would be able to create your own using AutoHotKey

It's probably either in the Windows temporary directory, which is by default in "C:\Windows\Temp", or in the user's temporary directory which is in "C:\Documents and Settings\user name\Local Settings\Temp\". If you're looking for a good file-search engine, and if your disk is formatted as NTFS, see the Everything search engine.
