Attachment Tamer

Take control of email attachments on 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.

Here's the gist of some of the basic features:

Requirements and Compatibility

This plug-in requires at least Mac OS X 10.6 “Snow Leopard” and is fully compatible with more recent releases including OS X 10.8 “Mountain Lion”.

If you use Mac OS X 10.5.x “Leopard” or 10.4.x “Tiger” and cannot install the current version because of that, download instead this older version for Leopard or this one for Tiger. Note, however, that no more updates for Mac OS X 10.4.x or 10.5.x will be released. The outdated downloads are provided only as a temporary solution for those who cannot upgrade to a more recent release of Mac OS X and they are no longer supported. A free registration code for the Leopard version is included in the download, for the older Tiger version it is: 8A419E1A.
