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.

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 The outdated downloads are provided only as a temporary solution for those who cannot upgrade to a more recent release of Mac OS X and they are no longer supported.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.
The software you have known as Mail Attachments Iconizer is now called Attachment Tamer. If you are a registered user of Iconizer, Attachment Tamer is fully covered by your license: you can download it as a free update. Thank you for your support!
News 2014/2/26: v3.1.14b6
Pre-release build for OS X Mavericks: compatibility with the OS X 10.9.2 (Mail 7.2) to the same extent as previous pre-release builds. I am sorry, but I cannot respond to all the questions about the final release date. I understand how much Attachment Tamer is important to you, and if I could guarantee a final release date, I would have posted it here.
