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 more details early in the new year.
Happy End of the Year,
PS: If you are repeatedly getting a message about Attachment Tamer being disabled on OS X Yosemite, you can use the latest pre-release installer to remove it.

2011/8/22: Palm Encoding Setup and Palm Doc Converter applications discontinued.
I do not plan to release any updates for Palm Encoding Setup and Palm Doc Converter. Both applications can now be dowloaded and used for free, and both still work on the current version of Mac OS X.
Now seems to be a good time to do this as Palm OS is effectively outdated by two generations (Palm OS and webOS). It's kind of sad to see another great mobile UI created by Palm go.

Apple Mail displays most of the attached images directly in the messages. This feature may be useful, but when dealing with a complicated PDF or PostScript (PS, EPS) file, it turns viewing a message into a nightmare. Viewing a message with an attachment can take up to several minutes.
Mail Attachments Iconizer is a plug-in for Mail, which ensures that the attachments are always displayed as icons when a message is opened.
