No, I don’t expect Siri will be any better at handling email than I can, but at least someone else would be doing all the work.
Yes, I know that’s a pipe dream. But dreams are free. Email is a time waster. Mail on my Mac doesn’t like some attachments, doesn’t play nice-nice with Microsoft Outlook or Exchange messages, and is in need of an add on to improve my email life.
Attachment Tamer Tames Attachments
Well, duh, Jack! What’s the problem with attachments in Mail? Let me recount the ways. Attachments just are not handled the same way from Mac to Mac, Mac to Windows PC, or back again.
Mac users sometimes send messages and attachments to their Windows PC brethren that end up as some foreign object that Windows Outlook or Exchange can’t figure out.
Images embedded in email messages don’t get treated the same way depending on whether you’re using a Mac or Windows PC.
To improve your email life, you can hire someone to handle all your messages and figure out a solution when a problem crops up, or, you can use Attachment Tamer.
This juicy little app does what Mail doesn’t. It ensures compatibility from Mac to Mac, Mac to Windows PC user. Install Attachment Tamer and it shows up as a plugin within Mail on your Mac.
Attachment Tamer gives you options for Viewing email, as well as Composing and Sending email.
Click the settings that fit your situational issues, and Attachment Tamer alters Mail’s behavior so you can display images, PDFs, even audio and video files as icons within a message.
Messages can be sent that are compatible with Microsoft Exchange and Outlook, and yet still be viewable by other Mac users.
Images can be sent as regular attachments which makes it easier for the recipient to handle, modify, save the images.
Instead of garbled, truncated attachment names, Attachment Tamer makes longer names fully visible. And, you can set a default size for image resizing when sending email with photos.
If you know of the email problems of which I speak, and email remains a problem for you, then you’ll find Attachment Tamer’s try-before-you-buy option a worthwhile use of time. It’s not enough to make you enjoy using Mail, but it can improve your disposition after a day of slaving over a hot keyboard.
