If you said, ‘Email‘ then you’d be in fine and discerning company. Yes, it’s the killer app of the internet age, but only so far as we all have to use it, and it would kill us if it could. If you do email, then you need this.
The Attachments Menu App
There’s much to not like about using email. Apple’s built-in Mail app is decent, but all email applications allow too much suffering to slither through each day.
Take email attachments. Please. We all get them. Some of forgettable and easily disposed of with a click.
Unfortunately, in business, the vast majority of email attachments need to stick around on our Macs and PCs for some interminable time period.
Attachments, like other documents, need management. Usually, we store the attachment by simply leaving it attached to the email message.
Sigh. That’s not the way email life should be so someone came up with a better idea. It’s called Attachments Menu, and it’s the first no-brainer email utility for Mac folk.
Whoa. That looks useful, no? What you see in the image above is what Attachment Menu looks like in Mail.
What it does is what Apple should have done to Mail years ago. Any incoming email with an attachment gets indexed and stored in Mail on your Mac.
Use the Menubar to navigate to the attachments that have already been categorized for your viewing pleasure.
Each indexed attachment can even refer quickly to the email that brought it to your Mac with just a click.
Oh, and it’s fully customizable. After all, who knows better than you where your email attachments should be organized?
Attachments Menu is more than just the menu. You can organize attachments however you want. There’s a nominal price tag for this little bit of email freedom, but, fortunately, there’s also a way to acquire it for free (depends on many additional utilities your Mac needs).
