July 18, 2022

Version 3.0.0

  • Outlook and Word instances are reused.
  • For folders, a regex-extracted part of the message text can now be used.
  • File names can now also use a regex-extracted part of the subject or message text. Use the message text for naming files and folders
  • Image and PDF attachments can be attached as new pages to the message when saved as PDF file.
  • Filters for embedding images: Name, minimum dimensions, size.
  • Separate filters to identify messages and attachments to be processed.
  • Output of page number when printing messages.
  • New option when saving attachments/messages: destination folder must already exist.
  • Optional specification of an error directory if the destination folder did not exist.
  • Placeholders can be used for the entire path - the separate base folder has been eliminated.
  • Simple mappings allow individual placeholders - for example a mapping 'Drive' with the content 'C:' can be created or a mapping 'Path' with the content 'C:\File 1'.
  • CSV mappings allow using CSV files for filter criteria in combination with the respective result if the criteria are met. This eliminates the need to create different profiles for different filter criteria. Ideally, one profile is sufficient.
    Step-by-step instructions - create a CSV mapping of sender addresses to locations
  • Mappings can be used: for the path, file name, recipients of forwardings, e-mail folders when moving or copying messages.
  • New placeholders: number of attachments, user name part of e-mail address.
  • The saved message file can be forwarded.
  • Copies of saved message file or attachments can be created.
  • Additional filter for the task status.
  • Images and PDF files embedded in the message text can be optionally processed.
  • HTML images are automatically embedded when sending automatic replies.
  • Postpone processings - apply profiles to messages only after a configurable period of time (e.g., after 2 weeks, based on the message receipt date).
  • Program help updated.
  • And much more.
  • Note: Version 2 profiles can be imported via More -> Import profiles -> Created with version 2.
