Replace Outlook Attachments with Hyperlink

Sometimes Outlook email can become cluttered with lots of attachments. There is now a great free utility which allows you to save your outlook attachments and then replaces them with a hyperlink to the location where they are.

You need to install the software while outlook is closed. It then adds an additional toolbar into outlook. You can then select either one email, folder or multiples and click on the button, you would then see something similar to the following screen.

Simplyfile – Essential Outlook Add-On £/€/$


Simplyfile is what I would consider to be an essential Outlook add-on.

Instead of having to create rules in outlook and then maintain them when things change. If you use Simplyfile it can learn where emails should be stored and can adapt when things change.

Another useful feature is with a single click you can change an email from HTML to Text. This is so useful when you receive an email and are not sure where the weblink is trying to take you. By click on the HTML2TEXT button you are able to see the full web link. Very useful.

I have just shared two of the features of Simply File. Here is a list of features from the site

  • Files messages to the right Outlook folder with one click of a mouse.
  • Uses an advanced algorithm to learn and adapt to your filing habits.
  • No configuration wizards, no manual setup, no rules to maintain. It just works!
  • Works on sent and received messages.
  • Removes Outlook’s “New Mail” icon when filing a message
    (small things like that make a huge difference in usability).
  • Saves sent messages in any Outlook folder, including Public Folders.
  • Turn messages into Tasks and Appointments with one click of a mouse.
  • Easily convert HTML messages to plain text format.
  • Highly optimized for speed and size (Download is only 560KB).

You can download the software as a free 30 day trial to see what you think.

Pricing is as follows

£20.45/€25.70/$39.95

Sending Emails with large attachments


It can be a real problem trying to send emails with large attachments as some corporates block files that are bigger than 4MB.

This is where yousendit comes in. Using the website you upload the file and list who you would like to send it to.

It is then kept in a secure area on the site and links to the file are sent to the people you requested.
