ResumePipe is here,
and has many new time-saving features to
help you work smarter. ResumePipe rescues you from endless
pointing and clicking on emails and attachments - and it saves you time by

Fixed memory leak which caused MAPI out of memory errors after

What's New in v2.7.1
Fixed /Q command line switch not working.
ResumePipe now uses a single MAPI session, which prevents errors

of its use in the manual handling filename. Unknown macros are

The "Information store" panel has now been removed.
All strings are now available for translation to other
Now handles emails with very large body text.
Now handles HTML-only emails. These are emails where the sender
provides no plain-text equivalent of the HTML body (a poor
choice, not often used). In these situations, ResumePipe passes
the HTML text straight through to the output text file. The
resulting file may need to have TextPipe Pro's 'Remove HTML'
filter applied to it.
Unrecognized macros in the email/attachment header or footer,
starting with %... are now flagged with an error message in the
What's New in v2.5
Now uses Extended MAPI - much faster, and better compatibility
with Lotus Notes and other MAPI clients.
MS Word now opens attachments in Read-Only mode - this prevents
a password dialog appearing in the case of a password-protected
document, and results in far less manual intervention required.
Double-clicking on an Exception document in the Exception tab of
the Status form will display the document for manual handling.
New MAPI client login options.
New options dialog to set the display language.
When processed emails were moved to a new folder, Outlook used

tag text in the Subject line.

Short cuts keys are now included on the tabs for easy navigation
Fixed email header handling for Lotus Notes non-compliance with
standard email - now blank emails should be a thing of the past.
