Reduce the size of your Outlook folder files (PST file), making them smaller, easier to backup, and making Outlook faster and more reliable.

DetachPipe manages your email attachments by automatically (or manually) detaching attachments and saving them to disk, while leaving a clickable link in the email in their place. Attachments can be compressed to save space, and identical attachments can be merged to a single copy. What's new in this version? 

How do I use it?

  1. You'll find DetachPipe's ribbon at the top of the Outlook window, and other places.
  2. Select the email or group of emails you want to process
  3. Click the appropriate button in the Ribbon.

Instant Detach - saves attachments to disk with no prompting - using the Manual settings

Detach... - saves attachments to disk and leaves a clickable link in the email (you can restore the attachment later if needed)

Save to disk - saves attachments to disk (the email is left unchanged)

Delete - deletes attachments

Restore - reattaches any detached files

Compress - compresses attachments, making them smaller

Decompress - uncompresses attachments, restoring them to their original size

Unlink - converts DetachPipe links to normal links so deleting the email does not delete the attachment at the same time

Folders... - lets you select a group of folders for processing
