Do you spend a lot of time renaming attachments from fax services or automated scanning systems? Now you can automatically rename attachments in Outlook (in place) when sending or receiving emails.

Automatically rename email attachments as they arrive at your inbox without you having to do anything, or on demand with the toolbar button. Easily rename just your most important Microsoft® Outlook® email attachments with our built in filter. Save time when dealing with faxes, scans, or other automated systems.

What’s the difference between this add-in and your Attachment Save add-in?

While the Attachment Save Outlook add-in will rename attachments, it removes the attachments from the email (replacing it with a URL link). But this Outlook Rename Attachments add-in leaves the attachments in place, only changing the name of the attachment

“I work in Accounting/Admin and this add-in is very helpful for me!  Our copier sends scanned versions of documents to our email, which is great, but they always arrive with just a generic number without any identifier (ie “0251_01”). I don’t necessarily need to download and save the copies on my hard drive, but it’s helpful to name the file within the email of what the file is.”

– Jaimi Chapp

Because it also works on outgoing email, you can be sure that your attachment names all make sense. Add it to your cart by selecting the "Add To Cart" button above.
