Attachment Manager version 2.03.01
Attachment Manager is a free utility to help users of electronic mail systems other than OfficePower, particularly if you are likely to receive messages from OfficePower users. It provides on the PC a subset of the Autorecognition facility provided by OfficePower/Xtra by integrating with your mail client to recognise files attached to mail messages where the client does not know the name of the file. Attachment Manager will identify the correct file extension for the "unknown" file, and help you start up the appropriate "tool" or application to handle this type of file.
Attachment Manager also integrates with Windows Explorer and File Manager and can be used to identify "unknown" files held on your PC after being copied from disk, or received by any other means.
Should a file submitted to Attachment Manager prove to be an OfficePower object, such as an OfficePower Word document, or an OfficePower datafile, Attachment Manager will invoke one of the Viewer utilities included in OfficePower for Windows, if the latter product is also installed on your PC. It is particularly effective for off-line users of OfficePower Archive.
A User Guide is available for Attachment Manager. This is included in the full download (below) or you can view the user guide now.
