Windows only: Microsoft Outlook add-in SaveAllAttachments does just what its name implies; it saves all the attachments from selected messages to a folder of your choosing, optionally deleting them from the message.
Once you’ve installed SaveAllAttachments and restarted Outlook, you can use the add-in by simply selecting some messages and clicking the button. You’ll be prompted for a folder, asked if you want to delete the original attachments, and the files will be swiftly saved into a folder—a very useful solution for quickly reducing the size of your PST file.
SaveAllAttachments is a free download, Windows and Outlook 2007 only. For another solution that lets you search through attachments before saving them, check out previously mentioned OutlookAttachView. While you’re beefing up Outlook, take a look through our top 10 Outlook boosters.
