Why use Attachment Processor add-in for Outlook attachments?
4 simple reasons from daily operations:

Save Outlook attachments to speed up Outlook Increase Outlook performance and speed up data search

Saving attached files on a disk (instead of saving in the Outlook database) significantly speeds up the program, especially if you receive large files often. You can also avoid saving duplicates in the Outlook database that arise when messages are forwarded. Additionally, independent file indexation by the search service on your computer or on the server greatly accelerates the process of finding them.

  Outlook attachments for handy teamwork Share data for strong teamwork

Saving attachments in a shared storage allows organized access to all involved users and avoids unnecessary and repeated resending among them. Importantly, the link to the file in the message is automatically replaced during sending of new messages, so the current version of the file is always used.

Protect Outlook attachment to enhance security Protect data better and enhance security

Automatic, password-protected archiving of sent attachments and automatic retrieval for the recipient makes unauthorized access to data impossible if, for instance, a message with an attachment is sent to a wrong address.

  Extract Outlook attachments and organize them Keep received attachments in the right way

You can catalog extracted and stored attached files in your file repository quickly and easily. The product allows you to set the name format of the storage folder and/or the file, and that name format will be automatically used when saving files. For example, "Invoices" -> "September 2014" -> "Invoice from supplier AAA.pdf" - is a clear and concise naming pattern.
