Demonstrating The Kopf Attachment Remover Add-In
Demonstrating how the Kopf attachment remover add-in works is easy using the following procedure.
1. Examine an email message with attachment.
Users should make sure that at least one email with an attachment is located in the Outlook Inbox. For this example, the email has a single 34 KB attachment.
2. Check beginning outlook data file size
Before running the Kopf add-in for email attachments, users should look at the size of the Outlook data file in question. To do this, they right click on the email account listed in the left hand pane in Outlook and then choose "Data File Properties."
In the "Properties" window, clicking on the "Folder Size" button will reveal the starting size of the Outlook email store.
A small data file is found in this example because the inbox has only one email with just one attachment.
The folder size in this test account is just 40 KB, but most active Outlook data files are much larger.
2. Run the automatic attachment extractor
Users should click the "Add-Ins" tab on the Outlook menu and then click the "Attachment Remover" button. Next they should follow the instructions from the previous section of this guide to choose their email separation settings (For most users, no changes are necessary) and then click "OK."
3. Examine results
If the tool worked to automatically separate an attachment from Outlook email, a file will be in the Kopf destination folder. Users can verify this using Windows Explorer.
If users inspect the size of their Outlook data file, they should see that it is smaller than before because all email attachments have moved from Outlook data file into the Kopf destination folder. This example shows that the data file is now 11 KB, confirming that the attachment no longer resides inside the data file.
