Third party software to automatically compress Microsoft Outlook attachments.
Posted on 2010-09-07
I am looking for an application that will automatically compress attachments send via MS Outlook.
The enviroment is as follows:
Mail boxes are POP3 hosted by an ISP, so we do not have our own Exchange server.
ISP limits us to a 10 meg attachment limit.
Users Outlook mail boxes are mixed Outlook 2003/2007.
Users are very computer iliterate, they just "attach and send", so the process must be automated.
Majority of large files are either scanned Adobe or Tiff docs, movie or sound files (MP3 or WVA).
The company would be prepared to pay some decent money for a solution.
We have looked at straight forward zipping (WinZip) attachments, but have not found any significant size reduction.
Obviously any application that we do use cannot be so unique that external reciepients cannot open the attachment.
Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.
