Many applications these days (such as Microsoft Word and Adobe Reader) contain options that allow you to attach files to emails. However, these options do not cater for the webmail clients, such as Gmail and Yahoo! Mail that many home users work with.
As so much of the market centers on these webmail clients, it makes sense for a program to come along that makes attaching files to emails in webmail clients easier. This is where the free email attachment manager Affixa comes in.
A Shopping Basket Attachment System
The innovative free email attachment manager uses a system for attaching files that is very similar to the “shopping basket” system that can be found on many ecommerce and shopping websites.
It is very simple. All you need to do is add the files that you wish to attach into a shopping basket and then, when you have finished gathering files, you just “checkout” and this adds the files to your email. It is all that easy.
Even better, Affixa allows the user to create multiple attachment baskets, meaning that a variety of different emails can be managed by the free email attachment manager at the same time. This system works very well and is an innovative and user-friendly method of attaching files to emails.
Here are some of the features of Affixa:
- Gmail and Yahoo! Mail integration.
- Handles “mailto” links.
- Single account usage.
- Attachment baskets.
- Support for desktop email clients.
- Automatic detection of problematic attachments.
- Custom names for account identification.
- Drop.io integration.
All in all, Affixa is a decent free email attachment manager with a fair amount of features to make life easier for users. However, it seems that the software might work better if it expanded to cover more aspects of email and become more of a multi-purpose tool for managing email.
Perhaps it may be better for users to consider something like that, instead of something that is as specialized as Affixa.
