Why ArtfulBits Email as Attachment?

Out-of-the-box SharePoint offers only sending link to a file. With Email as Attachment it is not necessary to download files to the local disk in order to send out. Just select target documents from document Library and click "Send as Attachment" button in ribbon. Outlook’s New Mail form will be opened automatically with these documents attached. Sending lots of attached documents may be inconvenient in certain cases, so ArtfulBits Email as Attachment provides a possibility to compress those into a single archive and send. Just click “Send as Archive” button. It is also possible to download compressed documents without sending by clicking “Download as Archive” button.

Preparation for Installation

Before installation, please, check that your target server meets Email As Attachment system requirements.

1. Installation

Download Email As Attachment installation package from ArtfulBits website, unpack the file, and run Setup.exe:

Note:

You must be a SharePoint Farm Administrator for successful installation. Also "Windows SharePoint Administration" and "Windows SharePoint Timer" should be running on the server:

SharePoint 2007 SharePoint 2010

After system check is finished, click "Next".

After reading License Agreement, click "Accept" and go to next step.

Select one or more web applications and click "Next".

2. License Management
