Outlook Addin for Efficient Attachment Saving

Client Description

Jerome initially approached with a requirement for an Outlook macro to simplify the saving of multiple daily email attachments to certain locations. Recognizing a better approach, I proposed a shift from a traditional macro to a VSTO Addin developed in C#.

Project Highlights


Develop a VSTO Addin for Outlook to expedite and streamline the process of saving email attachments to specified directories.

Key Features

  • User Interaction: Users can easily open an incoming email, select an attachment, and activate the Addin.
  • Customizable Form: Upon Addin activation, a user-friendly form appears, prompting for:
    Prefix String
  • Filename (defaulted to the chosen attachment's name)
  • Destination Folder (Selectable through a dropdown list or a file explorer interface)
  • Automated File Saving: Based on the provided inputs, the Addin seamlessly saves the attachment in the selected location with the designated name.

Technologies Used

  • C#: The primary language for developing the VSTO Addin, offering robustness and flexibility.
  • VSTO: Used to integrate the Addin into the Outlook environment, allowing for intuitive and seamless user experience.

Client's Feedback

"Dejan delivered on time and went a long way to accompany us afterwards."

My Feedback

"Working with Jerome was a valuable experience. He was initially inclined towards a macro solution, but he trusted my recommendation for a VSTO Addin. His open-mindedness and constructive feedback played a pivotal role in the success of this project. Highly recommended client."
