FILEminimizer Office and FILEminimizer Suite offers an email add-in for Microsoft Outlook starting from Microsoft Outlook 2000. Once installed, this add-in detects if an optimizable file is attached to an outgoing email. As soon as the "Send" button is clicked, the FILEminimizer add-in intervenes and optimizes the office or image attachment on-the-fly before it is sent out. This reduces the increase in size for both the sender's and the receiver's email accounts and also secures the email communication of big office files.
On a corporate level, the global deployment of the FILEminimizer add-in for Microsoft Outlook to all email clients within an organization relieves the load on Microsoft Exchange servers, lowers the used bandwidth for email and secures the email communication of big office and image attachments.
The Microsoft Outlook add-in can be easily installed and deployed to all Microsoft Outlook users. It can be set to optimize all optimizable attachments automatically using the pre-configured compression setting. In this case the FILEminimizer add-in for Microsoft Outlook works silently and without any required interaction from the end-user. The add-in can also be set to perform the optimization of an attachment only upon confirmation from the end-user. In this case, after hitting the "Send" button, the optimization of the file must be confirmed by the end-user.
