What does file types management entail?

Modified on Fri, 16 Jun 2023 at 10:28 AM

Automatic Email Manager performs various actions with email attachments, such as printing, saving to disk, merging with the email body, and sending via email, among others. However, in today's digital landscape, it is crucial to exercise caution when processing attachments due to the prevalence of viruses and ransomware.

To address this concern, Automatic Email Manager provides file type authorization. By default, the software includes a list of trusted file extensions and a list of forbidden files. You have the flexibility to add new extensions, disable or enable them as needed.

Please note that the file types management can be accessed by clicking on the 'Settings' option in the left menu, followed by the 'Email attachment' section.

List of file types available by default.

When Automatic Email Manager encounters a new attachment type that is unfamiliar, it refrains from processing it. Instead, the attachment is added to a list of new file types, and you are notified within the program to seek your confirmation.

Choose to use internal or external program to print attachments

When editing a file extension, you specify:

- The file extension itself (without including a dot, such as "xls").

- The printing process type:

  • Use internal system: if the extension is managed directly by Automatic Email Manager (like pdf, eml, word, …)
  • Use default application: It will utilize the installed application associated with the file type (for example 3d studio for a dxf file).
  • Use specific application:  It will employ a designated application for printing using command line arguments.

This functionality is highly significant in Automatic Email Manager as it enables you to enhance your email productivity within a secure environment.
