Below is a description of the “;Attachments”; and “;File Size”; groups of options in Outlook Export Wizard for when you want to filter email with attachment tập tin, extract attachments, and set size limits for the messages you extract from Outlook.
Why extract attachments and related e-mails from Outlook Personal Folders files?
It can be handy to extract attachments or messages with attachments from Outlook for the following reasons:
- để reduce PST file size;
- to sort your messages by “;email with attachment”; vs. “;email without attachment“;
- để save attachments và email with attachment files on a protected file server, and not in a standard mail database;
- to set up shared access to email with attachment tập tin (Ví dụ:, for company employees);
- để save attachments from your e-mail messages and safeguard them using a password-protected archive;
- to process messages with attachments: extract attachments, save attachments to your hard drive, hoặc delete
- file đính kèm associated with messages.
“;Attachments”; and “;File Size”; tùy chọn: filters to extract attachments và email with attachment files from Outlook
Để export attachments and messages with attachments, Outlook Export Wizard has a variety of options that you can view by clicking the “;Options”; button on the first page of the wizard. We will be looking at the “;Attachments”; and “;File Size”; cài đặt, which can be used as filters when you export attachments from Outlook Personal Folders files.
- Using the “;Attachments”; cài đặt, users can control the process for exporting attachment EML and MSG files (used to store attachments). Theo mặc định, “;Attachments”; is set to “;Export ALL eml files”;, extracting from Outlook all e-mail messages, with no exceptions. If you set this option to “;Skip e-mails containing attachments”;, the program will skip all Outlook file đính kèm during migration. The program will block emails containing email attachments; they will remain in the .pst file. The reverse is possible as well: to extract from Outlook file đính kèm and the messages containing them, và block emails which are purely text.
Please note that when using the “;Attachments”; tùy chọn, Outlook Export Wizard extracts not email attachments per se, but rather email with attachment tập tin, or the opposite, email without attachment tập tin. The current version of the program does not allow you to save attachments separately from the messages themselves.
- With the help of the “;File size”; tùy chọn, you can limit the size of messages that are exported. Theo mặc định, the filter is set to “;Unlimited”; meaning that there is no maximum file size for the files that are processed. If you set this option to “;Skip messages greater than (MB)”;, you should indicate a file size in megabytes: the program during export will block emails whose size exceeds the value you set here. The program will extract from Outlook e-mails whose size is less than this value, regardless of whether the e-mail has attached files.
