MAK Outlook Tools
MAK Outlook Tools for Microsoft Outlook (2010 to 2019) for the desktop was created because we couldn’t find some functionality we really wanted/needed in any other addins.
There are two main features and a little extra one.
Recipient Privacy Protector (To/Cc Protector)
How many times have you seen an e-mail that was clearly sent to a list – and very clearly because there were dozens of recipients in the To/Cc fields.
You may have seen competitors’ e-mail addresses or someone who may be a prospect or a client. But definitely addresses you were not supposed to see.
This is not just an embarrassment for the sender, but also a data breach. And with new privacy laws like GDPR this can become a real legal problem as well.
Of course you know better and use the Bcc field when sending to larger amounts of people that shouldn’t see each other. But did it happen to you that you accidentally put the list in the Cc instead of Bcc field? Or are you afraid that it may happen and the problems it can bring?
There should be a way to avoid accidentally sending a message to multiple recipients in the To or Cc fields instead of Bcc.
That’s why we have developed this feature. We don’t want to be scared any more.
You can set starting at how many people in the To/Cc fields you should be warned when you try to send the e-mail. This allows you to fine-tune it so it doesn’t bother you on your regular e-mail processes but catches the problematic cases.
So if you accidentally use the wrong field you have the chance to abort the sending and fix it up.
Oh – and it does support checking in contact groups/distribution lists.
Add Attachments (to Received E-Mails)
Attach files to received e-mails in Outlook. Why? To stay organized… this tool saves you tons of time!
Take these common scenarios for example that any business is familiar with:
You have just received an invoice or statement e-mail which tells you to follow a link and log into the company’s website to view their invoice. And if you want to keep it in a digital format for your files you have to find a spot to save it to where you can find it again later. There is a simpler (and more organized) way! What if you could just keep it in Outlook where you store and file lots of information anyway? With our “Add Attachments” Outlook tool you can now attach a PDF file to the received e-mail and it’s right there in Outlook – being accessible and indexed just the way it would be if the PDF would have been attached to the e-mail you received.
Someone sent you an invoice and you followed a link to pay it? Now you can take this online receipt and attach the PDF to the same e-mail as the invoice. All neatly in one place.
A contract you pick up online? Attach it to the e-mail.
You want to make some notes to keep with the e-mail? Write it up in Notepad or your Word processor and attach it.
Anything you can attach to an outgoing e-mail can now be attached with our “Add Attachment” Outlook tool to a received email for future reference.
And last and definitely least: Paste Plain Text (Button)
Yes, it is least. You can paste plain text out of the clipboard by clicking on the arrow underneath the “Paste” button in the ribbon and click the “Keep Text Only” already, but if you do it a lot that extra button can come in handy.
Just a little extra here.
