UK's NHS Connecting for Health Selects DetachPipe for E-mail Attachment Management

Melbourne, Australia - September 30, 2009 - DataMystic announces the UK's NHS Connecting for Health has selected DetachPipe to assist 350,000 NHSmail users manage their email attachments.

DetachPipe is an Add On integrated into Microsoft Outlook for one-click saving, compressing and deleting of attachments. A convenient hyperlink is left in each email and attachments can be saved with the original or a new name and saved in a folder structure based on several email variables (sender, subject, date etc).

Initially, 10,000 key NHS users had to urgently reduce their massive Outlook Mailbox/PST/OST file sizes before they were migrated to the new NHSmail platform. DetachPipe can be rapidly deployed because training is not required ? it leverages the familiar email workflow used every day.

DetachPipe can automatically save incoming attachments and re-attaches files if you forward the original email (just like normal). If you just reply to an email then the attachment links are removed. Outgoing attachments can be compressed or deleted (since you already have a copy). If you delete an email then the associated files are removed. Duplicate attachments are merged together ? saving even more space!

DetachPipe can easily save attachment(s) from one or multiple messages (or folders) with a mouse click. An AutoDetach feature can also run daily at a predetermined time to take care of new attachments.

DetachPipe also includes sharing of large attachments via an integrated online service.


The DetachPipe Add On for Microsoft Outlook can be downloaded from the company's website, The Lite version is US$19.95, Pro version US$29.95. The Lite version restriction is that it cannot detach to remote or network locations. Multi-user discounts and software bundles are available.

System Requirements

DetachPipe requires Microsoft Outlook 98, 2000, 2010, XP, 2003 or 2007. DetachPipe runs on Microsoft Windows 95, 98, ME, NT, 2000, XP, 2003 Server, Windows Vista and Vista 64 with 4 MB free disk space and 64 MB RAM. The download file is 3.6 MB.
