Filemailer simplifies email file transfers

updated 05:30 am EDT, Sun September 21, 2008

Filemailer transfer app

Altomac has launched Filemailer for the Mac, a utility that simplifies the task of transferring files via email. The software allows a user to quickly move data files - such as PDFs, images, and documents - without needing to open an email program and compose an email for the sole purpose of sending a file. Filemailer sends the file to the receiving party's email address. It also avoids build-up of sent attachments, as it does not retain files after sending them, as email programs usually do.

Filemailer is a freeware program, requiring Mac OS X 10.4 or above. The Pro version of Filemailer adds more control over the body of the text of emails sent, and can handle multiple accounts. The Pro version is $25 for a single license, $35 for a family license (up to five Macs) and $180 for a company license (up to 30 Macs).

    Anyone care to bet on how long it takes Filemaker to bring some legal pressure to bear?

    There're already email addons for Filemaker (we've used AutoSender for years). Why would FM "bring some legal pressure to bear?"

    I can see the freeware one, but the Pro version seems to turn it into a rudimentary email client? At that point, just use the email or why not use iChat and you can get around attachment size limitations of most people's email accounts?

    The Pro version should come with a server to mediate the transfers to get around email limitations.

    This software is trading on the good market reputation of FileMaker by using a confusingly similar name for their one-trick product.

    Ever wonder why Rendezvous had to become Bonjour?

    The issue isn't that you can't eMail from within FileMaker at all -- no idea where that thought came from.
