One of the hardest things to find after a very busy day of exchanging e-mails is a file attachment in your inbox or sent folder. On the average, hunting for files in your e-mail can consume the better part of an hour that could have been spent on useful downtime or getting something else done.
The process of hunting down an attachment usually begins by clicking on the search field of your e-mail and typing either the name of the person who you think sent you the file or the subject header of the e-mail exchange you think it is in. It’s easy to find an attachment if it had been sent fairly recently, but when the file had been sent a hundred e-mails ago, that’s when people either decide to pore over every e-mail turned up in a search or just ask to be sent the file again. Either way, it can mean a waste of time for you or the person who is waiting for the file attachment.
Can you imagine asking an important client or major customer to wait fifteen minutes while you or your assistant goes searching for a file he sent you months ago? It’s can make for an embarrassing moment because it makes you appear disorganized and sloppy.
Attachements.me makes it easier to find any e-mail attachments in your e-mail account, no matter how long ago it had been sent or in what thread it had been sent in.
