What is new in MessageSave v7¶
Welcome to MessageSave v7. This document outlines new features and enhancements which make the product you have come to rely on for saving, archiving, backing up and processing Outlook email messages even more powerful.
Support for Outlook 2019¶
Version 7 now officially supports Outlook 2019. Office 365 is also fully supported with the desktop version of Outlook.
Discontinued support for Outlook 2007¶
Outlook 2007 is no longer supported.
Include Attachments Inline In PDF¶
Version 6 had an option to attach message attachments to PDF file as attachments in their original format. Version 7 also supports including email attachments as extra pages at the end of the PDF. The following attachment types are supported: docx, doc, rtf, txt, xlsx, xls, pdf, jpg, png, gif. (Requires the Pro edition).
Saving Attachments As Separate Files¶
Up until now, MessageSave would always save the entire message, including any attachments in the same file. This version introduces an option to also save attachments as separate files. (Requires the Ultimate edition).
New File Explorer Columns¶
Version 7 supports the following additional File Explorer columns when saving MSG files - Date Received, Date Sent, Priority.
New File Naming Template Fields¶
The following new File Naming Template fields are supported:
M_SUBJF200- first 200 characters of the email subject. (The existing token
M_SUBJuses first 80 characters).
M_CS1- message categories.
M_TS_MMMM- month full name or name abbreviation. For example, “January” or “Jan”.
New Template Field Modifier¶
We have added a new template field modifier - “RS”. It removes spaces from the corresponding field. For example:
%M_SUBJ[RS]%- removes spaces from the subject.
%M_SUBJ[RS_]%- replaces spaces with underscores.
Window position and size¶
Previous versions of MessageSave would always position windows, like Save Messages, in the middle of its parent window. In v7, if you move a MessageSave window, the new position will be remembered for the future. Next time you open the same window, it will be displayed in the same position.
Improved support for different monitor resolutions¶
The window position and size logic, described above, works correctly even if you move between environments with different monitor resolutions or different number of monitors.
An ability to hide UI commands¶
The Ultimate edition now allows system administrators to hide some commands, such as “Check for Updates” or “Advanced Options”, for their deployment. (Requires the Ultimate edition. Controlled via ADMX template).
Force Save and Send¶
A new option to disable “Send Only” in the “Save and Send” window, to force users save all sent messages. (Requires the Ultimate edition. Controlled via ADMX template).
Cleanup Mapped Folders¶
New Mapped Folders Cleanup commands simplify keeping your folder mappings up to date.
- By popular demand, we have added the do not auto create folders option.
- The Mapped Folders window is now resizable.
- An option to not remember the last used custom field value. At this time, it can only be enabled via the registry. If you require this feature, ask us for instructions.
- Numerous enhancements and bug fixes.
License management portal¶
Over the last several years, we have received feedback from many of you that you would like us to improve license management and administration. We are introducing a license management portal where you can keep track of your license usage and deactivate installation when you need to move a license to another computer. When creating an account, use the same email address you used when you placed an order.
Subscription licensing model¶
Starting with version 7, we are switching to a subscription licensing model.
What else would you like to see?¶
Many of the new features and improvements are based on your suggestions. If you have ideas on how else we can make MessageSave even more useful to you, we would love to hear from you!
