Review attachments after they are added to new email
Idea shared by Karl Jones - February 19, 2016 at 6:36 PM
Planned
I am acting as Consultant and administrator for several non profit clients who, at my recommendation, use the 10 user version and one client who has just purchased the enterprise version with activesync. They have many questions about certain features they were able to use with Outlook.
I am going to create a different thread for each one and will repeat this intro for each one.

In outlook the users are able to add an attachment which they can then click on to open and review before finally sending. As they have many version of certain documents they always review before they send. is it possible to do this with smartermail or can it be made an available feature.?

Hey Karl,
 
At this time it's not possible to review an attachment once it's been appended to an email message, aside from verifying the file name in the list of attachments. 
 
I can see the value in adding this functionality. When you receive an email message, you can click on the image thumbnail to preview it before downloading, and I can see how it would be beneficial to click on image you've just uploaded to ensure it's the correct one. I'll change this thread to a Proposed Idea to facilitate tracking on this request. Other users can vote up the thread and add their input on its implementation. While this does not guarantee the functionality will be added, it does get it in front of our developers so they can see its popularity and usefulness. 
 
Thank you!

Thank you Andrea.
I look forward to other users agreeing that this might be a useful feature and voting accordingly.

Wanted to bump this as there are a number of clients who want this implemented as soon as possible.

I wanted to bump this now that 16 has been released, i see the feature is not currently enabled. Are there plans to do so..??

I'm adding to my own thread but the reason is that i'm about to lose a customer to the smartermail interface because they can't do pdf attachment review to make sure the right pdf is attached before they send it, neither can they optimise images before sending and they also decided they don't like the new interface.
So i'm about to go through all the users and install and setup outlook 2010 unless i can attend to the issues that the users are reporting and right now and how it has been under V15 was "sorry, it's not able to do that yet"

Hi Karl,
 
I unfortunately have no updates on this functionality at the moment. I'll keep you posted as I hear more!

All,
 
I know this is a feature request from awhile ago, so I wanted to provide some follow up. We've slated this for addition to SmarterMail 17.x. As of now, there are a lot of other features to implement -- or re-implement -- in 16.x. So I'm going to change the status of this to "Planned" as it IS coming.

Although I love seeing you have a roadmap for beyond 16 I truly think core functionality should be in the system now. I say that being that we jumped onboard as this is an Exchange replacement and not part of a replacement. At a minimum we should have the core functionality of what we would get with Exchange. I propose that rather than jumping from 16.1 or 16.2 to 17 we take 1-year and lock down 16.x so that it rocks compared to Exchange in performance and price. A higher number means nothing to any of our users. What matters is the performance, price, and being on-par with our competitors (e.g. Outlook 365 and gmail as the primary ones).
