Automated Printing of Email Messages and its Attachments

MsgExtract's Printer Action allows you to print large amounts of email messages and its attachments, maintaining  a correlative order. You can send email from any supported email source.

The Printer Action prints first the email message and optionally if it has attachments, it prints them as well.  It uses the Windows shell to find a program that can print the attachment's extension. 

We have updated the Printer Action to print attachments with the following features:

  • It can print now image formats like PNG, JPG, BMP without using an external program.
  • It can print Word and Excel files using OLE automation therefore not needing an external program other than Office itself.

 

How does it work?

You can send email from email sources, like Gmail or Outlook to the printer and select which labels and folders will be printed. To fine tune the selection use filters.

You can use the MailExplorer program to print only selected messages.

 

The Printer maintains a correlative order

The Printer action can print email messages and its attachments, maintaining a correlative order. It waits for the print job to finish before sending a new email or attachment to the printer.

  1. Email 1
    1. Attachment1
    2. Attachment2
    3. ..
  2. Email 2
    1. Attachment 1
    2. Attachment2
    3. ..
  3. ..

 

How are the attachments printed?

The Printer action uses the Windows shell to find a program that can print the attachments. The following options are available for the attachments

  • Print Images - Image formats (PNG, JPG, GIF, TIF, BMP and others) will be printed when this option is selected.
  • Print Word and Excel files - When this option is selected, Word  and Excel files will be printed using OLE automation. You need to have office installed.
  • Print other formats using their shell association - When this option is selected, MsgExtract will search for a program that can print the attachment filename extension, using the Windows shell entries. You should use this option to print PDF files.
  • Print compressed attachments - Attachments that are compressed as ZIP files will be first uncompressed before printing them using the options above.

MsgExtract Version 2.7 Released

We have released version 2.7 with the following features:

New Bounced Email Filter

The Bounced Email Filter allows you to process or discard messages based in its bounce status (Soft Bounce, Hard Bounce, Not Bounced) using a True or False condition. It allows you to also export to Excel or to a comma delimited format the bounce type, the bounce description and the final recipient.

If you send a regular newsletter or email to a group of people regularly, this will help you to know which email addresses have bounced and the reason.

1. Can detect Hard Bounces and Soft Bounces 

2. It supports conditional branching based in the Bounce Status (True, False)

3.  the following fields can be exported to Excel, CSV, XML:

  • Bounce type.
  • Bounce description
  • Final recipient.

New Attachments Filter

You can use the Attachments Filter to remove attachments from email messages based on their filename. It supports wild cards.

The attachments will be removed if they match the filter defined filenames and are passed to the child actions without them. 

How can you use it?

You can use the Attachments Filter when you want to remove a signature or another type of unwanted attachment or image from the target format.

For instance when batch printing messages you might want to remove the business logo so that it will not be printed. Or if you are generating a PDF and you don’t want some images included.


New Printer Target

We have enhanced the Printer Target by adding control of the printer spooler. it can print now the email message's attachments as well. 

The Printer Target Action monitors the printer spooler when printing jobs and waits for the message and attachments to be printed before sending a new job. This allows us to maintain the order of the emails being printed and its attachments:

Email 1 attachment 1 attachment 2 …
Email 2 attachment 1 attachment 2 …

The attachments can be optionally uncompressed if they are zipped and printed as well.
