Changelog

Version 6.1 – build 21341                 –              September 2020:

Necessary update that includes improvements for security and performance.

  • Improved .pfd export performance
  • Added ability to enable trace logging via registry



Version 6.0 – build 20945                –              August 2020:

Major release with a lot of improvements on speed, handling other applications but most importantly we added a number of export settings.
Where in previous verions you could only drag a .msg file out of Outlook, now you can set the preferred file type.
Options are:

  • .msg (default)
  • .eml
  • .txt (images and attachments are omitted)
  • .rtf
  • .html
  • .pdf

Each of those output types can be combined with the option to extract the attachments and add them as additional files to your drag action (so if you drag an email with 2 attachments, 3 files will be presented to your target application).
If you do not want the separate files you can choose to zip them and one zip file that will contain your chosen output and optionally with the attachments is created.

Other improvements:

  • Performance optimization
  • Settings and licensing is accessible from the DragDrop button in the ribbon (Outlook top menu)
  • The ribbon button can be hidden by an Administrator (registry setting)
  • The default or standard DragDrop format can be set by an Administrator (registry setting)
  • Licensing activation for single license is done within the DragDrop for Outlook settings windo
