    I have been pulling my hair apart because of the stupid inline images. I work for an advertising agency and i need to email a lot of jpegs as attachment every day ( my Mail folder is about 70+ GB) and since i switched to OSX i have been going crazy about this issue. I tried all the tricks which are floating all over the web for last few months but somehow i stumbled onto your page today. It works like a charm. I am using OSX 10.10.2 with mail 8.2.
    One question ; i have an update available for 10.10.3 via beta testing. Will the plugin still work or will i have to wait for an update from your side.

    I tried all the other plugins, like AttachmentTamer and so on, nothing worked.

    I am amazed by your genius, thanks a lot.

    Hi Boet,

    You Legend man, your plugin works like a bomb.

    I have a question though. With apple script, can you create a rule that will to the same for incoming emails. They must show as icons and not preview. This story that you have to click on it as select "show as icon" is sommer rubbish.

    Greetings and thank you's all round from Ireland. Nice one Clive... thanks for taking the time out to develop this simple solution... no bells and whistles... just a solution that works!! Will you be supporting this for updates of OSX Yosemite...? Just in case Apple plays a few new tricks with future updates... ?

    Thanks again!! :)

    @AnthonyMcCarthy Thanks! I'll definitely support OS X updates 'cos I wanna keep 'em attached :P I also use Mail app and want this to work.

    @Cheryl The issue you describe is not addressed with this plugin, however I'll try to implement "force icon view" for Mail attachment auto preview.

    @Sarel Thanks :) Unfortunately no. I'll try to implement some anti-annoying-auto-preview solution :)

    @Rachel @Taky1974 @Tim and others THANKS a bunch, I'm glad this is helping you!

    Thanks for this! Very neat. It does seem to be working for me, so far.

    However, I've noticed that on Gmail none of the messages sent with this are displaying an attachment icon (paperclip). The attachments are working fine otherwise, but it is a bit odd not to have that indication on the emails.

    What do you think could be causing this?

  • Comment by Stephan on 24 February 2015 9:14 pm

    how do I know the plugin is active (successfully loaded)?
    Is there a new toolbar icon or any other symtom?
    I wrote
    defaults write DisableInlineAttachmentViewing -bool yes
    so the images show as icons in the composing window (on my Mac).
    How can I be sure they will be displayed correctly by bloody Outlook?
    Thank you!

  • Comment by Clive on 18 February 2015 10:34 pm

    @gondo try typing this at the terminal:

    defaults write EnableBundles -bool YES

  • Comment by sebastien on 13 March 2015 3:07 pm

    applied your anti inline yosemite 10.10.2 mail 8.2 - worked - but how to revert back to normal if we wish pls?

  • Comment by Tom on 5 March 2015 10:29 am

    Thank you for this - works like a dream!

    The only problem is that now my email signature (which has an image) now doesn't come out properly as the image is sent as an attachment!!

    Is there any way around this? or is it literally all (including email signatures) or nothing?


  • Comment by Jane on 27 March 2015 1:28 pm

    Thank you, it works, I'm so happy!

  • Comment by Scott Rod on 11 April 2015 12:17 am

    This is almost perfect, but I think it might need the proper mime type so email clients can properly identify attachments in messages. For example, try sending a message from Mail to someone who logs into Typically, there is a paperclip icon next to the message to easily a identify and provides the ability to filter messages with attachments. The same is true for Airmail v2 and probably other email clients.

    Do we know whether the plugin works happily on 10.10.3? Or should I wait for an update, before attempting to install it?

  • Comment by Clive on 18 February 2015 10:43 pm

    @Esteban try typing this at the terminal:

    defaults write EnableBundles -bool YES

  • Comment by Peter Gallay on 24 April 2015 6:27 pm

    Hello and thanks for the great 10.2.2 plug-in. Is there any reason to delete previous versions -- and if so, how is it done? (My PayPal donation is on its way.)
    Thanks again.

  • Comment by Heikki on 7 May 2015 9:34 am

    Thank you for this !!!!!! Works perfect!!!

    I closed mail, installed and restarted. All test mails to my windows buddies went through correctly.

    I have Yosemite 10.10.3

    You've solved my permanent headache with Apple mail, you should charge for this app.
    Running 10.10.3 on an elderly 2009 iMac perfectly.

    It'd be handy to be able to see the app on a tab in Mails preferences.


  • Comment by Andrew on 20 May 2015 4:09 pm

    Could have been this easy? Works like a charm, thank you SO much!

  • Comment by Javier on 15 September 2015 7:57 pm

    Thanks for work!

    I tried various apps and they didn't work.

    Yours is simple and easy!! I will purchase a license.

    Thanks again.

  • Comment by Rick on 16 February 2016 6:03 pm

    This is great but it makes the images in my email signatures turn into icons! Is there a way round it?

    Clive: Yes! Sure thing, just follow the steps at the plugin page (under signatures). Thanks!

  • Comment by Clive on 13 April 2015 12:32 pm


    Maybe I could add an option to skip attaching of the last image, I'll think about this.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Comment by Clive on 13 April 2015 12:06 pm

    @Chris there was no Mail app update in OS X 10.10.3 so the plugin should work

  • Comment by Clive on 13 April 2015 12:26 pm


    1. how do I know the plugin is active (successfully loaded)? Is there a new toolbar icon or any other symtom?

    I guess I could add some sort of notification somewhere, thanks.
    Until then you can run Console and type into filter "CGMailPlugin". Start Mail app and see if something shows.

    2. How can I be sure they will be displayed correctly by bloody Outlook?

    You can make a test :) Try sending to gmail account.
