    Nice job, man. Solved the problem for me at work. No more Windows users coming to my door to complain that weird stuff is happening with the attachments I send them. Thank you.

    Thanks. I will store this away. At the moment, in Mail > Edit > Attachments > "Always send attachments at end of message." is solving this annoying problem to satisfy my daughter on Windows sufficiently to keep her quiet! So I won't disturb things at the moment. However, if I need it, I will have a quick solution. You would think that Apple could have done this before Mavericks was launched, but that requires a good attitude to customers. Many thanks.

    Hi Clive. I'm running 10.10.1 and have installed the latest version of the plugin, but it doesn't seem to work for me. I've installed and restarted Mail, even tried rebooting. I've tried dragging and dropping and using the attach icon and the images still appear inline. Any suggestions?

    Thank you so much, I've just updated to a new Mac with Yosemite and was using Attachment Tamer for years which now doesn't work in Yosemite! You should advertise this on all the forums where users are complaining about this problem, you could sell it, I would pay for it!

    This seems to be the answer I was looking for regarding the annoying inline images.
    One question though from an Apple newbie before installing your solution: suppose I wish to turn back the situation and I would like to see the inline images again in Mail, how can this be done?

    Many thanks for your answer!

    @DanHolmes the images may or may not appear inlined in the email you are composing, that is a Mail app feature - auto preview of images and PDF documents with one page, and such things (also annoying). This plugin doesn't address that problem. The plugin ensures that the images you send don't inline to your recipients. Read more in the original post - Thanks!

    @LucCeulemans and others thanks for your feedback.

    Also to uninstall the plugin follow this two quick and easy steps.

    1. in Finder go to ~/Library/Mail/Bundles/
    (mind the tilde sign ~)
    You can use Finder -> Go -> Go To Folder and paste the above mentioned path there.

    2. delete CG's Anti Inline.mailbundle

    Hi Clive, hows about an update for Mail 8.2?

    Thanks for the tip, Clive. adding the UUID worked like a charm.

    Hey Clive,

    This is really great! I just wanted to thank you for putting this together. It's really helping move stuff around my office. If you continue to update, you should consider charging a nominal fee for the license. It's absolutely worth it!

    @Stuart, @Jeffrey try the update! Thanks!

    Great job Clive! Works like a charm.

    Is there a way to disable this once it has been installed?


    A: Sure, just go to Mail -> Preferences -> Anti Inline and disable the plugin

    Great job, really appreciate your making this available! Saves me grief sending images to Windows users!

    THANKS a lot Clive !

    Working as expected on Yosemite 10.10.3 and Mail 8.2.

    Worked like a charm! This was a huge issue w/clients. Problem solved! Thanks Clive!!

  • Comment by Vladimir on 15 March 2016 9:07 am

    Exactly what I looked for. Works like a charm! Thank you Clive!

    @Scott Rod, awesome, thanks for your feedback.

    I'll try to work something out about that. No promises though, the Mail app "plugin system" is a big hack itself.

    Thanks again.
