"We purchased AttachZIP for 4500 users across 8 Notes domains, which saved us significant disk space and bandwidth in our RHEL Domino 9 environment by compressing attachments and optimizing the image. AttachZIP works great for all of our end users, including Notes 9/8.5 Standard, Notes 9/8.5 Basic, and iNotes 9/8.5 (IE, Firefox, Chrome, Safari) including 32/64-bit Windows and Mac desktops We centrally control Zip activation by including/excluding file type and maximum size of attachments to specific DD groups. We also configured AttachZIP on the server side to handle attachments that external email senders send to internal users."

"We purchased AttachZIP because our Lotus Domino 8 email server was running out of disk space. Our Domino administrator configured it to convert attachments to ZIP format in emails older than 1 year. We use it on 50 of our largest mailboxes on an ad hoc basis. We haven't yet explored the end-user or scheduling functionality, but they saved us in emergency situations where we needed to reclaim disk space. After running AttachZIP, we issued the Domino Server console command "Load Compact - B' to see the current operating system level disk space savings."
- Erik Ricalde, Desktop Support Manager,
Travel Exchange Ltd

"AttachZIP saved our Lotus Domino 6.5 mail server that was critically low on disk space. We configured AttachZIP to handle 200 of our large mailboxes in a local mailbox replica. When a Notes 6.5 user sends an email, it is automatically converted to ZIP format. We scheduled AttachZIP to run on weekends and archive attachments in emails older than X days. The attachments have been (1) replaced with the original Notes document link, (2) converted to ZIP- format and then (3) moved to the Lotus Notes database archive data on another hard drive. The original header (summary) and body of the email remain in the user's mailbox. We also want to mention that IVE Technologies has excellent technical provided support to help us implement the solution quickly."
