Wishlist Native solution to detach attachments but keep a link to them

AFAIK only 3rd party tools can:

- detach attachments
- save them into a user defined folder
and
- keep a link to those attachments in the mailheader (under attachments) so that the attachments can be re-instated if needed

My wish is that there would be a native solution for this.

I believe this is not (yet) available within Outlook.

I have discovered there is a macro that can be of great help(?) - details can be found on
Save and Rename Outlook Email Attachments

I have quite a number of attachments that are identically named from several people in emails sent on several days.

Is there a way to change the macro to the effect that the attachment reads:
sendername-date-filename
i.e.
SomeName-27102017-SomeFileName.pdf

without.. removing the file from the email.

Thanks

p.s. should I post the above in another forum section?
