Deleting mail attachmentsIs there a way to delete an attachment from a received mail item (without deleting the item itself)? I always save attachments to an appropriate directory in the file system, so I have no need to keep a copy in the mail system - it just wastes space.
I tried Attachments - Documents and deleted the item but the whole item was deleted, not just the attachment. In fact, I don't see the point of the Attachments folder except to list mail that has an attachment.
I have lots of e-mails with pics attached. I save the pics to a directory, but I don't want to waste lots of disk space, and I don't want to lose the message that went with the pictures. It's ridiculous that we can't edit e-mails. I sometimes want to change the subject title of an e-mail as well, but nothing can be changed as far as I am aware.
I hope the option is added in the future.

Can you not select the file in the attachments area of the compose page and hit delete?
I also can't delete attachments before sending the email either.

I end up getting the same message with the same time stamps, etc... just 2MB less each!
I was looking for a way to do this without redirecting, but I guess there is no way. Weird! Oh well, redirecting is fine for now. For me, anyway.
(Edit: I was having problems finding those emails in searches, I thought it was something wrong with redirecting, but found out my indexing files needed to be deleted and rebuilt! Whew! Found the solution here )
