Remove Mail Attachments

Want to save an email message but not the huge attached file? You can select a single message or many messages in Mail and choose Message, Remove Attachments. This will get rid of any attached files but keep the text of the message. This comes in handy if you are using email to collaborate on documents and want to keep the correspondence, but not the old copies of the now-updated document.

    Anyone know a way to remove attachments from a email on the iPad2. I can save the attachments no problems but then want to remove the attachment before archiving the email.

      I’d like to know the answer to this too. Do you know, Mr MacMost?

        No way to do it from the iPad currently.
