After recieving a message, the person asking the question saves the attachment to disk and then wants to be able to remove the attachment from the email, saving only the text.
I thought this one would be easy. In Outlook you can open up the received message, right click on the attachment, and select remove.
No such luck in Outlook Express. In fact, as far as I can tell it can’t be done within Outlook Express.
However I did stumble into this hack for manually removing attachments. I’ll warn you that it is a hack; it involves using a text editor to remove the attachment portion of the message from its raw form. Relatively straightforward, but not something I’d want to do.
