Outlook: Remove attachments from messagesOctober 2, 2008
The good folks over at OfficeWatch have documented how to save Outlook storage space by removing attachments from emails. They give instructions for both Outlook 2007 and 2003.
- Double-click the email message to open it.
- Select Edit > Edit Message* (or Revise Contents*) from the message window’s menu.
- Right-click on the attachment then select Remove.
* My Outlook 2003 (version 11.8206.8202 SP3) has a slightly different menu option than the Revise Contents they show in their screenshot—mine says Edit Message, just like in Outlook 2007.
