How do I stop saving attachments with sent mail?

I have many >5 Mb attachments in my sent mail and archive sent mail 
folders.  As I understand it there is no facility to afterwards strip 
the attachment but keep the mail.

So how do I change my Outlook 2003 settings so that I do not save the 
attachment when sending mail?

regards,

Beemer

To strip the attachment open the message from your Sent Items folder 
rightclick the attachment and choose Remove. Save and close the message.

You can open the message, delete the attachment, and re-save the message 
(file/save).

I do not see any "remove" in Outlook 2003.

When I delete the attachment per your advice the email disappears 
immediately without giving the chance to save?

Open the message first; do not do this from the Reading Pane

Robert,

I want to delete very large attachments of emails in my sent item 
folder.  You have advised me how to do this.  To find large attachments 
I look in the "Search folders/large email" The problem is that when I do 
this the emails are sorted by the email size and not the attachment 
size.

Can I make a new field which I can use to sort on attachment size?

Okay and thanks so now I can delete the attachments.  However how do I 
set Outlook 2003 so that the attachment does not get saved with the 
email in the Sent folder?

You can't.  There is no automatic way to strip the attachments from messages
stored in Sent Items.

Brian,

Thanks for the head-up reply.  I state the obvious..  but any 25Mb 
attachment, (as an extreme example such as a Photoshop or CAD file but 
still possible with my ISP) will result in the two files totalling 50Mb.

Cannot open Excel attachment from e-mail when Excel is already ope
This is driving me crazy. If I already have Excel open (with or with out a spreadsheet open) I cannot open an Excel spreadsheet attached to an e-mail.

Mail will not Send/Receive automatically
I have outlook set up to send/receive every minute but it suddenly stopped doing so. Anyone have ideas why? Robin Several. For starters, a one minute polling interval is just nuts.

If automatic polling once worked and now fails, you also need to examine what changes were made to your setup before automatic polling stopped working. In general, here are the reasons automatic polling might fail in Outlook: 1. You have created an unrealistic po...
