    Arrow Remove Attachments from Messages

    Outlook allows users to remove attachments from e-mail messages. This seems like basic functionality that really needs to be included in Zimbra in order to compete.

    The bulk of the storage space is due to attachments, so if users could remove attachments they've downloaded and just save the e-mail message, this could greatly reduce the total file and backup storage requirements.

    There's a bug posted, but I was told it needs more votes in order to be addressed. If you think this would help you, please add your two cents.

    Bug 233 - Ability to remove attachment from received message

    If the system could prompt the user to remove the attachment when they clicked to download it, that would be a great usability feature. There's already the ability to search for messages with large attachments, so users would be able to better manage their space consumption.


    cheers,

    Darryl

    I just had someone send me 25 megabytes of file attachments. I want to keep the messages, but since I've downloaded the attachments, there's no need to keep them. This is a daily issue it seems.

    If anyone has any workarounds for this problem, I'd love to hear them.

    Default Remove attachments

    Please do add this feature urgently.
    Just to control the size e-mail boxes we might just migrate back to Outlook

    Brilliant idea I suppose. Would greatly reduce space consumption on the expensive external fcal hdd storage.

    This feature was added 6 months ago, in version 6.0.2. If you're on 6.0.4, you've already got it. It always worked if you removed the attachment using a third party client.

    Exclamation Remove attachments

    Hi we're just using the Zimbra desktop client (1.0.4), latest version and I have not found any way to remove attachments.
    So it's not a server but a client problem.

    It won't be available in zdesktop 1.0. It will be in zdesktop2, which is currently in beta and will be released in July.
