Mass deleting attachments
« on: March 17, 2005, 04:46:30 AM »
Hello!
I've just realized I've got hundreds of mbytes of attachments.
How to delete them all? Like selecting a bunch of messages together, and deleting their attachments?

Depends how they are stored - if you opted to store attachments within e-mail bodies you'll lose the messages as well. On the other hand if you stored them in a separate directory then just delete the attachments via Windows Explorer as you would do with any other file deletion. Hope this helps.  :sunny:
Cheers!
Anne

I stored them in the email bodies.
I also tried to find an option to convert/switch to separate directory storing, but I nor found such an option.

By the way, separately you can delete attachements from emails, even if they're stored in body. They should just add an option to execute that for all selected emails.
