Can anyone advise how I delete an attachment from outlook express but keep the text message itself?

I don't think you can delete attachments. However you can save the email text without the attachment, then delete the original including the attachment.

I have a little program called OE Quicktools which will delete the attachment from E-mails and also remove the >>>>> signs from forwarded messages in Outlook Express.
It was on a magazine disc some months ago and originally supplied by click here.
I don't know if they still supply it but you can always try them.
If you don't get fixed up, e-mail me and I'll try and sort something out for you.

It took a bit of finding but I tracked it down at this website : click here

all the text is in italian but scroll down and you will find it - Freeware. It says it works with OE5 but I've tested OK under OE6 (removing the attachment anyway).

If you want a 21KB HELP file in English just let me know.
