    Thunderbird 1.5 delete attachments (Thunderbird 1.

    Has anyone found a way to delete attachments en masse from Thunderbird 1.5+?

    I drag my messages, in and out, into my own Trash folders "Trash200706", "Trash200705", "Trash200704" etc, and while I like being able to search the messages (subject, body, ...) for historic reasons, I see no need to maintain 100+MB Trash files loaded with attachments.

    Thunderbird 1.5 allows us to delete attachments and this seems to work for me by right-clicking a message and returning to the File menu.
    I can't seem to select all my messages with attachments and delete the attachments together. I'm not looking forward to selecting each message individually and returning to the file menu for each one ("Are you sure?")

    (3 mins later) That was easy. Now to download and install the addin.
    (3 mins later) That was easy. Now to execute the addin.
    (6 mins later) That was easy. My Trash200704 shrank from 110MB to 6MB.
    And I have Tbird 2.0
