    I am using Outlook 2003 with many separate pst files. I want to save an email to the appropriate pst folder without saving all of the attachments. Is there a way to delete the attachments before or while moving the message from the sent folder to the appropriate sub-folder? My system is running XP-SP3.

    Yes - you have to open the message first, and then right-click on the attachment icon in the header of the email and choose "remove" and then close the email and say you want to save it. I don't believe there is any way to do it as a part of the "Move To Folder" command however.

    You might be able to adapt some of the code in this star post: #443421Outlook Attachment Removal Manager.

    Thanks, the code works well. The only addition I would want would be the ability to select files for removal without saving them. I have some boilerplate files that get added to a lot of messages that I don't want to save. The first method works, but it would be nice not to have to exit the form to do this.
