Remove an Attachment
This is useful if the attachment is taking up too much space in your email. An attachment is signified by the paperclip icon in the email, which is circled below.
To save the attachment to your computer:
- Click the down arrow to the right of the attachment.
- Choose “save as” and save the attachment to your computer or other destination.
- Note: you can also save all the attachments together, if an email has multiple. This will save time if an email has multiple attachment.
You can then remove the attachment from the email by using the same dropdown. This will not delete the attachment from your computer, as long as you saved it before you removed it. This will also keep the email itself, which will now be much smaller because there isn't a large attachment.
This trick, along with being able to sort emails by their size in the view options is a great way to easily stay out of email jail, so you can focus on doing your actual work instead of spending time cleaning up your email box!
