Delete Attachments in Googlemail? Anhänge in Gmail löschen?

hi
Is it possible to delete only an attachment from a mail?

Ist es möglich nur den Anhang einer Mail zu löschen?

I found 2 programs that offer this needed option - who has experience with them?

IMAPSize

Delete attachments (all or individual) without downloading them.

Slimbox

Easily download attachments within your emails to your computer, and optionally remove them from inbox.

thx

Hi Clemens,

 

Welcome to the Gmail Help Forum.


There is no option available to delete only the attachment in an email. You can delete/remove the attachment only while forwarding the email to an other email address.


Keep us posted for any questions on Gmail.

 

Best,

Rocky

Levels

Member levels indicate a user's level of participation in a forum. The greater the participation, the higher the level. Everyone starts at level 1 and can rise to level 10. These activities can increase your level in a forum:

  • Post an answer.
  • Having your answer selected as the best answer.
  • Having your post rated as helpful.
  • Vote up a post.
  • Correctly mark a topic or post as abuse.

Having a post marked and removed as abuse will slow a user's advance in levels.
