Im using Win XP and Outlook XP.  How do I delete any attachements to mails already sent or mails received in my inbox?

At my work pc, I am able to open an email and simply delete the attachement and then save again, but not here.  Any ideas?

Hi ey143,
>  How do I delete any attachements to mails already sent

Are you trying to delete just the attachment and not the entire email ? I really doubt it can be done

Hi ey143,
After opening the attachment, right click on the icon and choose remove. Does this do what you wanted?
Best of luck

Yes this did work.  My apologies for not coming back to this email.  I previously tried hitting the del key on the icon, should have checked the right menu on it.

Thanks for your help.
