    Deleting Evolution email attachments

    Hello all,

    Heres the thing: I want to be able to delete attachments in messages that are in my evolution inbox but still keep the message. That way I have a record of things i get sent but no need to keep a bloated inbox of large files that were useful at the time but are now redundant.

    I see no obvious way to do this at the moment (am i missing something). A thread started in 2007 and last updated in 2008 reveals the following:
    http://people.debian.org.tw/~chihchu...on-plugin-002/

    However this plugin not only no longer works, but doesn't appear to have made it in to the Evolution plugins set.

    I know I can always delete the message, but this is for me a far more elegant approach.

    Many thanks,
    -M

    Hi Milo,

    Grrrr....

    also jut realised that isn't working any longer.

    that is a "Killer Feature" for me.
    But the evolution development is blind for that many years.

    I found the issue (min one) in the source (menu handling has changed in evolution).
    Not sure if my knowledge allow to fix it. Will give it a try.

    Or much better the "CHECKER of Evolution" create a plugin.

    I'm completely blind,

    Mister Rex Tsai has already done the great job and created a package
    for Mavarick.

    Really thanks Rex...

    Hi,
    sounds hopefull. However the link to lauchpad returns Not allowed here even if I am logged in. For some reason excluded. Any clue/help?

    Thanks a lot!

    Deleting attachment is really a key feature.

    Hi Filip,

    you don't need a add-on any longer.
    The feature is included up to evolution version 3.x without any additional installation.
