The entire email with the attachment can be deleted, but no I do not think you can delete just the attachment.

Bump.
 
Actually, i would REALLY like a feature like this.
I want to archive emails, the conversations, but i don't care about many of the attachments. It would be great to be able to go through a mailbox and tell it to strip off the attachments. It would greatly reduce the amount of storage space required to archive info.
 
Is there any way to drop attachments ?  even if directly from the server ?

Hello,
 
We are also quite interested in this functionality. We would like to use the Web interface to delete attachments without deleting the email.
 
Cheers,

Thanks for your feedback! As stated, at this time it's not possible to delete only the attachments of an email. However, I have changed this thread from a Question to an Idea in order to facilitate tracking on this request. 
 
Thank you!

Any chance this is making it into SM 16?

Guys,
 
This won't make it into 16.x as modifying the body of an email message is quite an undertaking. (Based on how SmarterMail builds the message.) However, I've added it for discussion for 17.x as it fits nicely with the ability to preview images uploaded as attachments when composing a message.

We`re OK with V17 if it will make it there.
