That Remove option only works in WLM while composing a message.
Unfortunately, Windows Live Mail doesn't provide any means to remove an
attachment from a sent or received message. There are several
1 - Forward the message to yourself, but Remove the attachments from
the composition window (right click on the attachment icon) before
sending. However, this will alter the sender's name and the date/time
2 - If you are familiar with the way attachments are encoded in a mail
message, you can manually edit the message source.
- Do a File, Save As to save the message to an *.EML file, or
drag-and-drop the message to a Windows folder
- Then edit the file in Notepad or other text editor. For some
information on the formatting of attachments, see http://pages.prodigy.net/michael_santovec/decode.htm
- Save the file
- You can drag-and-drop the message back to an WLM folder. Or you can
double click the saved file from the Windows File Explorer. It will
open in a mail window. You can then select File, Copy to folder.
- You can then delete the original message.
