Mail features you aren’t using: Remove Attachments

Attachments—whether in messages you’ve received or copies of outgoing messages in your Sent mailbox—can chew up a lot of disk space. If you use an IMAP or Exchange account that imposes a storage quota, this can become a significant concern. Luckily, Mail can remove attachments from stored messages, and if you’ve already saved a copy of the attachments elsewhere, using this feature is a good idea. Locate one or more messages with attachments and choose Message -> Remove Attachments. Behind the scenes, Mail duplicates the message (omitting attachments) and deletes the original.
