Remove attachments from Apple Mail emails

Apple Mail IconAttachments can be pretty big and more often than not once you receive an email you’ll have saved that attachment to your Mac for safekeeping. Before you know it you’ll have hundreds of megabytes of emails on your Mac and wondering how on earth to make them smaller.

I need to refer back to emails so I really do need to keep them safe but I no longer need the large attachments so if you didn’t know you can simply click on the message in question and go to Message > Remove Attachments. Simple as that!
