   Hello,

now that I'm running short on Gmail storage, I figured there are many
emails with attachments that I would like to keep, but without the
attachments (for example because I saved them somewhere else).

Is there a way in Gnus/nnimap to save and email but get rid of the
attachments?

Thanks!

If you hit `e' on an nnimap message containing attachments, you can then
edit it to delete the attachments.  This can probably be automated
pretty easily...

I use `d' on an attachment button to delete it, `C-o' to save it and
replace it with a link to where you save it, `r' to delete it and
replace it with a link to a specified, already existing file, etc.

On nnimap groups, this works, but is a bit flakey, often leaving both
the edited message and the original message around.  When that happens,
I just delete the original message.
