It would be great to be able to rename attachments when forwarding emails.
Sometimes you need to rename attachments and the only way is to sabe it to PC and then attach again.

This is a great idea when forwarding or sharing a file within a document. I don't like having to save, rename, re-attach after realizing the file name isn't intuitive/appropriate for the recipient. especially helpful for auto-generated file names. in addition to being a waste of time, it creates clutter if you forget to delete one of the two files.
maybe there should also be an option with a checkbox to also rename the original file at the same time. do it!

Once you attach a file to an email message there is no option to rename the file within the message window.
This limitation also exists when you wish to reply or forward an email which already contains an attached file.
Example, you receive an email with an attachment named 'a-file.doc'. Should you wish to forward this to someone else, you do not have the option to rename the file, unless you save the attachment to say your desktop, rename it there, and attach again.
Related to this, it would be extremely helpfull if there was a simple way to have all of the attachments file names put into a list or table. I often will have mult. attachments included on an email all covering/related to a single main topic and the efficiency lost typing out each of the attachment names, or saving them down, rename/copy, paste each back to the body of the email. A table or list could then be formatted as bullet point or numbered list perfect for quick descriptions of each file.

This would be very useful even before sending emails. I often use a program that will generate an attachment for Outlook and it ends up being "Exported results yyyy-mm-dd_hh-mm-ss.(file)". It'd be really handy to be able to rename that inline, rather than having to save it, rename it, then reattach it.
