Return the ability to remove an attachment
The options with attachments are now Preview, Open, Save and the previous ability to save an attachment, then delete from the email so you can then save the email was really useful. You could then put the files (attachments where you wanted them) and also keep the email without the attachment. The loss of this is a major issue as it multiplies the size of your Mail folders.
No reason to keep heavy document save on outlook.
Absolutely necessary to figure out this problem and be able to delete attached documents
It is absolutely essential to be able to delete attachments as others say, because of storage limitations. Having to switch between 'new' Outlook and 'old' Outlook to accomplish this one task each time is tiresome. Otherwise I love the new Outlook!

This needs to be fixed! I receive large attachments in emails. After saving the attachment to my Documents, there's no reason to keep it as an attachment!
Agree, it is very inconvenient to not be able to remove the attachments from emails. Please return this feature back to the New Outlook.

Please allow removal of attachments like old outlook.

I hope this is not true, but my thought goes straight to this is a way for MS to extract more $$ for storage. Please allow me to delete attachments when I want / need to store the rest of the email. I do like the ability that existed in previous versions to leave the filename of previously attached files.

Add the ability to remove attachments from an email like existed in the "classic" outlook.

Allow users to delete attachments. Some companies have file restriction limits and these can add up over time and slow down performance.
previously, I was possible to delete the attachments

The new Outlook looks great. But I miss the option to remove attachments from mails, in order to save space and prevent my mailbox from exploding. I hope this option can be re-implemented. If not, please let me know how to save this unnecessary space.
