Hi. To control the size of my Outlook mailbox, I often save attachments

elsewhere and then delete them from the email.

I don't remember having had this problem before, but in any case I am now

finding that I cannot delete photos or documents that were inserted into,

rather than attached to, messages.

Can anyone tell me how to do delete them?

Thank you.

To remove attachments or photos that have been embedded into the message

body, you'll have to place the message in edit mode first.

Open the message via a double click-> button Other Actions-> button Edit

Message...

Remove the unwanted content and then save and close the message.

Wow, thanks, Robert -- works like a charm...

Regards,

Hammar, now 2010!

BTW, I signed up to receive a notice if there was a response but didn't get

one. If I hadn't double-checked, I might never have known you answered, which

would have been a real waste.

The web interface doesn't work well. Using a newsreader is a better

alternative.
