    AFAIK only 3rd party tools can:

    - detach attachments
    - save them into a user defined folder
    and
    - keep a link to those attachments in the mailheader (under attachments) so that the attachments can be re-instated if needed

    My wish is that there would be a native solution for this.

    I believe this is not (yet) available within Outlook.

    later:

    I have discovered there is a macro that can be of great help(?) - details can be found on
    Save and Rename Outlook Email Attachments

    I have quite a number of attachments that are identically named from several people in emails sent on several days.

    Is there a way to change the macro to the effect that the attachment reads:
    sendername-date-filename
    i.e.
    SomeName-27102017-SomeFileName.pdf

    without.. removing the file from the email.

    Thanks

    p.s. should I post the above in another forum section?
