Emails saved to network increase in size when attachments are deleted.


  • I have noticed something strange with emails I have saved from Outlook 2010 into a folder on my network.

    When I delete files attached to these emails, the size of the saved email increases.

    I realise that I could delete the attachment while the email is in my mailbox and then save it to the network folder, sans attachment, but I want to retain the email in it's original condition in my mailbox.

    The environment I am operating under is a remote desktop connection from a local Win XP Pro machine to a Windows Server 2008 server.
