  • Tried to search for answer first but in vain.

    My mailbox is expanding too much. I want that outlook would not save the attahment, but only it´s name.

  • Hi Tero,

    Generally, I am afraid there is no built-in option in Outlook to keep the name of an attachment only. You may have to manually save the file name and then remove the attachment from the message.

    As regards to your concern about the mailbox size, hopefully you can find the best practices mentioned in the article below helpful:
