    Is it possible to delete an attachment in an email message on hotmail with
    live messenger without deleting the email?
    The emails contain information I need to keep, but the number and size of
    attachments is huge and I have saved them to my HDD.

    The way I do that is copy the content of the mail and paste it into
    "send mail" that I send to myself. Then I delete the original mail

    You could Forward the e-mail, right click on the attachment, click Remove.
    Then either you .......
    1. click SAVE to send it to Draft folder, then drag/drop it to the folder
    you want, or
    2. send it to yourself, then drag/drop.
    The down-side is, either case, the header will show YOU as sender.
