How do I remove an e-mail attachment before sending or forwarding it?

EmailMany e-mail programs today support the ability to adjust the e-mail attachments within the program. For example, in Mozilla Thunderbird users can right-click an e-mail attachment and select the option to detach or delete the attachment from the e-mail program. Once this has been done forwarding that e-mail to another user will send the message without the detached or deleted attachment.

Alternatively, you can save the attachments to the computer you want to forward or send to another user and then create a new e-mail message with those attachments.
