How can we improve ProtonMail?

Ability to remove attachment after reading

Attachments are not always worth keeping, so please add ability to delete selected attachments as an alternative to simply downloading them.

        The ability to delete selected attachments while keeping the text of an email is a feature that is sorely missing from Protonmail. It would be hugely appreciated if your company could implement this!

        I support this idea as well.

        True, I to not worth keep the attachments, I feel it would be worth it.

        I support this feature. I have Protonmail plus and plan to use it regularly. However, people often send large attachments that tend to occupy mailbox space. Professional email users face this often, when exchanging multiple revisions of slide decks and comments. It would be very useful to keep the email text while deleting attachments.

        Yes! And not just "as an alternative to simply downloading them", but also after downloading them.

        In many cases, one wants to keep the message in the inbox, but delete the attachment -- mainly to save storage space, but sometimes for other reasons, as well

        Since space is so limited, I think this is a great idea.
