Email attachments and Gnus

When you receive files in your email and they're embedded in the mail message, a quick way to save them is to hit K o. With a numerical prefix, it will save the nth inline or MIME attachment.

If the file is large and you want to strip it from the mail message, K O will do the trick. Again, deleting the same can be done via K d, because some mail clients will stupidly resend the attachments when replying without stripping it first as a default behaviour.

More useful commands can be found here.

So, I'm a few years late on this one, but I'm still the first comment!

Thanks a bunch. I haven't quite mustered up the courage (and time) to face that 500-page behemoth of a manual yet, and your post here was just what I needed to know.
