I would like to know if there is a way to remove an attachement from a message?

Move it to Draftbox, open it for editing, remove the attachment, save it back to Draftbox, and move it back where it came from? It's no longer the same message that you received, and Balsa doesn't make it easy to create bogus messages!

Now that was really ingenious, so I couldn't help trying it for
myself... It kinda works, I was able to remove the attachment, but the sender was lost, as I became the sender while editing the message, which is not what Jean-Luc probably needs.

Thanks [ takes bow ] but it wasn't my idea--iirc, it's been discussed on the list!

Many versions ago, Balsa allowed you to write anything in the From: line; now, you'd have to create a bogus identity to do that. So it's still possible, just cumbersome.

Hideous as it may seem, this could be a very useful feature. Getting rid of unneeded attachments while preserving the original text part and keeping the original flow of the discussion thread (if any) could save significant space in some cases.

Yes, that's right. I guess the attachment could be replaced with a place-holder that indicates that an attachment was removed--that would be a reminder for the user, and an alert for anyone the message is forwarded to.
