I was wondering if there was a way, either via a mail client or via the web interface, to keep the email intact, but remove the attachment? So they can save the document to their computer, but remove the document from the mail message on the server, thus freeing up space?

I user Eudora OSE which is basically wrapped around Thunderbird. I think
it removes attachments from the server by default when I click on the
attachment at the bottom of the message.
So, my conclusion is that Thunderbird would work in the manner you ask
about and the central mail server cooperates.... /L
