Hi John,
I'm sorry if my description was meaningless, I must have reported that 
in a hurry and my explanations must have been sloppy.

Here's the thing, which I was just able to reproduce:
1) I send an email to myself, with two attached files
2) I receive and click on it.
3) I right click one of the attached files:
    a) detach all and save all is disabled and online appears gray
    b) detaching one of them results in a saved file on my disk as intended,
       but does NOT delete the file from the email account (I use IMAP) 
and is still         hogging memory on the server side. This is 
especially problem when people are sending these annoyingly huge 
attachments ...

This used to work before the previous update, and in (20081125) 
it seems not to anymore.

Thanks for your feedback,
