Those Annoying Mail Attachments

Do you use a standard Mail application? If yes – then this article totally worth reading. Often we receive letters, pictures, documents and other files attached to them. As well we frequently send emails with attachments. Did you know that all of these attachments are saved to your hard disk and take a huge amount of space?

In average per month average user gains around 500 MB of attachments stored on a Start Up Disk. The biggest problem is that 80% of users do not even suspect about it. Since they are stored in a hidden folder in the depth of the system.
