I'd be inclined to try to write an Auto-It or AutoHotKey script, 
probably,
either a clever one that finds the mails concerned and works through the
detach (and delete) or detach (and save) process you want, or maybe one
that uses info from you extract separately from the box 
table-of-contents
to find the right mails.  (It's so long snce I used MP I can't remember 
if
you can isolate all the has-attachment mails some way first.)

It'd not necessarily be quicker, but I'd enjoy learning how and 
hopefully
pick up a useful skill at the same time.



Or, export them and work with the export files, then reimport just the 
base
mails without the attachments?


Or do it a third of the mails at a time, manually, so you don't quite 
expire
on any one occasion?
