This Visual Basic for Applications (VBA) example uses the Remove method to remove all attachments from a forwarded message before sending it on to Dan Wilson. To run this example, replace 'Dan Wilson' with a valid recipient name and keep a mail item that contains at least one attachment open in the active window.

Sub RemoveAttachmentBeforeForwarding()
    Dim myolApp As Outlook.Application
    Dim myinspector As Outlook.Inspector
    Dim myItem As Outlook.MailItem
    Dim myattachments As Outlook.Attachments
    Set myolApp = CreateObject("Outlook.Application")
    Set myinspector = myolApp.ActiveInspector
    If Not TypeName(myinspector) = "Nothing" Then
        Set myItem = myinspector.CurrentItem.Forward
        Set myattachments = myItem.Attachments
        While myattachments.Count > 0
               myattachments.Remove 1
        myItem.Recipients.Add "Dan Wilson"
        MsgBox "There is no active inspector."
    End If
End Sub
