Save disk space by deleting copies of Mail attachments
Authored by: barefootguru on May 18, '13 04:54:30PM

Under Mountain Lion my version of this folder is ~/Library/Containers/com.apple.mail/Data/Library/Mail Downloads

@petersconsult not sure why you'd want to run POP in this day and age. I check the same e-mail accounts on 4 different devices, IMAP's the only way to stay sane doing that. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Internet_Message_Access_Protocol#Advantages_over_POP

Seriously.

I'm as big a fan of local storage as the next luddite, but when you try to access three different mail accounts from a home desktop, a home laptop, a work desktop, an iPhone, and an iPod Touch in any functional way, POP does not cut it. Besides, with offline caching, there's really not that much difference between IMAP and POP (unless the IMAP server instructs your local computer to purge the entire contents of a folder or something, in which case you're relying on your local backup).

Thanks for the heads up. I found my downloads folder in the same place. Running Mountain Lion 10.8.3.
