Message API (WebExtension) function to detach and/or delete attachments


(Thunderbird :: Add-Ons: Extensions API, enhancement)



(Not tracked)


(Reporter: Thunderbird_Mail_DE, Unassigned)



We need an API to detach and/or delete attachments.

It should be possible to do this as a bulk operation.

An additional permission may be necessary.

This API would be necessary for add-ons like "AttachmentExtractor" / "AttachmentExtractor Continued".

Any interesst in providing the necessary API? Maybe I'm wrong and no additional API is necessary?

Bug 1645595 would likely need to be fixed before or as part of this.
