I would like to see the ability to reply to a message with out having to resend back the Attachments (i.e.  photos, pdf's. ect..)  to the person I am replying.

I was not able to find this feature anywhere, and it would be a nice option to have. It even would be nice to have the ability to make it a default feature to customize thunderbird even more.

This is implemented for images which are attachments of a message and will
be available in the upcoming 3.0 version. See bug 384599 for the back-end and
bug 445088 for a possible front-end implementation of that feature.

No such option exists for images which are part of the message itself (i.e., images embedded into HTML messages). Reverting to plain-text mode or manually removing the images are the current workarounds for these cases, thus having some option to avoid inclusion of such images as well would be helpful.

I'm confirming this for the second part of including or omitting embedded inline images in reply quotes, which were not covered by any of the other bugs. This was mentioned as part of bug 269225, which was closed WFM after the main issue was resolved and that bug lacked sufficient focus to continue.

If this is going to be implemented, the question is if it can be covered by the mail.reply_quote_inline preference introduced in bug 384599, or if this should be rather a separate setting.
