Deleting or Detaching while offline does not work
Deleting or Detaching doesn't work while offline STR Select message with Attachment Click down-arrow next to Save - notice Detach & Delete Go Offline Click down-arrow next to Save - notice they are disabled. I'm unsure why this is the case - TB knows enough about working offline to store up most other tasks - such as moving to Archives or other folders, or deleting, so why can't it remember when an Attachment needs removing from a message ? Why is this important - because if you work offline a lot it makes it hard to manage your email when offline.
I see those disabled for non-synchronized IMAP accounts. That would make a difference as deleting or detaching an attachment would imply changes to the messages body, which isn't available unless the folder is synchronized.
The accounts are IMAP and marked synchronised in the Account Settings, but I see what you mean as there could be various changes to the body, that couldn't be done when not connected.

related to bug 567716?
I don't understand bug #567716, I think its unlikely to be connected, as this is a case where the UI specifically disables detaching/deleting when offline.
