Is it possible to tell Thunderbird to make a folder available for offline use, but to fetch attachments on demand? I'd like to be able to fulltext-search my archives when offline, yet I hardly ever need the attached files.
I know I can limit the size of messages downloaded, but this also seems to exclude the message's body.
This question addresses a similar issue, but for Outlook. Strip attachments from emails to disk but leave a link in the email to the attachment
