How to add files to a received message in Mozilla Thunderbird

By sachin.adhikari ·
We have recently started using Thunderbird. My Organization has mandated that all email attachments will be received only as a link. Original attachment is saved on mail server. We only receive a link to the file. Once download from the server, the attachment needs to be stored in some folder. Post 7 days the attachment link in the email expires. How can i edit a received message and just save the attachment into this email. In Ms Outlook this was possible by editing the inbox message and then just pasting a file or a message in the mail. Just save the message and done. Attachment / file saved forever in the message.

Try the XNote extension, you can attach Text to the message, so you can put the filename etc.

Other possibility move message do Drafts folder, edit and move back to Inbox! Disadvantage, Sender and Time data is lost!

Third way:
install "TB Header Tools extension" addon you can edit the whole email, including body and attachment section !! (not really a solution)

Best should be to change data back (3.) after adding attachment (2.)
