Gmail Attachments

My gmail storage is filling up with attachments. Have I missed some way to trash attached files (outbound and inbound) without also trashing the messages? Or does it not exist yet?

I do not believe that you can trash the attachment without trashing the message. That's been on my wishlist for a while.

Why not copy the text of the messages and email them to yourself, without the attachments?

Doesn't exist yet. You can suggest it though (under Bells & Whistles).

I'll suggest this to them too as I'd like to see this implemented. On a related note I've also set up a filter so that all incoming and outgoing mails with attachments are labelled with "attachment" so I can at least find all emails with attachments easily. So far I've been using it to delete the mails outright, though...

huh? but if you click "Show search options", then check the checkbox "Has attachment", you can find all mails with attachments.
