When right-clicking on a MS Office document (Word or Excel) and dragging the item on Inbox (in Outlook) then releasing the right mouse button the item can be copied in Inbox. This is a loose item, i.e. not an attachment of a mail item.
Archive Manager back loads the item in the AM database but does not strip it. Why?
This is not currently feasible in Archive Manager. Enhancement Request ST64935 has been raised for this functionality to be included in a future release of Archive Manager
