Mail Slimmer (v.1.2)
Mail.app can handle a big amount of emails. In case it slows down, this applet is what you need.

• v. 1.2: requires Mac OS X 10.9.x (Mountail Lion) or earlier
• v. 1.0 requires Mac OS X 10.4.x (Tiger) or 10.5.x (Leopard).

What the applet does

1. Rebuilds Mail.app database indexes
2. Trash saved attachment files

When a mail attachment is opened by double-clicking on it directly from mail body, its file is saved in “Mail Downloads” folder.
All saved attachments can be safely trashed, because the original attachment is still located in the body of the original email.
