I don't know of a program that will do what you want, but there is a program that will compress your attachments.  Check out Max Compression from C2C.

-------------------------------------------------------Kind of on the same line of the PST thread.  We, as I'm sure many of you
out there do, struggle with the administrators, dept managers, doctors
and such getting them to adhere to our mailbox policies.  We actually do
have a corporate wide policy limiting the size of your mailbox and it
does state that if you hit that limit we no longer allow you to send
email.  Turned that on a couple years ago and it took my director about
20 minutes to run in my office and say "TURN IT OFF NOW!!!"

So, with that said, we're looking at something a little more "pleasing"
to them folks.  We're thinking about deleting any attachments that are
over a certain age, but leaving the email itself.  I've basically been
told I'd be turned into a eunuch if I deleted any doctor's email, but I
may be able to get deleting just the attachments to fly.

Any ideas on a 3rd party tool that could do this?  Let's say something
like strip the attachment from any email that is older than 180 days...
