This is related to the answer I just gave for a different question. 
MailMate needs to provide some kind of hook when pasting/dragging 
attachments. This would allow a script which could offer to resize 
images. But such a hook does not exist yet.

This is another item on the todo. Making it easy to use any kind of web 
storage service to allow the insertion of a link to an uploaded copy 
instead of including the actual attachment. This could/should depend on 
the file size such that small attachments are not uploaded.

I'm sorry I don't currently have better answers for you.
