This is automatically going to take up storage space on your device and leaving you with limited space because of the saved files that you might not even need in future or even at present. 

You can easily get rid of the auto-downloaded and auto-saved e-mail attachments in your Mac by following this short yet comprehensive guide. Just to make things clear, this guide will let you delete only the e-mail attachments that have been downloaded and saved in your Mac automatically.
