Outlook Web App users can now save email attachments to OneDrive for Business folder

Microsoft is rolling out a couple of new features for Office 365 business customers. One of them will allow Outlook Web App users to save attachments they have received in emails directly to their OneDrive for Business folder.

Microsoft says:

"This allows you to access these files from wherever you are and more importantly, gives you the ability to collaborate on these files in Office or Office Online without having to manage and keep track of multiple versions."

In addition, the Outlook Web App will automatically notify users if the email attachment exceeds their business's message size limit. It will give them the option to upload to their OneDrive for Business folder. The app will also warn users when it detects a large email file and suggest that it be sent to OneDrive for Business. Most Office 365 business customers will see these new features added sometime this week, and it should be available worldwide sometime in the next couple of months.

  • MS should also need to add Print to PDF and save directly to OneDrive.
  • Windows 10 has a built in PDF printer now
  • Cloud Printing?
  • Only for OneDrive business. What about the rest of us? Do we already have this feature?
  • Yes we do.
  • This will come in handy.
  • Smart. No one uses Outlook Web App in business space. Patently Nandela.
  • Chromebooks?
  • No.
  • None of the millions of Offie 365 customers use their web based email access? How strange.
    I must live in some alternative universe to you.
  • Well a few do.
  • Wonder if this will be coming to on-premise deployments eventually, save Exchange attachments directly to SharePoint folders. Or maybe already there and I just haven't figured out how to do it.
  • Am I the only one who hates this new design?! I mean everything beautiful about the old windows design is gone,the metro design,now its all Android-ish :/
  • Yep metro appears to be gone
