Outlook.com email attachments can now be saved to OneDrive

Outlook.com email users now have the option to easily and quickly save attachments right into OneDrive cloud storage. The update to the web email service adds a "Save to OneDrive" that, well, lets you save attachments to OneDrive.

Thankfully Microsoft has made this a straight-forward process:

"We've made it simpler and tidier to manage these email attachments. When you receive an email with an attachment or group of attachments—documents, pictures, music or videos—you can now save them to OneDrive in just one click."

Files saved in this manner are put into a OneDrive folder with the all-too-obvious name of "Email attachments" to make finding the later easier. The first hints of the new feature appeared over the weekend, but now it's available to all Outlook.com users.
