Outlook Gets Major Overhaul
Attachments can be a hassle to share among co-workers. Does everyone have the latest version? Did a colleague update a document with added content? Could the attachment be infected? Microsoft is trying to solve these problems by gently pushing users to be more cloud-centric.
In Outlook 2016, Microsoft now gives you a subtle nudge when you're adding an email attachment. Now the drop-down ’add attachment’ menu item asks you if you want to add a file, but also if you want to share a link to a file stored on your SharePoint, OneDrive or OneDrive for Business account.
Even if you add an attachment from your OneDrive, you can still choose to share it as a classic attachment, an embedded attachment or a cloud attachment.
