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

Microsoft has updated Outlook Web App to enable users to directly save e-mail attachments to OneDrive for Business.

The new functionality enables users to access files more easily, regardless of their location, and also allows them to collaborate on these files in Office or Office Online without having to manage multiple versions.

In addition, the Outlook Web App automatically notifies the user if the file they are trying to send exceeds their organisation’s message size limit and provides a one-click option to upload to OneDrive for Business. This enables users to send files more quickly and reduces the likelihood of e-mails failing to send to the recipient.

Currently, Outlook Web App supports uploading files up to 200MB directly to OneDrive for Business, but this limit will be raised to 2GB over the next four to eight weeks.

The new features will be rolled out worldwide to all commercial, government and academic Office 365 customers with plans that include Exchange Online and OneDrive for Business over the next one to two months. The functionality has already been released for Outlook.com and OneDrive.com.
