Microsoft has today announced they are rolling out new features and enhancements to their Outlook.com email service. That now allows Outlook.com users to save email attachments directly to the Microsoft OneDrive cloud storage service.
The new email attachment save features can be controlled using just one click, and Microsoft will be rolling out the new feature to accounts worldwide over the coming week. So if it hasn’t arrived quite yet be patient as its on its way.
Microsoft explains a little more about the one click email attachment save feature which allows Outlook.com users to save attachments to OneDrive :
“Before cloud storage became popular, some people would email documents to themselves, because they knew they’d be able to log in to their email account and access those documents from anywhere. People still do this today, however, there is an obvious downside—your inbox can get messy quickly and you have to search through ever-increasing email content until you find what you’re looking for.
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.
When you click Save to OneDrive, your files are added to a new OneDrive folder called Email attachments, making them a breeze to find and share. You’ll be able to access these files from all your devices (for example, by using the OneDrive mobile app or Office for iPad)–instead of leaving them to clutter your inbox.”
