Adding an attachment from OneDrive to a message in Outlook for Windows


  1. When you attach a file from your OneDrive account to an email message, by default the recipient will be given a link to the online file, which may cause some difficulties if the recipient hasn't been given permissions to the file or if the recipient is outside of the university. To bypass potential problems, you can attach a copy of the file to the message.
  2. In the Compose window, click Attach File and select the OneDrive file.

  3. Click on the arrow beside the attachment and select Attach as copy.

    Attach as copy

  4. You will see a progress indicator which will disappear when the copy has been attached. Address and send as usual.
