How many times have you been in the middle of an important email, attaching crucial file, only to be greeted with the dreaded “file too large to send” notification?
Isn’t it frustrating?
Microsoft has heard our collective groans of frustration. They’ve launched an upgrade that claims to end the ‘file too large’ problem for good.
And this is one of those rare times where something that feels too good to be true is actually true!
Microsoft confirmed its plan to merge Outlook with Microsoft’s OneDrive cloud storage technology in an official article on the Microsoft 365 roadmap.
When you reach the attachment size limit, Outlook will prompt you to upload your file to OneDrive so that your document reaches the right recipient.
Don’t you think it’s clever?
This new function will be available initially on Android smartphones, but it will be available to everyone else later this month. We won’t have to wait long.
Soon, you won’t have to compress, resize, or even discard your huge files. Or turn to third-party services (which can be a security risk). Microsoft is paving the way for a more efficient and smoother email experience.
