Attaching Office documents to email on Windows 10 Mobile

One of my pet peeves on Windows Phone is how limited the email client is when it comes to sending attachments. You can only attach media files from inside the email Compose page. To attach an Office document in an outgoing mail, you have to open and use the OneDrive app. Silly; right? Very.

I have been running the Windows 10 Mobile Preview for a few months now and it is good news that Microsoft has finally addressed that horrible experience.


The new Outlook Mobile works like any standard email client should – allowing the user to attach a wider range of files from inside the email Compose page. I have been able to attach Office and PDF documents right from in there. That is in addition to media files.

I am glad to see that Microsoft finally sorted this out, so if it is an issue with you on Windows Phone 8.x, Windows 10 Mobile has got you covered All you have to do now is wait.

  1. Good to know Microsoft is finally maturing. I’ve been avoiding Windows phone because of issues like this. Windows 10 mobile is a gamechanger that might just pull me towards the Lumia and other WP devices; might.

  2. @ Ral not a good enough reason to avoid the Windows Phone experience because of an issue like this – there are so many other great ones that outweigh this!

    I can’t wait until Windows 10 comes out – I’m just wondering why they’re torturing us like this. And I can bet that, come November, some of us won’t get the update until the new year :/

  3. Please my brother Arena, i want to past this very important issue directly to you.or if any one seen solution to it can help MY “INFINIX ZERO X509″WHICH I BOUGHT LAST WEEK IS NOW NO LONGER WORKING JUST HANG UP, Y ; THE UPGRADE MENU KEY WHICH I ENTERED THOUGHT THAT IT WILL SOLVE THE PROBLEMS OF(1) “HEATING, WHEN MAKING OR RECEIVING CALLS ON MY HEAR”(2)WITHOUT USING LOUDSPEAKER, THE VOLUME STILL VERY LOW TO HEAR SOMEONE AND LOT MORE, PLEASE IF POSSIBLE THIS MY CONTACT 08038712344

  4. Not a good enough reason? Alright, if u say so. I’ll just let u know it’s not my only reason. There are others: not having as many apps as the other platforms; having some apps inferior to or always seeming to be the last to receive new features found in their counterparts on other platforms; average multitasking; & the fact that WP did not have a file manager for a long time. I’m not trying to start a debate forum, and honestly, I don’t have the juice for it. Don’t get me wrong, I like the OS, but I think u would agree with me that it has a lot of growing up to do. Hopefully, all these issues will be resolved in Windows 10 mobile (fingers crossed).

  5. I hope I will be able to update my 625 to windows 10 too.

    In all fairness, the phone does everything well. I just might have preferred tiles instead of list menu. But all in all, moderate phone.
