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.
