Frustrating, isn’t it? When you’re in the midst of an urgent email, attaching an important file, only to encounter the dreaded “file too large” notification.
Well, relief is on the way. Microsoft has heard our collective sighs of annoyance and unveiled an update to banish the “file too large” issue once and for all.
And this is one of those rare times where a solution sounds too good to be true but actually is!
In an official post on the Microsoft 365 roadmap, the tech giant revealed its plan to integrate Outlook with Microsoft’s OneDrive cloud storage platform. This means that when you reach that attachment size limit, Outlook will prompt you to upload your file to OneDrive so it still makes its way to the intended recipient.
Clever, don’t you think? It’s an elegant solution that maintains the convenience of attaching files directly in Outlook without restrictive size caps.
Android devices will get this handy new feature first, but the rollout extends to everyone else this month. We don’t have long to wait!
Soon you’ll no longer need to compress, resize or even abandon your large email attachments. And you can avoid resorting to risky third-party services too. Microsoft is paving the way for a much smoother, more efficient email experience overall.
If you’d like a hand getting the most out of your Microsoft 365 subscription, get in touch. I’m here to help you maximize its capabilities.
With this update, ‘file too large’ errors will become a thing of the past. Emailing large attachments just got a whole lot easier thanks to Microsoft’s thoughtful solution. What a relief!
