Microsoft’s OneDrive Integration Solves ‘File Too Large’ Woes

How many times have you found yourself in the midst of composing an urgent email, attaching a crucial file, only to be confronted with that dreaded notification: “File too large to send”? It’s an experience that can be undeniably frustrating, isn’t it?

Uploading large files on Outlook can be frustrating cause you’ll always be greeted with an error prompt. But, as we’ve spotted on Microsoft 365 Roadmap site under Feature ID 162653, Microsoft will soon prompt to upload the file to OneDrive instead whenever users try to attach a file to an email message that has hit the maximum size limit.

In an official announcement posted on the Microsoft 365 roadmap, the tech giant has unveiled its plan to seamlessly integrate Outlook with Microsoft’s OneDrive cloud storage platform. Here’s the game-changing part: when you encounter that attachment size limit in Outlook, the application will now prompt you to upload your file directly to OneDrive. This ingenious solution ensures that your document still reaches its intended recipient without the vexing limitations of file size.

Initially, this new feature will roll out to Android devices, giving them a head start. However, for everyone else eagerly awaiting this solution, the rollout is set to commence this month. So, you won’t have to wait much longer.

Soon, you’ll no longer need to engage in the laborious task of compressing, resizing, or worse, abandoning your large files. You also won’t have to resort to third-party services, which can pose security risks. Microsoft is paving the way for a smoother, more efficient email experience, making your daily communication tasks far less cumbersome.
