Have you ever tried sending an attachment through email, only to be faced with error messages because the file was too large? It’s a frustrating experience that we’ve all encountered. But fear not, Microsoft Outlook is here to save the day with an upcoming update that will revolutionize the way we send files.

According to the Microsoft 365 road map website, Feature ID 156100 is going to enable Outlook users to seamlessly upload large files, bypassing email size restrictions. This means that when you try to attach a file that exceeds the maximum size limit, you will now be prompted to upload it to OneDrive. No more worrying about email servers crashing or attachments slowing down the system.

This new feature brings Outlook in line with Google Gmail, which has allowed users to automatically upload large attachments to Google Drive for years. Previously, Outlook users would have to upload the file separately to OneDrive or another cloud storage service before including it in their email. But now, with this update, Microsoft has caught up and made file sharing a breeze.

For those using the free edition of Microsoft Outlook, this update is especially valuable. One of the biggest limitations of the free version is the restricted storage capacity. Outlook offers 15GB of free storage, while OneDrive provides 5GB. With the new update, free Microsoft users now have a combined storage pool of 20GB to manage across both services. That’s quite generous!

But when can we expect to see this update in action? Well, the good news is that it’s already rolling out for Android users. So if you’re an Android user, you can start taking advantage of this feature right away. As for other platforms, Microsoft has assured us that the update will gradually become available in the coming days. So keep an eye out for it.

This isn’t the only exciting feature that Microsoft has in store for us. Earlier this year, they announced several new features that we can expect to see soon. From multi-account search to folder/subfolder recursive search, these updates promise to make our Outlook experience even better.

So the next time you need to send a large file, don’t fret. Microsoft Outlook has got your back. With its new update, uploading and sharing large files will be a breeze. Say goodbye to error messages and hello to seamless file sharing. It’s just another example of how technology continues to make our lives easier and more convenient.
