It looks like the folks over at Microsoft are about to make their Office online and mobile services all the more versatile, with the introduction of Dropbox and Box integration. This is certainly a step in the right direction to say the least, especially when you consider just how indispensable some of us find the likes of Dropbox and Box to be. Outlook users who are rocking on iOS and Android platforms have been enjoying such an ability for some time now, so it is nice to see balance being introduced with Box and Dropbox integration arriving on the Outlook.com platform.
It will take a few mor weeks before users of the new Outlook.com are able to attach files from Dropbox, Box and OneDrive straight from on’s inbox without having to open some sort of file manager program, and one can also pick from the option to sending such files either as traditional attachments or as cloud-based links.
Before you can take advantage of such a feature, however, you will have to be upgraded to the new Outlook Mail Preview on the web, which means it will remain off limits to many users who happen to be rocking to the previous version of Outlook.com. [Press Release]
