You can use alternative email apps to access your outlook email to attach file. For iPhone iOS11 using native Mail app:
1. Go to Mail
2. Hold your finger on the blank space of the mail until the pop-up appears
3. Choose "Add Attachment"
4. You will come to native Document app, click the "Locations" of the top left corner
5. It will show any cloud storage apps you have on your phone, choose "Dropbox"
6. Choose any files you would like to attach in there
Hurrah, you have succesfully attached a file in your email! Different email apps may have slightly different steps but the key steps are choosing "Locations" and then "Dropbox" for iPhone users after you try to add attachment.
I think Android phone should work the same. By using other email apps will bypass the inability of Outlook app to attach file from Dropbox or any other cloud storage sources. Hope this helps.
We need to know how to attach a dropbox file via Outlook mail.
If you're doing this from within the Outlook app, then you need to contact Microsoft as it's their app and they seem to have removed that ability.
If you're doing this from within Dropbox, tap the elipsis ( ... ) for the file and select Export. Then tap Open in and select Outlook. Outlook will open and start a new email with the file attached.
The way we work is changing. Share and discover new ways to work smarter with Dropbox in our community.Sound good? Let's get started.
