Step 6. Now, you will get to see a menu of options on the left side. There, go to Mail > Attachment options > Attachment preferences. Here, you can specify the attachment preferences of yours, namely:

  • Files I choose from my computer. When you attach a particular file from the computer, the system asks you how you want to attach them: as OneDrive files, or as copies. If you always click on the same option and you are tired of that, just select the setting that suits you. If you attach them as OneDrive files, for instance, you have to select the second setting: “Always attach them as OneDrive files.”
  • Files I choose from OneDrive. Here, it is going about the same. Choose a respective option.
  • Warn me when I send a message that may be missing an attachment. If you will keep this setting selected, it means that you will receive a notification every time you are writing an email letter without an attachment. If you do not need that, just unselect this setting.

Step 7. Once you have configured everything in this section, click on the “Save” button.

Step 8. Now, go to Mail > Attachment options > Storage accounts (one section lower).
