    I have a workaround, but I agree with this suggestion fully - here is my work around - for a PDF use the attachment preview function in the email body then save as, from File Explorer have a Desktop Folder with URL links to your SharePoint Sites/Subsites/DLs then you can save and rename direct into the SharePoint folder you want to. The purpose of the Preview here is to deal with those files, typically PDF, that get emailed with file name that doesn't tell you what the attachment is. This folder with URLs also works for saving any attachment on email. Obviously, be responsible about knowing who the attachments are from in preview. Microsoft, it should still be easier and not an innovative workaround to what should be an out of the box solution to a very common way of working with office applications and email.

    We've just finished moving to SharePoint online and I can’t believe this is even a thing that you can’t attach docs or links direct from SharePoint to OWA. it shouldn't even be a question that needs asking. I’ve been researching this in the last few days because I assumed it was a setting I was missing, but it seems to have been ongoing for a few years. I had a dialogue with MS support today 25-1-19 about this and it was suggested I use Modern Team Sites not Classic SharePoint Sites for our business, but on testing this (attaching docs in OWA) you can still only access the default Doc Library on the Primary Site and no other DLs or Subsite DLs of that site. So still useless. The concept of a company using a Team Site as a project dumping ground where all docs go in the one default Document Library and that this will satisfy typical business functionality is blue sky rubbish at it best. Things need organising; maybe in a tech company with 10000+ employees where development projects involving lots of people need a cloud location to silo that project and the whole lot can be archived if it goes nowhere, it’s a useful tool. But not for the users on the ground with 10-50 people. We need to file and organise business documents securely and safely and when we need to send them it needs to be as few clicks as possible. Microsoft you really need to sort this very basic requirement and functionality out as a priority please.
