attach images as "attachment" and not embedded into body of email
Microsoft need to think further down the line... embedding pics makes it very tedious to save received emailed pics. The Logic is surely there. What is the point in only one option of embedding?...I just dont get it!
For gods sake use your common sense and let people be able to add a picture as a file and not embed the picture in the email message. What is wrong with you. Simple... "COMMON SENSE"
Samsung app is better then this and makes live easier... however I couldn't make 2 factor authentication work and have to use this terrible app to receive company emails... and I want to attache pictures as files too...
Turn off auto embedding photos into emails. or at least make it an option
Please modify the app so that pictures can be attached and not embedded.
This issue forces to NOT use the Outlook app to manage mails.
Thanks in advance!
FYI Samsung's default email app handles outlook email better than the official app - jpegs are attached not inline. It also allows you to resize while attaching.
Official outlook app should function like this, Gmail does it properly too.

As a workaround I Zip the image before attaching it.
That way I can still use Outlook.

I have started using another mail app instead of the Outlook app.
I still use the calendar in the Outlook app.
By using another mail app I can email attached .jpg files, and I can switch forth and back between my mails - in the other app - and my calendar in the Outlook app.

Reading the forums, this is an ongoing issue. please add an option to select image attach or embed. if this is not possible then please let's user know so we can move to a different email app

Why can't I now send a Word document as an attachment without converting it to any other form as I could with the old version of Outlook. I thought updates were supposed to provide improvements!!!

So it's been over two years now since this problem was first brought to your attention Microsoft. I'm a very patient man but if this is not fixed soon I will be moving back to gmail. This is simply absurd.
This is my only reason to not use the Outlook App. I recently switched back to Gmail App
This is also a problem on iPhones. The only email server that it will not include attached photos is Outlook. Really ******* me off. Saving an image and then attaching is extra work and time wasting.
This is a crucial fix that needs to be actioned sooner than later. My entire organisation is fed up and frustrated with the inability to attach images as it causes many issues when viewing across different devices.
Thank goodness they merged the two problems they can't solve. Now it is easier to see what hasn't been fixed and ignored.
i want it

I now have clients that want to migrate back to G Suite because of this. Please fix ASAP or you will loose many subscriptions. Works fine on iPhone but Outlook for Android remains a problem.
