The new Outlook.com

Can't attach files - STILL!

Outlook.com has become a failure. It would seem that 90% of the time I'm unable to send an email with an attachment as I get to notifications to say either "The following files couldn't be attached" or "this message can't be saved at the moment". If this is a lame attempt to have me use the cloud or go 'pro' it has failed. I will now go to Gmail. MS - you're becoming a legacy and not current and vital!!

    Hotmail useless cannot attach files to emails and its clearing off or blocking received attachments. Thinking of closing email account. Very POOR programming.

    Works on IOS devices but knobbled on Win 10. Microsoft?

    the red text warning comes up EVERY OTHER EMAIL saying can't be attached right now, can't send right now... outlook is officially totally broken.

    The File is Too Large to Send as an Attachment? Total BS. Same file as I've been sending for YEARS? Today, no? Use The Cloud? !@#$ no. You lost me.

    Can't attach files. Again. Send files to THE CLOUD?!?! I think not. Outlook is a waste of time. NEXT!! Gmail....? It's lookin' that way.

    Hi Outlook, nearly every time I attach files to an email it says Outlook can't do this right now try again later. Please fix it.

    I have had this same problem on multiple occasions. Just now, too. I tried the one persons suggestion to go to the cloud and then select the computer option but it still doesn't work. I have to use Yahoo or Gmail to send the attachments (usually PDF).

    hey I just figured it out!!! Even though the option to open my computer files is there, you have to select the option of browse cloud options which will open up and then inside there i found my computer to attach files on my computer...if that's how we are do it from now on, then get rid of both options and rename it if it going to go to all in one location...at least i finally found the loop hole...
