    When sharing a picture or image from another app to Outlook or attaching directly within the app, the picture is embedded or displayed inline in the email and not attached. Other attachments like PDF are attached.

    I would like to propose the default behaviour is changed to attaching the file or providing an option in the general settings to change the behaviour. If an option to change is provided, please allow the Intune app configuration policy for Outlook Intune change this setting.

    There are several reasons for changing this:
    1. The images from phone memory generally have high resolution and are attached at the high resolution (even when choosing reduced size). This causes the recipient to open the email and see a rather large picture. This issue is further compounded when there are multiple pictures.
    2. Some companies have email security policies that strip out embedded images. Since there is no option to have the image as an attachment, the emails come in to these recipients with no pictures. If a company requires their employees to use only approved apps (eg Outlook), this forces users to use their desktop application or share the file to some other cloud source before sending a shared link (not always possible).
    3. It can be awkward to add text to the email after attaching pictures especially if you do a share to Outlook rather than typing the email and then choosing attach.
    4. When the recipient receives the email, embedded or inline images can be difficult to save depending on the email client. Also if sending multiple pictures, the 'save all attachments' in the Outlook desktop client does not exist for embedded or inline images. As a result, working with embedded or inline pictures is generally less productive.
    5. Microsoft offers this option for Outlook for Windows. Users expect to see similar behaviour between platforms.

    There are multiple ideas that ask for this functionality. I suggest that the admin or moderator merge all of these ideas into this one.

    This idea is not for received emails with inline picture and saving them, that idea is below. However, that functionality might be built at the same time due to how the app interacts with the image attachments in general.

    Some companies have email security policies that strip out embedded images. Since there is no option to have the image as an attachment, the emails come in with no pictures. Please change this default behaviour to attach instead or give an option. If you create an option, allow this to be controlled by Intune MDM.
