    In MAC application Automator:
    1. create a new: Service (File->new->Service) or select
    Quick Action (File->new->Quick Action) (depends on what Mac OS version you have)

    2. At the top right, make sure you select that the "Services/Workflow receives current" is set to selected ‘Files or folders’ in ‘Finder’.
    3. From the left Action menu, search for Run Applescript and drag that to the window on the right. (it is under Utilities in MAC Catalina OS)
    4. For the script insert (copy & paste):

    on run {input, parameters}
    set SelectedItems to input

    tell application "Microsoft Outlook"
    set newMessage to make new outgoing message
    tell newMessage
    repeat with aFile in SelectedItems
    make new attachment with properties {file:aFile}
    end repeat
    end tell
    open newMessage
    get newMessage
    end tell
    return input
    end run

    5. Then save the service (File->Save). The name of the file will be the name in the Finder right-click menu! (I used: ‘Attach to Outlook e-mail.workflow’)

    6. Done.

    When you go to Finder, select one or more files, and then right-click. Go to "Services" and should see ‘Attach to Outlook e-mail’ within that sub-menu.
