Want to bring the sharing power of Dropbox to your Microsoft Outlook inbox? The Dropbox add-in for Microsoft Outlook makes it easy. Now you can skip the big, cumbersome attachments and send a simple shared link instead. Here are three ways it can help you save time whenever you need to send a large file by email.

  • Share any file, big or small. Stop worrying about the size of email attachments.
  • Keep everyone in sync. Send a Dropbox link so they always have the latest version.
  • Control who sees what. Limit who can access a shared link without leaving Outlook.

Once you’ve enabled the add-in, a Dropbox icon will appear on the ribbon in Outlook when you’re reading or composing an email. Clicking this icon will open a pane from which you can select files or folders you want to add from your Dropbox. In the body of the email, you’ll see a shared link to the items you added. And when you receive attachments in Outlook, you‘ll see a prompt to “Save to Dropbox.”

The Dropbox add-in is available for customers with Office 365 or Outlook.com mailboxes, using a recent version of Outlook for Windows, Outlook for Mac, or Outlook on the web.
