This is working with Edge, would be nice to make it work with IE and Chrome.

The issue seems to be a Microsoft limitation and it is marked as Won't fix in their tracking system here-

Our customers are asking for this.

This is definitely a limitation of Outlook. There are a a couple of utilities on the market to let you do this though eg. Outlook2Web ( ) and Mail2Share ( ) (works to Sharepoint only)

It would be nice to have a drag and drop feature from Outlook to the file upload for email attachments.  I have had several requests for this.

I spent countless hours trying to get this to work with a web application. Definitely a need!

Hi guys,

Unfortunately the current level of technologies makes implementing this feature impossible because the browsers don't treat mails dragged from outlook as files. If this behavior changes in the future we will add support for it.

Bob's suggestion that this limitation is imposed by Outlook seems to be true. Limited testing shows that other HTML5 upload widgets (e.g. in gmail) don't accept attachments dragged directly from Outlook.  Here's a possible reason:

Isn't this a limitation of the drop target that Outlook is allowing and not an issue with RadAsyncUpload on HTML5 browsers?

I think that Outlook is the issue here?  Any other thougths on this?

Very well needed feature

We have a requirement where the business is asking us to provide the Drag and Drop functonality from Outlook to the web or windows applicaiton. It seems like there is a huge demand for this with a lot of other organizations. 

It can be a very good selling feature for Telerik as well!!!$$$

I agree with the previous comments

We could use this feature as well.

This would be a great addition to allow people to add emails to a web page easily.
