Kendo Upload - Drag and Drop from Outlook Deletes Email

Prerequisites: Chrome browser, Outlook 2016 or 365

Steps to Replicate

From Outlook, click to hold down on an email. Drag and drop it to the upload area.

Expected Behavior: The e-mail is copied to the upload widget and uploaded.

Actual Behavior: E-mail is deleted from the folder it existed in and moved to "Deleted Items". If it was copied from "Deleted Items", it is permanently deleted.

Telerik has stated that they "do not support" this feature (source: I would like this feature to be supported.
