Adding Attachments - Updated - 5/21/13
Outlook, just like with images, does not like the Drag and Drop option for attaching files.
To add an attachment, start your email by clicking New.
Write your email, etc. When you are ready to attach, click the paperclip at the top of the screen near where you press Send.
Attaching in Different Browsers
I'm going to show the two main ways to upload attachments, hopefully this will cover whatever browser you are using at the time.
When you click the Paper Clip (Attach) button, An Open file window will appear, locate the file you want to attach on your computer. Click Open to Attach the file to your email message.
As a side note, I like the three column view when I choose my files because it affords me the opportunity to click once on the file and see a small preview of the file I'm looking for. This is great when you have several files with similar names.
Adding Multiple Attachments
You can click the paperclip and use your Shift/Command Keys to select multiple emails to attach before pressing Open. Click first email message then hold Shift key down and click last email message in a series and all messages in between will be selected. If you hold the Command key down while clicking you can select multiple messages not necessarily in a series to attach. When you select multiple files the previews don't show though.
