Turning Off Email Attachments from Box in Outlook

One somewhat annoying thing about Box for Office in MS Outlook is that it always wants you to upload files into Box before attaching them to emails.

When you go to attach a file from your computer, you see this message from Box:

Attach files with Box

If you click "No" it will just attach the file as usual, but the next time you create an email and add an attachment, it asks you again!

To permanently stop this behavior, do the following:

  1. Go to Outlook
  2. Find the "Settings" button for Box for Office in the upper righthand corner of the Outlook window
  3. Click "Never" under "User Box when attaching local file, and then click "Save"
    Box for Office Settings
