Directly attach a file to Outlook that is stored only in Confluence (how to?)

Normally I open an outlook message. Browse my PC to find the attachment I want, and then send it to someone.

Now we store many docs exclusively in Confluence. But the person I am sending to does not use Confluence.

Is there a direct way for me to attach that document to my Outlook message?(other than going to Confluence, saving the file to the PC, then attaching the file to the Outlook message)

Hey Mauri, please check if the WebDAV functionality (if you're running on Server) could be a possible solution for you

Thanks Max - I am looking into it with my admin. Looks like what I want though.

Thanks Max - My admin showed me how to map to confluence (assign a drive letter). This worked and it is fantastic. All the benefits of the old system (easy to drill to and duplicate files and drag and rename etc) but all the benefits of confluence too (searchability, revision history, labels, etc)

Hi Mauri,

I'm with the Comalatech team, and we have an app that might solve your problem.

Comala Share It lets you create shareable links you can send to users outside Confluence. When they open the link in a web browser they'll see your content rendered exactly how it is inside Confluence. This way you can simply email people links to your content. 

Let me know if I can answer any questions about it for you.

Awesome, glad you got it sorted out!
