Drag and Drop Files into Outlook 2010 "Mail and Post Items" Folder?

Hi

We are moving from Windows XP / Office 2003 to Windows 7 / Office 2010
Huge change and of course people try everything that is possible...and impossible, things that you wouldn't of think of doiing.

But yes it seem you can actualy take files, in that case PDF files on your desktop and drag and drop them into an Outlook folder directly.

It doesn't show as an MSG file, it realy show's itself in Outlook as a PDF and you can double click it to open it.

It probably has the same system as Windows Explorer does

We have Symantec Enterprise Vault to Archive emails witch will automaticly do so after a predetermined period of time
We can archive the PDF file and it will result by creating a blank email from yourself with a PDF attached to it

So it does seem to work, i don't see any bugs or error or problem soo far.
But that is "so far"
I can't find anywhere on the internet a post or something that tells you "yes you can do that with Outlook 2010"

Anyone has an opinion on that matter understanding that everyone has differents ways of working...

Thank you
