Most email providers have a limit on size of file can be attached, pictures in high definition can exceed that limit easily, so can a video file... a whole file of camera pics can be uploaded to skydrive and a link to them sent in the email, makes it easy. :)

Another advantage is that if you upload e.g. a PDF, it can be read directly in the browser with the web app.

Example - unfortunately the hyperlinks do not work any more since they changed to OneDrive, they used to.

Want to send an attachment on an email reply
I cannot see how to do this. Yes, I can right-click a file and choose to email it but it always goes to a new email, not to the one I'm replying to. I can work around it with the copy and paste routine. That sends the file as a picture on the email - not as an attachment.
