Yesterday, we covered about new Forgotten Attachment Detector feature of Hotmail, today we’re going to cover how to send files using SkyDrive, that means your files attached will be stored in your SkyDrive (update:now OneDrive) account and links will be sent to your friends via Hotmail for convenient download instead of receiving users suffering with big attachments in their inboxes and hit with limits of their email system.
Enable Always Send files using SkyDrive option of Hotmail
Though SkyDrive is integrated into Hotmail, but by default, new Hotmail is set to use SkyDrive for large attachments and office docs only which you can change and set “Always Send file using SkyDrive” .
For this, sign into Hotmail

Click on Attachments option on right side for Writing email which opens another page
for you to choose option from ‘Always Send files using SkyDrive’, ‘Always Send files as attachments’ and ‘Let Hotmail choose’ (use Skype for large attachments and office docs ), select the first one and save the changes.
