There are three options for moving Emails to OURDrive

Option 1: Dragging and dropping an email from Outlook into an OURDrive library folder will move it to OURDrive and delete it from Outlook

Select the email you wish to move to OURDrive. Drag-and-drop it onto the folder (OURDrive library) in your Outlook navigation pane.

Option 2: Use the ribbon button

Select the email you wish to move to OURDrive. From the ribbon, select the Home tab and click the top half of the Move to OURDrive icon to use your favourite library. Or click on the arrow to select a different library.

Option 3: right-click on a message and choose Move to OURDrive from the right-click menu.

The Save to SharePoint dialog will be displayed. Locate and click the location where you wish to move the item to in the left-hand pane.

After drag and drop, ribbon or right-click

The Save to SharePoint dialog will be displayed. The folder where you dropped the email will be selected in the left-hand Location pane.

From the right-hand pane, set the Content Type (usually OU Email) and fill in metadata properties as necessary. These are often pre-filled for you, so you may not need to change them. Click Save.

The file is moved to OURDrive and a confirmation message appears. Click the Close button to close the message.

The original email is now deleted (in Deleted Items) in Outlook. A deletion category has also been applied to it to show that it was sent to OURDrive.
