Please don't auto-create the email attachments folder
Please stop with the folder creation!!!!!!!!!!!!
I choose what goes in my drive!
If i wanted a folder called 'email attachments' i would
create one .. its annoying having to delete them everytime i come bk to onedrive
This is now resolved. Thanks for your patience.
This folder is an absolute nuisance. I have no email services linked to my OneDrive or my Microsoft account in general, but here it is forced upon me. I'm sorry but I have an Android phone which is fully backed up on Google Drive, yet I don't see the backup files and folders mixed with files and folders I have created, let alone any other folders or files that I can't delete. Surely Microsoft can think of another way of implementing this new feature only for those users who want it. It's absolutely scandalous that they take the liberty of deciding how we should keep our data.
The official reply I got from OneDrive support is pathetic: "Unfortunately there is no way to delete this folder as its by design on One Drive." How come is it by design, since when? There used to be a "Photos" and a "Music" folders "by design", but those were easy to remove. This one is impossible to remove permanently!
"However we have taken this as a feedback... We'll add it to the list of ideas we're considering." - well, how very generous of you! It's not like we're paying or anything, sure you can just do whatever you feel like to your customers. I don't even know when deleting a folder became a feature request. Such disappointment. With all the things that still need to be fixed on OneDrive you go out there and do this... what a shame.
I use this a lot.. Just clicking 'Save attachment to onedrive' from my email sends the documents/attachements here.. I dont have to select a folder or download and upload to save my document to onedrive..
But I can see how his can be annoying to others. One compromise would be if this folder is only created(if not present) when you click on 'Save attachments to onedrive' option..
I concur. Is there a way to DELETE this? Permanently?

I`m feeling insecure about what function the “attachments” folder that is suddenly automatically being created in OneDrive for Business is going to serve, as there has been no information about it so far. Since we have thousands of users, the impact is extremely big.
I would wish for you to quickly release information about this function.
Please stop creating this folder automatically.
I do not want this folder in my OneDrive.
Agree, get rid of this folder!
I agree about the "Email attachments" folder. I have deleted it at least 5 times in the past week and it keeps coming back. If I wanted it there, I would have created it myself.
Please, don't pollute my folder with automatic folders!!! Think before you do something that stupid!!!
I don't want this folder either - it's my "real estate" I'm paying for!
Agree. Who thought this was a good idea ? Need an option to deselect this annoying "feature"!!!

It saves email attachments in a public folder. Ridiculous
I agree this folder is unnecessary. Also it is to easy to attach these email attachments inadvertently.
I have the same problem, why are these folders being automatically created?
