This is **** ridiculous. What <Removed Profanity/Name Calling> came up with this protocol? It's useless. 

First you **** your Windows Phone users and then we were led to believe Android could be made to function like WP. Guess what, it doesn't. You must really despise your customers.

I have noted that sharing the picture from the gallery (select picture --> share ---> Outlook) efectivelly creates an email message with the picture attached rather than inline in the body. Anyway this needs to be fixed ASAP.

This does work! But doesnt work so well when replying to another email... in which case printing the photo as .pdf and attaching as a FILE and not a PHOTO will work.

See link here and everyone please vote! 

This would also be useful to be able to resize pictures before emailing

This is really ridiculous that this is still a problem. The only way I got around it was by saving my pics to Onedrive. I could then select them from within the email with the option of inserting inline or attaching. Way too many steps!!!!

This is not true I in the past have always been able to send a photo as an attachement.  Something has changes and it is much more clumbsy.  I customers don't want to receive photos with in the email it affects the layout in the email and it increase the amount of time correct.
