Am I missing something?  Should I be able to drag and attachment or an email message from my outlook to the drop area of FileUltimate?

As of current version, drag and drop feature works like this:
  1. You can completely drag and drop within FileManager, files or folders.
  2. For uploading, you need to drag and drop files from your desktop to the Upload window. If you drop into the FileManager it will not work. Also you can only drag files not folders.
  3. You cannot drag and drop from FileManager to your desktop. You need to double click or click Download button to download files.
Note that these limitations were mainly caused by the browser standards. As the FileManager runs inside the browser, it’s limited by browser’s permissions/features.
However recent browsers implemented new features so allowing number 2 is on our to-do list. Number 3 is more complicated but we will check if it’s possible now.

Thank you, but my question wasn't really addressed. I want to drag a message from Microsoft Outlook into the upload window. I also want to drag an attachment from Microsoft Outlook into the upload window in filemanager.

For future reference:
The problem is Microsoft Outlook does not allow dragging attachments to the browser so it’s not specific to our product.

Please test it. Can you drag&drop attachments to any kind of web site/application in the browser?

As far as I know you can only drag&drop attachments to your desktop or Windows Explorer.
