Not sure if the OP will see this but for anyone else who ends up here via Searching...

You should be able to drag and drop items between email messages in Outlook; it may be that a couple of Windows files haven't registered properly and so you can't. To try this fix:

Close Outlook, click 'Start' then click 'Run' and paste the following two lines (one line at a time, hitting ENTER after each one) into the run box.

Regsvr32 /i ole32.dll
Regsvr32 /i shell32.dll

(If you see an 'invalid entry point' message (or similar) after the first don't worry- it should still work!)

Open Outlook and see if you can drag and drop / copy and paste attachments.

Hi, here is the accurate Answer of this problem.

At first You need to copy the embedded image and Then.....

paste into an image editor like Paint or Photoshop. All Windows users have Paint on their machine (under Programs | Accessories). Open up the image editor to a blank image then paste.
And then You can save in Your Drive.

I hope it will be helpful for you.

You need to SAVE the attachment, and attach it to the new email. You cannot copy and paste those, as they are merely links to the temp file where it is stored, and sending a link to something that doesn't exist on their computer won't work.

Once more, save the attachment from one email somewhere, and go to the other email, and attach it to it.

Good luck and don't forget to mark this as resolved!
