Can I drag attachments in Outlook to a browser drag and drop file area?

Does anyone know if it's possible to write your drag and drop code to handle outlook attachments?  I noticed the event.dataTransfer.files is empty when you drop it from Outlook, and the effectAllowed is changed from "all" to "copyLink", so it's easy enough to tell when it was dropped from Outlook, but I couldn't find any file data in the dataTransfer section.

in short, no

the CF_HDROP format is needed for drag and drop, and it appears Outlook does not provide that functionality
