Mail app on iPad does not allow multiple file attachment when composing an email.

iOS version 9.1 (13B143)

Is it possible to attach multiple files using the native email app on the iPad? I do not have an option to attach files, but only photos and videos.

I downloaded the Outlook app from the App Store. When I compose a message, and try attaching files, it brings me to the following screen (see screenshot). I use OneDrive business to store my documents, but I do not have an option to chose One Drive business from here. There is OneDrive, but when I try to log in with my regular OneDrive business account, but it failed to log me in. Can a OneDrive business account be used to log into OneDrive?

Other than that, what are my options if I want to compose an email and attach multiple files?

onedrive for business and onedrive have little in common other than the word 'onedrive' onedrive 4 business uses a separate app. Are you using this app?

Yes, I am using one drive for business. However, when trying to attach files using the outlook app the only option to browse for files is to one drive and not one drive business.

The integration of Outlook.com with OneDrive for Business is still a work in progress and Microsoft may release an update later this year.

"Outlook for iOS connects to OneDrive, Dropbox, iCloud, Google Drive and Box. We will be updating Outlook for iOS to connect to OneDrive for Business later this year."

For the time being, you need to upload the document via the free ondrive app or other cloud providers as mentioned above which are currently supported by Outlook.com.
