I am using Sharepoint Company site
When I attach a file using the Outlook email client and the "Insert > File Attach" in a new email, the files takes a very long time to attach (and may not attach at all)
The outlook client is office 365 2016
I get a notification that a file is being downloaded

If I attach a downloaded file (downloaded from Sharepoint) the attachment is very quick

It is obviously a sync issue
Any ideas?
