Microsoft notes on a support page that attachments will count against a customer's OneDrive data starting February 1, 2023. The change won't impact the mailbox storage amount, according to Microsoft, but it may reduce the available storage on OneDrive.

Customers who reach the cloud storage quota may have the ability to send and receive emails using the email service disrupted, according to Microsoft.

Customers may check the available storage and the total amount of available storage on OneDrive or in users may delete email attachments to free up disk space on the service. Attachments may be downloaded to the local system manually before that for backup purposes. Another option that customers have is to use a backup tool to download all mails. Programs like the desktop email client Mozilla Thunderbird or the free MailStore Home may do that almost effortlessly.
