Microsoft Office 2013: Ten apps from the Store for SharePoint encourages users to share documents via Microsoft SharePoint rather than emailing them.

When emailing documents, prompts the user to upload the document to SharePoint and send a link instead.

Benefits include reducing storage use because the document is not duplicated on an email server and increased security as users can only open SharePoint documents they are authorised to view.

Future versions of the app will include the ability to save emails to SharePoint.
