Drag and drop from outlook attachment into container field

Should I be able to drag and drop an attachment from an e-mail in outlook into a FileMaker 12 container field?

 

It looks like it should work - the mouse icon changes to a small plus to indicate that the file is going to be inserted, but when I release the mouse the file doesn't get inserted...

 

The database is hosted on FileMaker server, and the container field is defined to use secure external storage.

 

Dragging the same file from my desktop works, but not when I drag it directly from outlook?

 

Cheers,

 

Paul.
