    Will Onenote 2010 allow me to drag one note content to Outlook? I would like
    to store onenote pages in Outlook folders much like I can store word/excel
    files in there presently.

    Not really. You can store .one files in an Outlook store, but you cannot
    sync changes to that location. You would have to copy it out of the OL
    store, make your changes, then exit Onenote and drag the new copy of the .one
    file back into the store.

    NO!
    Except sending Tasks from ON to Outlook it's just a one-way-street
    (Outlook to OneNote).
    There are no features for dragging things from ON to OL.

    And I really do not know *where* in Outlook you might want to keep/store
    content from ON. :-( :-(

    Outlook isn't an especially good file system anyhow - most of my clients are
    trying to figure out how to get documents, files and attachments OUT of
    Outlook, not into it.

    The problem with storing files IN Outlook is that the Outlook data store
    gets inefficient (and on older versions actually corrupt) when it approaches
    very large sizes. Accordingly it just doesn't make sense to stuff it full
    of documents and files.

    Use links instead, Outlook will be happier. :)

    Oh, offhand I could think of a couple of reasons. What about taking
    data from a OneNote note and putting it into an email? Or maybe into
    the comments area of a contact?
