Endpoint Known Issues:

Workaround: None.


From what I understand, the issue with some of these webmail services is exaclty what you noted, they are offloading a portion of the work to different services. That is, you upload a file, but the browser actually does not do the job, it is passed to a child service (sometimes windows services), and delivered. 

Engineering is aware of the issue, hence the "Known Issue". Hope this helps!
