Drag and drop file into Outlook from AIR application

I am hoping to see if this would be possible with the Adobe AIR API. We currently have a desktop AIR application that clients install in order to facilitate certain operations triggered via a web application (such as opening files directly from the web).

One of the actions we are requested to support is the ability to drag and drop files from our web application directly into Outlook and have the file added as an attachment. I saw the documentation at Adobe Flash Platform * Dropping file promises and was wondering if this might be a possibility, or if there was some other method of performing this.

We are trying to get around the fact that users now have to download a document to their desktop before being able to attach in Outlook.

Thanks for any assistance.
