Upload Outlook attachments to SharePoint subfolders
I am trying to encourage the practice of uploading attachments as SharPoint links, but my company can't have every attached document sitting in the root folder of the document library. We need a way to select from the entire group library folder tree so these documents are organized.

I can't believe you can't do this either. Madness
If Microsoft want a truly integrated, collaborative set of tools in Office 365 its madness that we cannot upload attachments or emails directly from Outlook into Sharepoint. I can't believe this uservoice doesn't have more votes.
Also see the thread: Make saved Outlook attachments visible to Teams
Vote there as well!
It would be very nice to be able to save to other libraries/folders that the default 'Documents' one in a Team site form Outlook.
How can you allow it to see the Team site but not any of the folder structure and just assume, sure all attachments people have will want to be stored in that one place?

At this moment from Outlook only team sites can be selected and files from Outlook are uploaded to the root folder of the Team site. It would be great if we can select the 'General' channel (folder) or any channel that is available and the attachment(s) are then placed in the corresponding document library.
It would be great if I could choose a folder when I upload attachments from Outlook.
