This is for SharePoint 2013? Do the same things need to work for 2016?

Link provided doesn't work.

Yeah, I think it could be related to the mailbox: attachements may be automatically saved from your email. But there is no such option in the mail settings. 

I got the policy from director about OneDrive acccess permission for low level employee. Do some body have any idea or procedure to block Personal site for some users but this group user can still access TeamSite ( SharePoint).
