We have just upgraded to the latest version of Office 365/Exchange online and we are using Windows 7 (32 bit) with IE9 and I can replicate the problem on every PC in our school.
The multiple-attachment functionality existed and worked fine on the version of Office 365 we were running last week, so I think I am pretty safe to say that its the upgrade which has broken this feature!!!
If you feel that we are missing something then I would be interested to hear where we are going wrong and what, specifically, you are doing to get it to work?

Just out of interest, WHAT are the problems people are experiencing.
Ive just upgraded our test account to see what doesn't work
Also the spell checker doesn't work on IE9 either.
I can however, confirm that the multiple selection works on IE10.

Tried on a Windows 7 running IE10, and OWA happily attached multiple files at once. Have you tried upgrading one of your machines to IE10 to see if that behaves, or tried another browser as suggested.
Just had a long conversation with MS Support who were certain that IE9 should work for multiple files, but their technician could not get it to work either!
So, after much faffing about he recommended we start to use IE10!
I have installed IE10 on a test PC and I can confirm that multiple attachments do work (for us) on IE10.
Thanks for everyone's advice so far.
This goes from bad to worse!!!
I upgraded a couple of test PCs to IE10 and it does indeed fix the multiple attachments problem. However, another problem has now reared its head!
When using IE10 I have found that after a user logs out from their Office 365/Outlook online account and then tries to log back in it doesn't work!
All they get is the sign-in screen and the a loading page which just hangs forever and they cannot get in to their email.
Tried it on both test PCs with different Office 365 users and the same problem is apparent.
Downgraded one of the PCs back to IE9 and, voila, that problem is gone.......!!
I was a fan of Office 365, but this latest version is full of problems......
@jamesbmarshall - I think one feature still missing is being able to save e-mails, rather than just archiving them into a folder. Overall though the latest Office 365 is good and works perfectly with IE10. I agree there are some good improvements and I tell my users that it'll remain the same for the next 3/4 years, so get used to it! People always dislike change.

Yes, I did think about Chrome.
It just seems ridiculous that a Microsoft product works better with a competitors browser than one of their own!
How to win friends and influence people...NOT!!!
I have to agree, it doesn't help users still on XP with IE8 and Vista with IE9. Some would say it was deliberate and really Microsoft no doubt could fix IE9 sooner than the end of 2013.
I know! I too was surprised by what someone was telling me to. I really couldn't believe how their own browser wouldn't work with their own products.
Is using Outlook not an option? It works brilliantly with that. Standard look and feel for all our staff and it's much better than using it web based.
I don't think so, it might require some DNS changes so that the Autodiscover feature works correctly but I don't think SSO is needed. I can't say for sure though as we do have single sign on.
We are having headaches getting Outlook 2010 to connect to 365 correctly but that's down to our ISP blocking something. We are trying to get this sorted but it's hard as I don't really know what connections need to be open!! It works spot on when I'm at home using my home broadband!
The biggest bug bear for us with the new 365 is the lack of spell check support for older browsers (below IE10). We don't want firefox or chrome on machines but almost half of our workstations still run XP and are therefore limited to IE8! This is really causing some problems - why did MS decide to change the way this works?? It really seems like a step backwards to me.
Also, it REALLY REALLY is a memory hog on the Web App!!
