Send documents as attachments – not as links

OOTB SharePoint on-premise functionality doesn't allow you to send files as attachments to your email. You should download it to your local drive, or you can send a link to file. In SharePoint Online you can share the document. However with Email As Attachment web part you enable your SharePoint users to attach any file or group of files directly to their message. Sometimes this feature is extremely required. Especially when communicating with external users, and exchanging important documents with them.

Send multiple selected documents in archive

If there are too many files to be sent in one email, you can add them all in just one click as one archive. Simply and swiftly.
