S-Drive Email allows you to send email with attached S-Drive files from any record, not just the record you’re sending from. S-Drive Email is used within the S-Drive component when files are selected and the email envelope icon is clicked. However S-Drive Email can also be a standalone component, as described here.

S-Drive Email supports email threading when using Email-to-Case. Replies to email sent will show in the Case activity history.
