Does anyone know of any customisations or add-ons that will allow you to send a document from a document library as an email attachment, rather than merely be able to SEND TO, E-MAIL A LINK.

This is for SharePoint Online.

share|improve this question - solution to send doc in attachments. currently is not for SPOnline. But it's not using serverside code - all logic in JS, thus I believe it can be converted to SPOnline.

I believe using java script on client side is not best approach to send e-mail with attachment. For SharePoint Online I see two approaches: Workflow or Web Service – Anton Khritonenkov Apr 15 '14 at 6:35

You can create list level workflow and use workflow action to send e-mail. Have a look at third-party workflow action called "Workflow Activity Pack for SharePoint Online".

It has workflow action "Send email with attachments". This is a paid product, but I think this may be what you need.

You can find example and details in this blog post.

P.S.: I'm member of developers team of this product and I like to implement new features =)
