If they select Explorer view, they can either:
1. Right-click a document  and choose Send to | Mail Recipient
2. Drag a document into an e-mail  message, or

configured at the bottom.

document  event sink is a simple .NET Class Library. It can do anything
that any other .NET assembly can do. I would have assumed that you would
simply send an SMTP email to whatever person or group needs to be notified
about the document upload and/or needs a copy of the document as an
