Sending email with attachment

I'm running version 7.5 and when I add a comment to an issue and in that comment I attach a document, I was hoping that there is a way to have that attachment get emailed to the notification group (watchers) as a raw attachment rather than just a link in the email where the link points back to the attachment on the system.

My goal is trying to eliminate the need for the end receiver of that email to not have to log back in to read the attachment.


Any sugggestions on how I could enable this?

I'm capable of writing custom plugins and accessing the REST API if anyone has a pattern that has worked for them in the past to do this kind of thing.

There is not such a feature out of the box. But you could use an add-on like Adaptivist Scriptrunner or JEMH (I am sure there are other add-ons available).

If you can write custom plugins. 

With custom plugin you could write a post-function or listener.
