While sending the email through invoice --> "Send By Email" button, i am getting below warning meassge.

Access Denied

The requested operation cannot be completed due to security restrictions. Please contact your system administrator.

(Document type: Directory, Operation: write)

Note : I have logged as a some other user. The user has most of the permission like  as an admin(without "settings" permission).

Sending invoice email, i have attached the additional document(pdf) with invoice pdf file. Additional document is created by admin user.

You need to select Knowledge/User group for your users.

To check the access rights available for a model:
     1. Go to Settings --> Technical --> Database Structure --> Models
     2. Search for Directory (or model name)
     3. Go to Access rights page/tab.
     4. Here you can see the rights provided for the particular group.
     5. enable the access rights by adding group "Knowledge/User".

Directory model (document.direcory) can be written by users that has Administration / Settings or Knowledge / Users access right by default.  Have you checked if the user have Knowledge / Users access?
