thank you



Do you mean that if the teacher sends an email from anywhere that is even from a system outside the salesforce application, then too the email of recommendation or document sent by the teacher should be attached to the student record.

I think salesforce cannot track the emails or documents sent from outside the system.

Though there a may be a workaround by using the email to case facility, you can ask teacher to mark a copy to support@domain_name.com , which in case web to case feature is enable , then a case will be recorded in your salesforceorg.

After this you may have a synchronize documents button on whose click you read all the cases created and may from subject line say has the student name you can add a document to the respective student record.

Did this answer your question? If not, let me know what didn't work, or if so, please mark it solved.
