Is this full end to end encryption ?

If I send an encrypted email from outlook using the add-in
  • is the content of the email and attachment ( if applicable) encrypted before leaving my computer , then transmitted securely to my sharefile account where it is encrypted again at rest ?
OR
  • is the content of the email and attachment ( if applicable) simply transmitted securely to my sharefile account where it is encrypted again at rest ?
In either case the original email then being replaced on my computer with the sharefile encrypted email message which is transmitted normally (without reference to ShareFile) from my/my webhosting mailserver.

What I am really trying to ask is whether sharefile encrypted emails are akin to using something like PGP to actually recode the email message before any transmission or more a question of ensuring secure upload of the original email to Sharefile servers where it is encrypted at rest ( and decrypted when required for the recipient ?
