After the upgrade to windows seven, I no longer have the ability to send page by email or send link by email. I have done some goggling and come up empty.

Mail - Windows Live

Go to the above. and download Windows Live Mail

As I have always done, I copy and paste the URL

For the page itself just right click and it says send by Windows Live Mail

That would work but I use MS office Outlook 2007 as my primary email client. Any ideas for MS outlook.

I fixed my send link by e-mail.......Go to the tool bar (where the home house is) and press right mouse. Click on "Customize"......Click on ADD REMOVE COMMANDS.....Look for the SEND LINK or SEND PAGE BY E-MAIL in the left pane...and click ADD. You will now see this option on your tool bar. Please note it will be a stand alone command and not under the "PAGE". Mine appeared to the left of the HOME house

I've been struggling with this issue since I bought my new Dell with Windows 7. I used to be able to select "page" in the toolbar and "send link by e-mail" was there. It still is, but is grayed out. I use an external e-mail client, Incredimail, and thought it was not recognizing that application. I followed your instructions, added the link to the toolbar, and voila! Back in business! Thanks so much! I guess that's the joy of new versions of Windows--some things are ALWAYS going to change.
