i've done all this and still all I get is a web page address in the email. No content. Your help is appreciated but this is frustrating the hell out of me. I used to have vistas and this process was simple.

Are you clicking "send page" or "send link"?

After you follow the instructions in this forum, you will be able to send a page by clicking "File" in the upper left corner of your screen. Then click "Send" in the drop-down llist. Then click "Page by E-mail". These are all left clicks - no right clicking involved.
