    Can't send 'page or link by e-mail'

    When I use the File menu and select Send, the options 'Page by e-mail' & 'Link by e-mail' are grayed out. What gives? I used to be able to right-click and have this option but not with Vista I gather. The other thread I read did not resolve the issue....help!

    Hi soozeeq2,

    Welcome to Vista Forums.

    See if setting Windows Mail and Internet Explorer default associations back to them will allow the options to not be grayed out. Just select Internet Explorer afterwards and repeat.

    Thanks for the feedback. I did the default switch to IE and it worked!
