I am using Internet Explorer and want to be able to send a page from IE using Outlook as my email client.  When I right click on the page I want to send there is no box that allows me to email this article.  Is there some else I can do as I have already gone to the Tools within IE and made Outlook the default for the email client?

Beaucairej,

You can email a page or email a link to a page by clicking on File at the top of your IE window, choosing Send, and then select the option you wish to use.  From what you described in your question the option you are most interested in is probably "Page by email...".

Let me know if you have any questions or need more information.

Greetings, Beaucairej !

Also make sure Outlook is your default email handler. In IE, go to Tools > Options > Programs. By Email, make sure Microsoft Outlook is selected.

Best wishes!

When i am on a certain page there are no headings on the top of the page only the page itself.  If I have google installed & I right click on that page it allows me to email it but I have to use gmail (google mail) which means I also need an additional account.  This is not what I am looking to do.  What I want to do is be able to right click on that page & have an option that i can email it to a customer.

War1; I have checked the program opptions in IE & they are set to MS Outlook as the defaul email client.

As a note on other pages & with Yahoo installed i can right click on that page & Outlook opens & i can email it to a customer.

Maybe a new option in Google that is forcing people to use GMail instead of their default email client.

Google Talk and Gmail Notifier have options to make Gmail the default email handler. You may have set it inadvertantly.  To disable it, go to the option menu of these programs and change to NOT have Gmail the default mail handler.

I did that as well & it still makes no difference.  I even stup down IE & then restarted the PC.  Still no luck,  IT seems as though Google wants gmail to be the only one sending email.

Do you have Google Talk or Gmail Notifier installed?  Uninstall them.  Restart the computer. Now check if Outlook is the default mail handler.

Neither one of these were installed.

I can right click on a Google page and sent via my default email client, not Gmail.

You wrote, "If I have google installed".   Do you have Google toolbar installed? Anything of Google installed on your computer?  Or do you mean you are on a Google webpage?

If the former, uninstall whatever that you have of Google and test if you can send properly.

When I had Google installed & I right click on a page it comes up with GMail as the only way to send the page.  If I remove Google & have no other add in on the machine I can not send the page via email.  If I put Yahoo on it I can send the page via email & use Outlook as it is my default email client.  I would like to be able to use Google as this was the case before my system crashed.

You are referring to Google Toolbar?  Check in the Google Toolbar option menu and see there is anything to make Gmail the default mail handler.  Disable that option.

I did that as well & with the box UN Checked it still defaulted to the GMail as the email to use.  It didn't even give me a choice.

Beaucairej,

I am surprised by the comment you accepted as the answer.  It seemed like it was not the answer you needed or at the very least you also used War1's comment(s) to solve this.  Thanks in advance for clarifying this.
