Does it do this before sending or only on receipt?

Hello RCronin,

Change Outlook format to Rich Text format.  Then attachment will appear in the body of email.

Hope this helps!

Upon further investigation, it appears that this is only happening with certain websites. I was able to successfully "Send Page as Email" from several sites, including MSNBC.com and LATIMES.com and the body of the email contained the content of the page.
Is it possible the code used to build the webpage is something other than HTML, or that the webpage itself somehow prevents the "Send Page as Email" function?

Can you right click the page in question and choose View Source?

If you send the page as an attachment and then try to open it on another computer that is off the network (not on the internet) does all of it show up?

yes, some web pages prevent Send Page in email, so you have to attach it.
