I can click on "envelope" in PDF and email document with no issues. If I open a pdf in the WEB, the pdf shows up in a internet explorer tab and still has adobe toolbar with envelope, but when I click on envelope to mail document, I get this pop up. (See picture attached) I then pick SEND COPY buy either nothing happens or get a message "This tab as ben recovered"?? Why? adobe pop up Using Adobe 9 Std and IE8. IE window with pdf

Do you have Adobe Reader X 10.0.1?

Sorry just now i saw this "Using Adobe 9 Std and IE8."

I would install Adobe Reader X 10.0.1 and see if this has the same problem.

No. Figured since a paid a small fortune for Adobe Acrobat 9 Standard (ver 9.4.2) that i would not need "Reader". This did work before, but hasn't for a few days now.
To Patch or not to Patch? That is the question!

"Adobe Acrobat 9 Standard" is to edit (make changes) or comment.
Adobe Reader Free is just to view, so you can safely install the latest version of Adobe Reader (X 10.0.1) and see if the problem disappear.

Did you do any changes in the last days?

Do you have a valid mail client configured in IE?

I do have Outlook selected in my IE options (under TOOLS>INTERNET OPTIONS>PROGRAMS), if that is what you are refering to.

I did download Reader (10) and seems to work. Sucks that I paid for 9 and no fix?
