A while ago I helped a friend with this and now he got a new machine and I need to re-create this.

on the old machine with win xp, he could go to a web page, click on 'page' at the top menu of that version of IE (not sure what version, and the menu is on the top right side of the IE window.  there'd be a 'send link' item.  Clcik on that and it would open an outlook express new email window with that link in the body.

(they use AOL for mail and they use the aol web browsing interface for mail), but I set up AOL in outlook express on that old machine).

now on a new win 8.1 machine with office 2010 installed...  I don't see 'page' in the IE menu anymore with the default IE version that came on 8.1.

any advice?

This was never possible via context menu. With 8.1 (and before), in the menu "file", there is that option. The menu "file" can be accessed by pressing the Alt key.

Ah, to get it via context menu, consider using this freeware addin: http://www.muvenum.com/downloads/freeware/sendlinkbyemail-ie-setup.exe
It is working for me in IE11 @win8.1

thanks.  file, send , link by emil is what I am looking for.  THANKS!

Is there a way to get that as a button or something that takes less steps to get to (rather than 1. file, 2. send, 3, link by email.

Is that what I'll get with that add in?

Yes, that's what that add-in does.
