Cannot send web pages by email

I used to be able to send web pages by email, but now I
cannot do it. At least not directly. If I select "send
page by email", I get Outlook 2003 SP2 starting, but then I
get "This message has not been sent".

Clicking "Send" makes no difference. How can I fix this problem?

Thanks,
Allan

This is the first time I've gotten involved with Office 2003. I've
used Office 2000 and XP (2002) for quite some time and have not had
this issue come up before. I am currently using Windows XP Pro Tablet
PC and MS Office 2003 Student and Teacher version (currently the 60 day
trial but am planning on buying the full software soon), all with what
I assume to be the latest updates. I also use IE 7 (final release).

My issue is I've discovered that now I can't send web pages by email
(embedded into the message, that is) as I've always done in the past.
My web and email practices are very specific, limited, careful and
generally without problems. I understand that sending a web page by
embedding it into an email isn't the smartest thing to do for a lot of
folks, but such has been the norm for me and those I communicate with
on a frequent basis. So, it's an important feature I must have.

When I click "Page" (or "File") then "Send Page by mail" the message
SHOWS the page embedded into the message but when the recipient gets
generally a blank message with normal headers, etc. and the page itself
comes in attachments rather than embedded as desired. Sending a page's
link by email works fine. Also HTML-formatted messages with drawings
and pics embedded seem to go through okay.

I have tooled with settings here and there to no avail. I have made
sure that MS Word is my default email editor, default associated
programs for IE include Outlook and Word, firewall settings are
appropriate, and the default format for email is HTML. Believe me, I
have combed through the settings in just about everywhere I look on my
machine but I can't seem to find the answer.

QUESTIONS:

1) Is this a bug?
2) If not a bug, is this an intended feature of MS Office 2003 STUDENT
& TEACHER (as opposed to "Basic", "Professional", etc. versions)?
3) Are there any real solutions to this, not just work-arounds I've
seen posted everywhere (some of which are really bulky, multi-step
processes).

Questions, comments and suggestions are welcome.

Thanks!

When viewing a web page I want to share with someone, I click File and choose
Send "Web Page by email" or "Web Link by Email". In the past with my other
ISP provider and using Outlook, it worked fine. I could fill in the
recipient(s) names and send off. With my new ISP provider, it opens into
Outlook and I get a message above the header saying "Message has not been
sent". That itself is strange, since I have not even been given the chance
to fill in any names. When I do enter the recipient names, I do not have the
button available to click and send.

HELP!

Vicky,

The steps I provided above regarding moving your mail account setting to
Outlook should then give you the option to send the message. It appears that
the message could not be sent because you hadnt setup your email account in
Outlook at th is point.

With outlook 2007, I can no longer send web pages via email, like I used to
in 2003? My mail is set up in HTML, When clicking on page and then send page
as email All info is gone? just the back ground color.

I am suddenly unable to send a web page by email. When I try doing so, I get
the following error message:

The current document can not be sent as mail. Would you like to send a
shortcut instead?

when I use the funciton in IE: File---> Send---> Page by email..
the system alert that : the current document type can not be send as mail,
would you like to send a shortcut instead?

but the same page can be send on another PC

what is the problem?

Try asking in a newsgroup that supports whatever email client you are using.
It's actually not a FrontPage problem.

When I choose File, Send to send a page I receive a message "Send Mail
failed
to send message" I sent this same page many times yesterday. What I can I
do
to fix this issue?


I use IE 8, WinXP, Outlook 2007 & Office XP. In IE, I can't send a page by email, and I can't send a link by email. (I know about copying and pasting the URL into a message.) How do I fix this?


Hi!

When I try to send a page by email with graphics (like an advertisement), it is rearranged and items are missing. This just started. It may have been caused by that group of Office Updates received in the last couple of weeks. My security settings are set to default. Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks

I had to delete a profile, now when trying to send a page by email from IE6
nothing happens. Outlook does not open. I did check to make sure outlook is
the email option for programs in internet options.

Hi,

One of our clients is having a problem on their SBS 2003 Premium server.

They cannot send and receive external emails. Internal emails work fine.

Thier server has Exchange 2003 and ISA 2004. There is 2 NICs (Internet and External) and the External NIC is connected to a D-Link DSL-504G ADSL Modem.

Internet works perfectly fine. Modem has the correct ports forwarded

After my investigations, i have found i cannot telnet to an external mail server either.

I have tried to re-set up the ISA rules for SMTP. (have even copied off a working SBS server in a similar setup)

If i do a ShieldsUp test on grc.com port 25 comes up stealth, where other ports like 3389 and 1723 show up as Open (as they should be)

I have re-ran the Internet Configuration Wizard. While i was running that though, i did notice something strange, if i choose "Enable Firewall" on the firewall page, it asks if i want to allow Email/Web/FTP etc, Email was unticked. I ticked that and continued on but when it was processing the settings it came up an error saying it cannot complete.

If i choose disable firewall, it comes up the same error. so all i can do is leave it as do not change firewall configuration.

That is pretty much the only suspicious thing i have found. Everything else seems fine, i have tried google search after google search but cannot seem to find anything relevant.

Has anyone seen anything like this or have any advise on steps i can take, ive tried all i can think of. Except changing over the ADSL Modem (which i dont think is the problem), and Re-installing ISA and/or Exchange (which i don't really want to do)

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Cheers,
Mark

Whenever I try to forward a web page by email it opens in a window which
states that the email has not been sent, I used to be able to just send a
page and my usual outlook page would open but somehow this has changed as if
there is a block on it. My normal emails are fine, can anyone offer any ideas.

I have a client that I make an email newsletter for.

If I upload it to our server, she can open it in Internet Explorer and File
> Send page by email and it works fine.

However, if I send her the files and she opens them from her desktop and
does the same thing, the page is added as an attachment.

It shouldn't make any difference where the files are located, should it?

Her Outlook is set to send HTML by default, and this clearly works as she
can send the online version with no problems.

Any ideas why this doesn't work?

When I choose "Send Page by Email" some pages are put directly into the
message and some are inserted as an attachement. How do I control this?

Using Internet Explorer 7 to read a newspaper article, I click "print" to
get a simple format. Then I click "send page by email"; then I enter my
email address in "to"; then I click "send" and BOTH IE and Outlook2007 hang.
This still happens AFTER I carefully remove all images and links from the
page before clicking "send." I have to force both IE and Outlook to close.
When I reopen Outlook 2007, the email IS IN the outbox where it should be.
These steps worked correctly under Outlook2002. Installing Office 2007
broke my system.

I create an enewsletter usingFrontPage then when I send the page by email the
background image cannot be seen. Is there a setting so that I can be sure the
background image is sent with the rest of the content?

have chosen outlook express in tool options applications settings. I even
switched it to thunderbird then back again to outlook express. nothing
happens. Its as if it is ignoring this setting. Although when i click on
an email address in explorer outlook express opens fine. can't figure it
out. please help.

thanks.

this is on a machine running ie6 and outlook express 6 and sp2 with all
updates.

Hello,
We recently installed sp3 for out Outlook 2003 configuration. Now when we're
in IE7 and we choose, File/Send/Send Page by email the html page takes up the
entire Outlook message, i.e. there is no room at the top of the message for
the user to type text. We have a workaround so it's not a disaster, but we
would like to know what is causing this. It also seems to be moving
signature files around if the signature contains any kind of image. Any help
would be appreciated.
Thanks.
