With Office 2007, IE & OUTLOOK HANG using "send page by email"


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 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?




When I use IE 6 and want to send page by email. It launches thunderbird. I
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.




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?

I have changed the email option (programs) in IE8 to send email to outlook
but it does not work. Any suggestions.




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.

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?




I'd like to take Roady's advice because I'm having the same problem as
bondman was. The link Roady gave does not work anymore. Any new links or a
possibly a better solution at this point?

Had no problems using Outlook 2003 w/ IE7. Also, I can send and receive
emails directly from Outlook 2007 with no problem. When I press the "send
page by email" or "send link by email" in IE7, nothing happens. No error
message, no pop up window like it should, nothing. Under
Tools>Options>Programs, the email program is set to Microsoft Office Outlook
so I can't figure out the problem. Any suggestions?




On our intranet we can open Office 2003 Calendars with this path using IE:
outlook://Public%20Folders/All%20Public% etc. This will NOT work with Office
2007. IE just goes to a page that says 'the webpage cannot be found'. Anyone
run into this and found a solution? Thanks!




Windows 7 64 bit using default 32 bit IE. In IE select file->send->page by
link (or email) does nothing. If Outlook 2007 is already open in the desktop
or taskbar it works. If Outlook was not started I notice an instance of
outlook opens in task manager but not in the taskbar or the desktop.

It appears Outlook is having trouble opening Word as the editor unless
Outlook is not already opened on the desktop. All the proper extension and
default programs are set properly. A diagnostic run on Word 2007 or Outlook
2007 finds nothing wrong.

Please help

A user running IE8 selects the "Send Page By E-Mail" option in IE8. When
Outlook 2007 opens, the page contents look like they have been translated
into Kanji characters. This in on an XP desktop computer




Hi
I am trying to send out a newsletter by creating a webpage and then right
clicking the page in IE 7 XP and selecting send page by email, but I get an
error message saying "the current document type cannot be sent by email"
I have the microsoft outlook selected in the programs tab in internet
options and have outlook set to html but there is something I am missing
here
Any help would be most appreciated
Thanks

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
