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?

fine)
Cant change it back to outlook 07
Have tried the IE8 tools/options/programs tabs - FAIL
Have tried outlook default mail tabs - FAIL

When I try to send page by email in outlook it defaults to windows live.
(send link by email works fine)
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

into Kanji characters. This in on an XP desktop computer

Hi

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


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

Ron

 

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?

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!

Hello -

I just upgraded to Office 2007 to evaluate it and have run into an issue.
When using Internet Explorer v7, I go to the File Menu -> Send -> Link by
E-Mail to forward a link of a page to someone. When I do this, Outlook
crashes. If I select Send -> Page by Email nothing happens.

Since we use a lot of web based systems, I need to be able to use this
functionality. Any idea what might be causing Outlook to crash?

I did check under Internet Options -> Programs and Outlook is set for
default E-Mail.

Any suggestions would be much appreciated.

Thanks -
Lawrence
