I need some help with Apple Safari 8.0 and the "Mail Contents of this Page
February 6, 2015 6:01 PM   Subscribe

I recently upgraded a few steps in my Mac life and have an problem I need to solve. I send out a simple newsletter to some subcribers that I create in dreamweaver- save as an html- then open in safari and, until recently, used the "Mail Contents of this Page" option that my older version of safari had, that would open apple mail and then send.. It seems that safari no longer has that option OR am I missing something.

I am not really savy in email speak. Is there a way to continue this and keep it simple?
Thank you hive!

Looks like this page may help you set that feature back up. I've not tried this myself (still running an older version of the OS).

Yes, Safari should still have it, under the share button (square with an arrow coming out of it) as "Email This Page". If it's missing, BillMcMurdo's link looks like the thing to do to get it back.

It's also possible that Safari has the button but it's not one of the stock buttons that Safari now shows front and center. If this is the case, just open Safari and choose Customize Toolbar from under the View menu and drag the Share button (the box with the up-pointing arrow) up to the toolbar.

You should also see the Share option under the File menu where there is a Share option. This is with Safari 8.0

Thank you. I see the share option and the email this page option , however before there was a "Mail Contents of this Page" option. Tnat is what I am seeking.

When you use the "email this page" option and it opens up Mail, you have the option to send the page as a PDF, a web page or "link only" (in the lower right of the header area). Do none of these do what you want?
