    I have tried to "Send Page By Email" from Page dropdown on my toolbar and
    Yahoo mail is my default email. Takes me to Yahoo mail attachment page and
    wants me to select a file to attach, which makes no sense. With XP, it drops
    the web page right into the body of my Yahoo email. Any ideas on how to do
    this with VISTA?

  2. IIRC, you have to have Yahoo Messenger installed, before you can make Yahoo
    webmail the default mail handler. I was trying to get this done on my dad's
    Thinkpad, and I found that there used to be a tool to do this, but Yahoo
    have stopped giving that away, to encourage people to install their chat
    client.

    It seems to be more of an integration issue rather than a real problem.
    Have you tried saving the actual page and attaching it? If the client interface
    supports it, it should just display the actual page straight away, like sending
    an html formatted email. The only issue would be the actual media (pictures,
    banners and so on) the document contains, which also would need to be added
    as attachments.

    Why not just sending the link to the page ?
