    I want to email a page that I am on while using Safari from my email in Mail. When I go to the share menu there does not seem to be a share option from within the Mail program. I have lots of other options, including one from Gmail, though not from Mail. How do I set up a Mail share option?

    Thanks.

    You need to use the share option from Safari, not Mail.

    See my screenshot.

    Sorry, I meant using the share menu from Safari. When I go to that menu there is no option to share via "Email this Page" I have Mail set up to download and send my email.

    Thanks.

    AFAIK the Safari share picks up your default mail app, perhaps check that your default mail app IS Mail and not something else??? I can't see how/where you would manually configure the items in the Safari Share tab...:confused:

    Edit: Ah - System Preferences/Extensions/Share...

    There is no Mail option. There is Chrome mail option. How do I change the default mail program?

    Its picking up Chrome there AFAIK because Chrome is your default mail app. That is set by Mail so fire up Mail and set it in Mail preferences...
