Issue: When a client send a SharePoint Site Page via IE it was opening abruptly in Email.

Background: One of my clients was trying to send the SharePoint as a page using the IE options, File – Send – Page by Email the page was opening abruptly. Nothing was in place. As unexpectedly it should be send by as a normal webpage.

Troubleshooting:

Checked the IE settings.

Cleared the cache of IE,

Restored the IE factory settings but no luck in any case.

It seems to be more of the page layout issue.

Trying out IE options doesn’t help me. I gave a try to the play with outlook settings.

Checked various settings with outlook.

Changing the mail format settings to rich text did helped to resolve the issue.

Resolution:

Change the mail format to Rich Text and then send the Page as Email from IE.

1.    .Open the outlook

2.    On the Tools menu, click Options, and then click the Mail Format tab.
