Don't Send a Link, Send the Whole Web Page

You can use Safari to email a link to a web page or the whole web page.

When we come across a new or interesting web page, most of us can't resist the urge to share it. The usual way to share a web site with a colleague or friend is to send them the URL, but Safari has a better way. You can use Safari to email the whole page.

  1. From the File menu, select Mail Contents of This Page, or press command+I (the command key plus the letter "i"). Safari will send the page to Mail, which will open a new message that contains the web page. You can add a note, if you like, by clicking in the top of the message.

  2. Enter the email address of the recipient and click Send.

Send a Link Instead

If you prefer to send a link instead of the whole page, select Mail Link to This Page from the File menu, or press command+shift+I (the command key plus the shift key plus the letter "I"). Add a note to your message, enter the email address of the recipient, and click Send.
