Well, I found a different thread here after posting and it supplied the answer. It appears the share function from the menu is very sensitive to file names. If you keep them simple, the share function works fine.

It should just work.
Is there anything different about the document?
The name should not include any illegal characters such as a / or *.
If that doesn't work download ONYX and run the "Automation" option with the default settings.

I use Pages to create and mail my invoices and today the email option under share is greyed out. I know it is not a filename problem as another respondent cautioned.
I was able to save as a PDF and then mail, so problem is temporarily resolved.
I'm wondering why the option is suddenly greyed out?

I am having the exact same problem. I have created a new document, it is saved in Pages and also as a PDF file. In Pages, when I go to Share "Send by e-mail" is grayed out and I cannot send the document. Why?

I seem to have found the answer to the problem. For whatever reason Apple has the Share menu with the words Send via Mail greyed out AS A TITLE. Under it, Pages, Word and PDF are the options for sharing by Mail. Pick one of them and the Mail App opens. The same for Export which is also greyed out and acts as a title.
Strange user interface for Apple to now use.

thanks for the reply. Yes, I noticed that. But yesterday, even when I clicked on any of the options (word, PDF or pages) nothing happened. So today, I shut my computer totally, waited about 20 seconds, then opened it, entered my password, opened Pages, opened my document, clicked on Share and selected the option (PDF) for the email, guess what IT WORKED!!!
Weird, but at least it works now.
