Yah, I can select one of the others, but why can't I select send via mail?
It has never been an issue until yesterday. I've always emailed my pages.
I just wonder if I unknowingly touched something that caused me to no longer
be able to access mail from the share button. Something has changed, but how
it happened I don't know. But I am grateful for your reply!!!

Yah, but when I hit any of the top row buttons...nothing bottom row, ecept for export
all work fine...maybe the problem is with mail. I assumed it was Pages, because when
I tried mail, alone, without pages...it sent a regular email, just fine. Biut maybe its having
a problem popping up when I am trying to send a doc from pages...not sure, but like I said,
I use to send docs using share,...thanx again.

Apple made a change to these entries in the Share menu.
Previously Send via eMail > (or similar) and Export > were top level menu items, which led (as indicated by the > symbols) to a sub menu, where you chose what form the attachemnt to the email should be.
With the change, Send via eMail and Export (both without the > ) became section headers used to group the formats you could use to send the document.
Then, if you wanted to send a copy of the document in Word format, you:
selected "Send by eMail >" to open the submenu, then moved the mouse pointer to the right and down to select Word from the submenu,
Now, if youwant to send a copy of the document in Word format, you save a step and:
select Word directly from the 'Send by eMail' section of the Share menu.
That does sound great...but where do I find this document.
Before, Mail use to pop right up. Now I hit word...nothing. Then when
I go to mail and try to attach, nothing says its in word format. And I'm
not really sure hope to check if it is actually in word.
What am I missing here....I'm getting closer...don't give up on
me now...I can be thick at times.
Thanx for your help.

Is Mail set as your default email client?
Mail should launch, and open a new message with the file attached. The file extension should be .doc for a Word file.
If you chose Word in the second section of the menu, you Mail wil not open, and you should find the file on your computer labeled with the name of the file (as seen in the title bar of the document window) plus the .doc extension.

To elaborate on Barry's first sentence above, this is how you check:
Open Apple's Mail, click Preferences (under Mail in the menu bar), click the "General" tab on top, and make sure "Default email reader" is set to "Mail (6.5)".
Bingo!!!! Thank you both so very much.
I did need to go into my mail and check my setting
Not sure how or why it got changed...but on occasion
I do let family use my mac..maybe, but it's working now!
Thanx again, you guys are great. and sberman, I meant to
hit...this solved my problem, but hit the other without thinking.
