There's probably a really easy answer to this one but I just can't find it... so please be a hero and help me out!

I need to email a link to a folder on a shared volume to a colleague, showing him where I've put a particular file. How do I do this easily?

(1) Why can't I just select the folder, press Cmd-I, copy the Where or Server info, Cmd-V into an email and press Send?

(2) I also know about the trick to drop the folder on the Terminal window and copy the result, but it looks nasty if you have spaces in the path.

Ideally I would just love to drop the folder on the email and be done with it (but that of course copies the whole folder). There must be an easy way to do this...

    Could you not just describe it? Or take a screenshot of the finder window and email that?

    Just some thoughts
