    Not as you might expect, but there's a PDF-based alternate method,
    though it takes a moment to set up:

    1. In your home folder, look in "Library". In that folder, create a
    sub-folder called "PDF Services".
    2. In the PDF Services folder, put an alias of your mail application.
    Rename the alias to something like "print to mail".
    3. In Safari, select File-->Print. At the bottom of the print dialog,
    the "Save as PDF" button is now a menu. Choose "print to mail" from the
    menu. You'll get a new mail message with a PDF of the page attached.

    Make a bookmark with this URL (all on one line):

    javascript:location.href='mailto:?SUBJECT='+escape (doent.title)+'&BOD
    Y='+escape(location.href)

    Place it on your toolbar. Clicking this will open a new message with
    the current page's title as the subject and its URL as the body.

    Sending the whole Web page would be dumb; the person who receives it
    presumably has access to the Internet, so it's more efficient to just
    send them the URL. Also, people would be less likely to delete your
    e-mail without reading it since it's not HTML.

    Thanks, Tom.

    I set up the alias of mail.app in Home/Library/PDF Services/Print to
    mail but in the print dialog "Save as PDF" continues to display as a
    button and not a menu. Suggestions would be appreciated.

    Slick move. After my original post, I discovered that I could highlight
    an address then goto safari/services/mail/send selection to autoopen an
    email doc, but your solution is much more efficient.

    Agreed, but do not let this fact artifically restrict your use of the
    PDF alternative.

    The beauty of the PDF based solution is the fact that it can be used
    for any application with the print command, which means that you are
    therefore able to attach any doent (PDF) to an e-mail with minimal
    effort.

    Clearly I will need to learn more about PDFs. As I mentioned above,
    after setting up an alias of mail.app in Home/Library/PDF Services/Print
    to mail, the file/print dialog "Save as PDF" continues to display as a
    button and not a menu. I'm overlooking something simple, but damned if I
    can find it.

    Is it the same button it used to display? The menu is a non-standard
    kind of thing that looks like a button with an icon on it.

    The path for the alias you have stated may be incorrect:

    Home/Library/PDF Services/Print to mail

    Try this: Home/Library/PDF Services/mail.app

    Mail.app should an alias (named whatever you desire) and should reside
    in the PDF Services folder.

    An alternate method you could use would be to place the following
    Applescript in your PDF Services folder:

    on open these_items
    tell application "Mail"
    set composeMessage to (make new outgoing message with properties
    {visible:true})
    tell composeMessage
    tell content
    repeat with aFile in these_items
    make new attachment ¬
    with properties {file name:aFile} at before the first
    character
    end repeat
    end tell
    end tell
    end tell
    end open

    I have named my script (Attach PDF to e-mail).

    Additonally, the button displayed at the bottom of the print menu must
    be clicked to expose the underlying menu.

    You can also create an alias for any folder you desire. Place the alias
    in PDF Services folder where it will be displayed as one of your print
    menu selections. When you select the folder item from your print menu
    a PDF doent will magically be placed in the original folder.

    PDF services exist since Mac OS 10.2.4. Is your OS at least up to that
    version?

    The path should be "Library/PDF Services" for all users on a machine or,
    for an individual user, "Users/~/Library/PDF Services", where "~" is the
    short user name.

    The alias of Mail.app doesn't go into subfolder.

    The folder name "PDF Services" must not contain any extra characters, eg
    a space at the end.

    Log out and log in again.

    The print dialog should now have two buttons, one for preview (left) and
    one button with a little triangle (right). When you press the right
    button you should be presented with a pop-up menu. The top item is Save
    As PDF..., the entry below is what you've called your alias of Mail.app.

    Hmm, must be something in the "Services" settings somewhere I haven't

    I'm using Eudora for mail, the PDF Services trick, and the java bookmark

    Now that IS clever!

    Alas, it doesn't work around the ban imposed by Adobe Reader 6.0 on
    printing a completed form to pdf or previewing it...

    Using Home/Library/PDF Services/Print to mail; where "Print to Mail" is
    an alias to Mail.app. Is this correct for me as a single user?

    After updating OS to 10.2.6 and Safari to 1.0 (v85) I now get a Preview
    Icon to the right of which is the PDF icon rather than "Save as PDF"
    button in the Safari file/print dialog.

    <baaaamp> Upon selection of the PDF icon , I get a dialog named "Print"
    in the title bar - which says "Preparing..." with a dimmed but spinning
    progress pole on the right side of which is a cancel button. This dialog
    is overlaid by a second unnamed dialog that contains the Sarafi icon
    graphic to the right of which is the word Print in bold text, below
    which is the string "Error while printing." and an "OK button in the
    lower right corner.

    There is no printer on this new machine and I have not loaded any
    printer drivers. The printer set-up dialog does not provide me with any options.

    That's as it should be.

    When you click and hold, you should be presented with a pop-up menu
    similar to the one shown here:

    <http://24fps.net/stuff//saveaspdf.jpg>

    The shown menu entries reflect the names of the aliases in my PDF
    Services folder:

    Hm. Could be because ...

    To set up a printer, go to Applications > Utilities > Print Center.

    Also, since you've run some installers, it won't hurt to repair disk
    permissions with the Disk Utility in the same folder.

    My pop up menu and the aliases in my PDF Services folder are identiical
    in appearance to yours except that mine are limited to the single item
    that represents the Mial.app alias that I named "Print to Mail" which
    resides in home/Library/PDF Services.

    Is that to say that the "Error while printing" message that I can't
    seem to resolve might be caused by not having a printer installed., and
    if so, that I cannot use this option until I get a printer for this
    machine and load drivers?

    Nothing in there at this time.

    No need to go out and buy one, just set one up. :-)

    - Open Applications > Utilities > Print Center

    - Choose Printers > Add Printer...

    - Select "IP Printing", specify a bogus IP Printer Address (eg
    192.168.0.50, as long as that isn't used on your network)

    - For Printer Model, select "Generic". If you can't, you'll probably
    have to install some printer drivers.

    Yes! Many thanks. Setting up an IP printer was the solution. So little
    time...and so much to learn!
