Q: Why should I email the whole web page when I can email a link?
A: There are many reasons. Here are some of them:
  • Saves your recipients time by not making them click a link to read your web page. For busy people, this improves the likelihood that they will read the linked web page.
  • All scripts and dynamic elements of a web page is stripped out. This protects your recipients from popups and other annoying activity that may be malicious.
  • Allows you to email a page to someone who doesn't have access to the the web page (either because the page was dynamically generated or the page is password-protected.)
  • Today's web is more dynamic than ever and web pages are changing all the time. By emailing the entire web page, you ensure that your recipient is seeing the same web page as you—even if the original web page is changed.
  • Many people need to have a archive record of a web page and use EmailTheWeb.com to email the web page to themselves.
The bottom line is that in a busy world, if you want to improve your chances of having an important web page read, you are best using EmailTheWeb.com to email it.

Q: Why can't I just copy and paste the web page into an email?
A: For some web pages, this will work just fine. However for many web pages, copy and paste does not work properly because
  • The style sheet can't be copied and pasted. This means that the web page will not be formatted the same way as it was in the original. EmailTheWeb.com does a great job of keeping the exact formatting of web page.
  • When you copy and paste a web page, the actual images from the web page are copied into the email. This means that the email will be much larger in size which will slow the delivery of the email. There is also a chance that your recipients may not have enough room in their email account for such a large email and your email will be rejected without being delivered.
If you just want to copy a small portion of a web page into an email, copy and paste will work just fine. But if you want to email the whole page, EmailTheWeb.com can't be beat.

Q: Why can't I use Internet Explorer's "send page by email" feature?
A: For some simple web pages, this will work just fine. However, most web pages are not simple and "send page by email" feature will not work properly because Internet Explorer:
  • Includes the code that makes the web page dynamic. This is not supposed to be read by people and it will only confuse your recipients..
  • Does not take into account the limitations of how web-based email accounts view formatted emails. This means that web page will not be formatted the same way as it was in the original.
  • Copies the actual images from the web page into the email. This means that the email will be much larger in size which will slow the delivery of the email. There is also a chance that your recipients may not have enough room in their email account for such a large email and your email will be rejected without being delivered.

Q: Does it cost anything to use EmailTheWeb.com?
A: There is no cost to use EmailTheWeb.com and we plan to keep the basic service free forever. However, we do plan to charge for premium services in the future. We also reserve the right to limit the number of emails that you can send to prevent abuse.

Q: Will EmailTheWeb.com really capture and email any web page perfectly?
A: Yes, EmailTheWeb.com will email any web page as perfectly as it's possible to. Please keep in mind that there are technical limitations with email so a web page may not display perfectly, but EmailTheWeb.com is as good as an emailed web page can get. If you have an issue with an particular web page or web site, please contact us and we will investigate the issue.

Update: we now have a new premium feature called ExactPage (see next question) which will display web pages even more exactly than it was ever before possible.

Q: What is ExactPage and why do I need it?
A: ExactPage is a premium feature. Many email clients have technical limitations and restrictions that don't allow them to display rich web pages properly. This is why we invented ExactPage. Learn more about ExactPage

Q: What is the archive and why do I need it?
A: The archive is a premium feature. Once enabled (when you upgrade your plan), all web pages that you email send are saved in your archive. This is helpful if you are unable to located the copy of the web page that you emailed. If you did not activate the archive, then we can try to recover your web pages, but there are no guarantees! The longer you wait, the less of a chance that we will be able to recover your web pages.
