This is the problem. When on Amazon I may see a product and want to send it to a friend for their opinion. I press the upload icon. I get several options to send this page, such as Email, Link or Facebook. I want to send it by Email, but it defaults to Outlook and I want to use Ameritech or yahoo. Does anyone have any suggestions? Thanks, Dan

I’m not sure I know what you’re referring to as the “upload icon.” 

But, here’s how I would share an item with a friend:

On a computer: go to the item for sale on Amazon, copy the URL – the address starting with Amazon.com in the top left of your screen. Then you can go to wherever you want to paste it – your email, a facebook post, etc.

On a phone: go to the item for sale on Amazon, tap the share button 56shareX2-1.jpgImage Enlarger Scroll down till you can select “Copy” then go to your email or a text, whatever you want to use to send it, and paste. (touch and hold until ‘paste’ appears)

Hope that helps
