Send Page via Outlook Email
OneNote 2016 allowed users to send a page via e-mail after it was created. This is absolutely critical for users that leverage OneNote to capture notes from meetings to send those notes out to all attendees (many of whom, especially leaders, do not use OneNote). Currently, when the "Share" button is clicked, and "Send a Copy" selected, only Twitter and Windows Mail show up as options for sending e-mail. For companies that require Outlook, this is unacceptable. We need the ability to do two things natively: track attendance (where did the checkboxes go?) and send pages via e-mail. Very frustrating that this is missing.

What also happens is when you send a page that contains graphics, MAIL deletes all graphics and only sends the text. Since I used to use this function a lot in OneNote 2016, I've needed to go back to the older version so I can email pages + graphics. I too use Outlook as I have a BUSINESS account, I really want to maximise my use of Outlook.

We would also prefer to choose Outlook instead of Windows Mail to send notes.

The integration with Outlook for meetings is critical. OneNote 2016 made this so easy with one button to communicate with all attendees. Without this option we are going to have to find another tool to use for my team that works all across the country. We use this feature to create template and share the notes with our clients. I am so disappointed to see this functionality missing in the newer version. It is clear that Microsoft does not understand collaborative note taking if this function is missing!
our company was using onenote extensively to take and distribute meeting notes with 2016, now onenote is almost useless for that purpose. why in the world would microsoft ruin a good product and call it the "best"

The "Email Page" function utilizing Outlook is one of the handy little things that make OneNote 2016 such a powerful tool. Please add it to the OneNote App.

Definitely support the Outlook point. Even with the Win 10 Mail app, you lose basic features in the email. Checkboxes and the other tags don't come through in an email.

Nobody is running Windows 10 mail over Outlook in a business setting. To not be able to share notes via Outlook is a huge barrier to adoption of OneNote in a business environment.
disappointing to see MS not interested in this feature

this is still in OneNote 2016 but missing from Store OneNote because Outlook hasn't made itself a share target in Windows 10
