Click on the envelope icon in the header navigation to open the send email dialogue. All Confluence users see the icon, but only users with the send permissions can send a page via email. Users without permissions will get an error message.
Due to Atlassian API limitations, it is impossible to handle permissions differently. The best user experience would be to hide the icon, but adding this option can negatively impact the loading page performance.
The email dialogue has several options:
Add Confluence users, groups, or external users as email recipients. Inactive users are excluded from the email list when adding Confluence groups.
Include page breadcrumbs. By default, this feature is enabled.
Include page attachments. By default, this feature is enabled.
Add email subject. By default, the current page title is set as the email subject.
Add watchers, mentioned users, and comments authors as email recipients.
Add a note for email recipients. Use different backgrounds to attract user attention.
