Email a Link option in SharePoint just shows the word sample in mail client
You try to use the 'Email a Link' feature in SharePoint 2010 and the body contains just the word 'sample'
To resolve this issue, open IIS:
Select 'Default Website'
Double-click 'Authentication' under 'IIS'
Click 'Windows Authentication'
Click 'Advanced Settings' under 'Actions'
Set 'Extended Permissions' to 'OFF'
you don't need to restart IIS and the link now appears in the body of your email when you hit the 'Email a Link' button
