    I was just getting ready to send a hub in an email from the email option that used to be in the Share section. I couldn't find it.. has it been gone long?  Or am I missing something?

      Missing. Hubpages team has the answer.

    It has been gone since last week.  I used it quite often.

      I haven't tried to send one for a while, but I do use it and wonder why it is gone. an email option is a regular feature on most web sites.

    I guess people were abusing the feature and it has been removed. I inquired from HP staff and this is the response:

    We removed that feature after it was abused repeatedly. We are looking into ways to reinstate that feature, but for the time being hubbers will have to share hubs via email by copying the static link and embedding it in an email message.

    [so whoever was abusing it, there you go.]

    so just insert a link into an email and keep spreading the hub love.

    Yes, we had a severe abuse issue and turned it off until we can figure out how to prevent it from happening in the future.

      thanks Paul for your response. it's really a shame this kind of abuse takes place.
