Have you found an interesting article but don’t have time to read it right away? Well, why don’t you email that web page to yourself to access it later? Yes, you read it absolutely right! You can email web pages to yourself if you run out of time to read them immediately.
Most commonly, this is achieved by simply copying and pasting a web link into an email message, which may suffice for most purposes. But sometimes, the exact content of a web page may change, so you may want to preserve it as it is, right? Well, there are many options to save web pages on your device.
In this how-to article, we’ll ring up the curtains of the process to email web pages to yourself. Read on.
Email Web Pages to Yourself
There are numerous ways to clip a full web page. For instance, you can use the Pocket app to send a nicely formatted mobile version of a web page to your phone or tablet for offline access.
However, Pocket means using another app to install, sign into, keep synced, etc. Wouldn’t it be nice if you could do the same thing with just your inbox?
If you have been seeking a more simple way to email web pages to yourself, one that works with desktop browsers as well as mobile browsers, consider using EmailThis. With one click, this browser bookmarklet for Chrome will deliver the current web page to your inbox. And, like Pocket, it strips out all the ads and mobile-unfriendly formatting, providing you with just easy-to-read text and images. It also offers the source link at the bottom in case you want to return to the site.
Once you’ve downloaded the extension, using EmailThis is exactly a one-click operation. All you need to do is click on the bookmarklet or extension icon whenever you want to email yourself the web page you’re currently viewing.
To our surprise, the bookmarklet is also compatible with Android and iOS browsers, but using it requires a bit more effort. Android users need to type ‘email this’ into the address bar, while iOS users have to open their saved bookmarks and tap on the Email This option.

For sure, many mobile browsers come with a ‘read later’ option, which works just fine. But if you particularly want the page delivered to your inbox, using EmailThis is the best way.
Unluckily, EmailThis is not compatible with Microsoft Edge, which doesn’t support bookmarklets.
