Are you certain this is a Shotwell-only issue? Shotwell uses the Nautilus send-to extension for e-mailing files. Could you test this directly in Nautilus? Right click a file and select "send to" and see if you can e-mail from there.

If you can't e-mail from there, we can change the package on this question from shotwell to nautilus. (wim-dek) said : #2

hello Eric,

I just tested this directly in Nautilus and indeed I couldn't e-mail a picture from Nautilus either.

So what to do now?

This is a known problem on Ubuntu Natty (not with Shotwell specifically):

According to that bug, they've recently released a fix. Are you sure you've applied all software updates? (wim-dek) said : #4

hallo adam,

thank you for the answer.
I'am looking further in Nautilus answers.
