I am using Lightroom 5.2 (tested with MAC OSX 10.8.5; 10.9 and WIN 7/64)
All images are stored on an external drive an all smart previews are built.
If the external drive is unmounted and I try to email photos I get the error:
Can't send email because some selected photos are missing.
Exporting the photos to my local hard drive is working so the photos are not really missing.

This should be fixed in Lightroom CC/Lightroom 6.
