LIGHTROOM 5.2: Smart previews work for exports but not emails...

I have a clone of my desktop's library on my laptop using smart previews, and I'm able to export stuff for web & email use using that, which is great, but when I attempt to "email a photo" I get an error message saying it can't email because the original is not available. This is silly -- why does it not use the smart preview, or at least give an option to? LR 5.2 Mac OS 10.8.5

Hi Doug,

Lightroom does not yet use smart previews in all workflows. I agree that it makes sense for the Email workflow, and have sent this on to the team.
