I am using the ShareThis plugin in my blog. When I click on the email tab and send a mail to my friend, only the post title and post link is included in the mail. Contents are not showing up in the mail.

What can I do to change this?

One year ago a support employee wrote that "as of right now, the only fields that will show up in an email share is the link title and URL." I don't know whether this is still the case.

But I doubt that ShareThis would ever send the whole contents of the post via mail. I would imagine a webmaster would prefer the receiver of the mail to visit the site instead of just reading everything in the mail.

ShareThis does document some Open Graph tags, including og:description. Can you try that and tell us whether they end up in the mail?

Can i know if there is any other plugin where content of post also shows up in the mail while sharing to a friend? – user3243 Feb 18 '11 at 4:38
@scn4u: There are probably plugins that do this, I suggest you ask a new question for that. You can accept this answer to indicate it "solved" your initial problem. – Jan Fabry Feb 18 '11 at 7:57
