    Easiest way Rob would just be to create a Zip file of the Favorites folder and mail that.

    Another option is to export you favourites from IE to a file and then email that file.
    Selct the "File" menu, then "Import and Export"
    Click "Next" and follow the instructions. You will create a file called "bookmark.htm". You can then email that file.

    In Windows Explorer, right-click on your Favorites folder (normally, C:windowsfavorites); one of the options from this contextual drop-down menu is «Send to», which will offer the possibility of
    1) Mailing the whole folder — which contains all of your bookmarks, neatly arranged in sub-folders — to a mail recipient. This opens an E-Mail with an attachment that your correspondent only needs to save "as is".
    2) Save to floppy, for safe-keeping or handing over.
    3) Zipping everything, in case you gathered Megs of bookmarks. Once compressed, the file can be mailed using again a right-click on the file itself and the «Send to» option.

    There are also programs out there to manage and convert bookmarks from one browser to another. My favourite is Compass http://www.softgauge.com/compass/
    Sorts, converts (Netscape/IE/Opera), checks dead bookmarks etc.
