Adobe Acrobat Reader DC has changed functionality around sending PDFs to email. Originally there was a button that sent the PDF directly to your email app. Now it opens an intermediary screen that asks if you want to send links, or private links, or URL. In short it is no longer one click but a series of clicks to to use the send to email functionality.
To get back the one click to send an email function check out the instructions on this page.
If the page is removed: There is a registry file you download it to your desktop and install. The files and instructions are shown below.
