add "email website" link to webpage

Greetings EE community.  I have a webpage that I would like to add a link to that would allow the reader to email the URL of my page to their friend.  I see this option just about everywhere else but am nowhere near able to program this myself (even if it is simple).  Please let me know what I need to do preferably in html.  Thanks in advance.

Have a look at these links.  Lots of websites use them and you can easily integrate the code directly into your page or blog.

Thanks for the suggestion and link.  When I enter in an email address, it opens outlook on my pc.  Is there a way to just send it from the website without using a client?
The new generation of project management tools

With’s project management tool, you can see what everyone on your team is working in a single glance. Its intuitive dashboards are customizable, so you can create systems that work for you.

the only way to do that would be to implement sendmail function using PHP.

Yes, in order to do that you need to implement a web mailing function using php...a lot more trickier to develop.

Are you custom coding a site or is it built on a platform?  We might be able to suggest a good mailer program that can integrate with your site...

Thanks everyone for your help and time with this.  I ended up going with as it was quick to code and implement.  In any event, I hope to work with all of you again soon.
