"Invite a friend"

I need to put a form in my website www.liquidagora.com where people can enter a friend's email and automatically the site sends an email to that person.

I don't even know how is that called, So I couldn't search here on the forum.

I'd appreciate any resource with a code to do that.

Thank you very much

What server side language you are using. Its not possible to do that using Plain HTML

A simple solution to the problem would be to put a mailto: link in your page, using a bit of javascript!

Code: HTML
<script language='JavaScript'>
function doEmail()
    var email = document.getElementById('email').value;
    var uri = 'mailto:'+email+'?Subject=Check this out&Body=Check out http://go4expert.com';
    document.getElementById('ifr').innerHTML = '<iframe src="'+uri+'"></iframe>';
<input type="text" name="email" id="email"> <input type="button" value="Send To Friend" onClick="doEmail();">
<span id='ifr' style='display:none'></span>

For a mailto link you can do without js as well.
