    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

    Luiz

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

    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>';
    }
    </script>
    <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.
