I would agree with Robert - ideally you make a special page and add
an "email user" button in your skin.
If you want to go the "hackish" route use a mailto link and define
the subject/body. Of the top of my head, something like this might
<A HREF="mailto:?subject=Foobar.com web page recommendation.&body=Hi,
You might be interested in this web page; <?php $this->text
('pageurl') ?>">Tell a friend</A>
Let me know if you implement a SpecialPage - as I would be interested
in also doing that on http://BluWiki.org
