    Forward button in HTML emails

    I guess the reason I can not find the answer to this on theweb is that it is so simple. But I can not find out how to create a "FORWARD" link inside of an html email. I know that the person can just click on forward in there email app but the client wants it. Can someone please enlighten me please?

    Thanks,

    I'm not sure if its possible to use a hypertext link to activate the forwarding function of an email client, but you could link to a form that will let the user enter the email address they'd like to send it to. Have the form send the recipient a link to an archived version of the email online. This is what most of the email service providers like MailChimp and Campaign Monitor do.

    HTML is a markup language, not a programming language, so you can't do this with HTML.

    Why would you want to, anyway? Doesn't every email client have a built-in forward function?
