"Email This" functionality

edited October 2007 in Vanilla 1.0 Help
I've been seeing this function with more and more blogs and I'm wondering if anyone has configured it for Vanilla. I'm thinking:

1) at the end of every post, people have the option to emailing it. So, say a user comes to the forum and finds a post interesting enough to send to a friend/colleague, or - maybe surfing from work and wanting to email themselves the post so that they can re-read it when they get home.

2) an admin could set it to allow for the entire discussion to be emailed or just the most recent post, as well as if just a link the discussion would be sent.

3) "send this to email" be a check box next to the "add your comments" button so that when you post it to the forums, you can also email it.

I'm not a coder. But, I figure it could be a mixture of Nuggets (for placement), Contact Form (for the form structure and email sending power) or - Report Post, but with the ability to send it to whatever member/email address you want.
