Here's a Javascript solution:

JavaScript Source

There are also a number of scripts available that rely on PHP, CGI or ASP - but you'd need to ensure your webhost supports these - if so, I can provide links...

there is an example of a php scrpt for this in the tutorials forum. another option would be to do it with javascript

1. Copy the coding into the HEAD of your HTML document
2. Add the last code into the BODY of your HTML document

  <script LANGUAGE="JavaScript">
  <!-- Begin
  function initMail(form) {
  text = "Check out this page:  " + window.location;
  form.message.value = "Hi " + form.sendto.value + " (" + form.to.value + "):\n\n"
   + text + "\n\nYour Friend,\n" + form.sendername.value + "(" + form.senderemail.value + ")";
  return (form.to.value != "");
  //  End -->
 <form name=emailform method=post action="http://cgi.freedback.com/mail.pl" target="_new" onSubmit="return initMail(this);">
  <input type=hidden name=subject value="** Check Out This Site! **">
  <input type=hidden name=message value="">
  <tr><td colspan=2 align=center>Tell a friend about this page!</td></tr>
  <tr><td>Their Name:</td><td><input type=text name=sendto></td></tr>
  <tr><td>Their Email:</td><td><input type=text name=to></td></tr>
  <tr><td>Your Name:</td><td><input type=text name=sendername></td></tr>
  <tr><td>Your Email:</td><td><input type=text name=senderemail></td></tr>
  <tr><td colspan=2 align=center><input type=submit value="Ok!"></td></tr>
