    Hei folks

    I know that in 'Profile Questions' i can install Q's for website, social media and other things.
    I have looked in my Questions but cant find one for Email.

    Also i know members can send 'Messages to other members.

    My Feature Request is (If Possible):
    Because i have 'Business Members' as well as Regular members,
    I could create a 'single line input' question for email but there is no link or function behind it that will initiate the sending of emails.

    Q: Can we have a 'Email Question' that initiates the email sending.

    Many Thanks

    That would not be advised as that is how spammers grab emails to spam. It is also how phishers grab emails to spoof. So for SE end of things, we won't add that as it would be too harmful in our opinion. It would need a lot of thought for how to safely do it. If there is a safe method thought of, we can then consider it. Such as, it hides behind a privacy wall and only site members can see it. Still though, if the site member is a spammer, there goes the email. Needs more thought. Please see if you can think of a secure way to do it and if anyone else does, they can post too.
