I would I like to offer the reader of an ebook the possibility to send the ebook to a Friend. Therefore a button shall launch the email client and add the ebook as an attachment. Has anyone an Idea how to do that. mailto does not support attachments.
The problem are the german anti-spam-laws. If someone would send someone the ebook through a website to someone, who did not give the per****
ion the owner of the website is responsible to name the sender. Therefore a registration is required.
It would much easier, if the user uses his email client like ist is, when he uses the "send website to" from the IE menu.
A lot of people would rather not receive large files (especially executables) unasked for. And, a lot of people subscribe to the free email services such as HotMail, and an email in their inbox with a 1 Mb attachment will pretty much fill it up, with no room for other mail until it's deleted.
Rather than encouraging users to send large files by email, you might use your mailto: to send a few words of endorsement and a link to the promotion/download page. You can provide more sales information there, with the download link.
You get a chance to presell the ebook, and users are downloading it because they want to, when they're ready for it.
