    I'm looking for a function or a plugin that would allow me to have an "email this article to a friend" or something button with each post. Ideas?

    If you burn your feed in feedburner (don't worry, it's free), it will give you this option, plus a lot more (analytics, optimization and publication tools):

    http://www.feedburner.com/fb/a/home

    Once you burn your feed, go to Optimize -> Feedflare.

    I highly recommend burning your feed:)

    errr, is there a way to do it within WP? I have a feedburner account but I don't really know how to use it yet and this seems like something that should be able to happen from within WP, either with a plug in or some code.

    Sure there are plugins, but if you already have a feedburner account, then why not just do it through feedburner? It's already at your fingertips, all you have to do is read the directions. imo, a lot less of a hassle than getting a plugin installed and crossing your fingers on it working on the first try. With Feedburner you can also see who all of your email subscribers are.

    Which are the plugins? I can't find them. I have looked through FeedBurner and can't figure out how to use it in this capacity. I'd rather handle it in WP.

    I use the WP-Email plugin(http://www.lesterchan.net/portfolio/programming.php) which will also show you who's sending and what. Hope this helps.

    Yup yup. I found that as soon as I made the last post. It's great. Thanks!
