- maintain a list of email addresses in user settings.
- after user hits the Email button, we should show that list and send a link to the post to the chosen email address.
- we could also make an input field in that list for user to enter any email address
Implemented in new Send To functionality

yes, I often used the email button in google reader. Important to send content, not just link.
Please add email button link and if possible content as well! Between professional and friends, ability to decide whom to send info needs to be a case by case situation.

I like this idea very much, especially what Alcides Fonseca said: email the content, not just the link.

I love The Old Reader, but many of my friends haven't switched yet - adding an email button would not only allow me to send them posts, but also alert them to your existence! TWO THINGS IN ONE

Ooooh yes, it would be really more practical instead of opening the link in the new tab, then send it through email!
Please add an email button. I can't believe this isn't a feature already!
need, need, need this. For some reason, thought it was in here, so switched to Old Reader.

Another enthusiastic vote for an email button.

This feature is very needed, specially now that the Google Reader user's are going to different services. I can't rely only on the sharing inside The Old Reader (which is great, by the way).
This is the one feature that will keep me on Google Reader until it is killed in July.
You will win a lot of people over if you add an email button. The UI is very clean and resembles greader more than any other alternatives I've used thus far. Please consider adding..

This is the most important thing missing imho. All my sharing is done by e-mail.
"this is really the one feature that The Old Reader is missing when compared to gReader."
same! this is the one feature missing that makes not jump 100% just yet
I would like the email button with the ability to add a note (just like GReader and like the share button, actually).
Otherwise, maybe the "Share" button should propose a checkboxe "Also share by email"… ?
I would like an email button as well. Email is my primary method of sharing entertaining posts.

Please add an "email" button. I would use this feature multiple times daily.
Yes, please have a similar email share feature as Google Reader. Not everyone uses social networking sites to share.
Having the content of the article in the email is much better than sending people a link.
