The simplest way is to use <a href="mailto:[email protected]">quick reply</a>

This only works if a mail client is configured on the browsing computer.

If you're talking about a text box where people type in a comment and submit then it gets a little trickier.

You have to create a form that submits to a script that creates and sends an email. I can do this in ASP but I don't know what server environment you're working in. The actual textbox for the comment is just <input type="text"> or <textarea></textarea> depending on how much of a message you want them to send. But without a script to build and send the email the reply box won't work.

Sorry - I'm an ASP programmer - haven't done any PHP and not sure how you customise PHP BB, but I reckon a simple search of Google will give you the answer - give it a shot.

And welcome to A2K
