The Email a Friend portlet places an icon on your webpage for "Email this page to a friend".  When the user clicks that link, they are required to complete a form.  Upon submitting the form, an email is sent to their 'friend' with a link to the webpage invoked.

When you assign the Email a Friend portlet to a page, select the view of the form your users will use.  Some forms display with a comments box while other do not.  You can view each sample as you build the portlet.
