ExpressionEngine includes an Email Module in order to provide the ability to create contact forms and tell-a-friend forms.


The Email Module is available only with a purchased ExpressionEngine license.

  • The Contact Form tag allows your visitors to send you email directly from your site.
  • The Tell-a-Friend tag allows your visitors to share your content via email with someone else.


The Email Module is not installed by default, so before using these tags make sure it is installed via the Add-On Manager at Developer Tools ‣ Add-On Manager.
