    Create an IBAction called email in the .h of the View you would like to email from. Then in the .m put in the following code:

    - (IBAction)email {
    	[[UIApplication sharedApplication] openURL:[NSURL URLWithString:@"mailto://"]];
    Then you can go in IB and create a Round Rect Button and connect the action to the button using Touch Up Inside.

    How hard was it for me to type in that code instead of sending the person to links that don't helP? Not very hard at all.
