    There's no one click solution. The real answer is much more involved. You'll also need your own php-ready webspace or somebody who's willing to lend you one, including access to the mail function.

    You can send an e-mail address to a php web-page using the 'GET' extension. The .php script will then send an e-mail using the 'mail' function.

    My recommendation would be to google 'PHP mail tutorials' (the 'mail' function does the bulk of the work), then learn how to pass a variable to a .php webpage via the 'GET' extension. There's a good tutorial on the ClickTeam tutorials page about passing to an 'online scoreboard', but rather than passing names and scores you'll just be passing an e-mail address.

    Remember to add some validation to the e-mail address entered by the user. There's a few little exploits hackers can use to take advantage of your mail function and use it for their own purposes, but most good .php tutorials should mention the validation you'll require to stop this.

    Ryan mentioned the highscores tutorial, but you should check if my online registration and login tutorial can help. It uses a validation email with the mail() function
