Sharing via email
From a Google Reader ex-user: I frequently share feed articles via email. I don't see that option anywhere on the Chrome plug-in of Feedly (although it works great on the iOS version that I also use). Should be trivial to add to Chrome? Thx.
Sharing via email was implemented in feedly.
You can now also define which email client you would like to use (Gmail or native client) via the preference page (http://feedly.com/i/preferences)
I have set up the native Android email client with my email accounts. Looks like the Feedly app won't allow me to use that client. Just Gmail. What now?
How to login to feedly Android app with my account?? My account is under gmail.com but not the same as my phone google account. How to login?
it is good?

**CORRECTION: I only see this button with the chrome extension installed. It won't show up if just accessing feedly through feedly.com without the extension**
It's actually missing for me (when I activate the "email sharing" button in preferences, it doesn't show up when viewing an article, but every other sharing button does fine).
I could use the custom sharing option with a "mailto:" hack, but that'd require me to pay for feedly pro
It IS making me a little crazy that I can't email from Feedly, especially since it looks like you can, but then the email never arrives. I'm using it mostly on my iPhone but also my Kindle Fire.

In both the web app and the iOS app, one should have the option of mailing either the full article or the link only. As it is, I save stuff on the web and then open it on my iPad to mail a full article, and that's tedious.
In Chrome, I have an email button, but I don't have an email client, so the mailto: link is useless. I would really like a built-in email option that doesn't depend on a mail client.
Can't we change the code so that it automatically opens a new window when sending email?
Yes, I like to send articles via email - sometimes I want to send it to work if its relevant or just send something to a friend - the suggested google+ work around is no good and I don't want to share via social media - I don't enjoy using feedly since I can't easily forward articles that I want to use or remember.
actually, my comment is the opposite of the one below me. i *hate* that i am forced to send the full article via email when all i want to do is send a link to the article from the mobile app. how can i do that? there needs to be an option for this, whether it is in the browser or mobile version.
all in all, i think feedly needs to focus on user options for customizability. browser or mobile, there just aren't enough. or, at least allow some "hackability" for other developers to fill in the gap and share stuff.

please email full article from webapp. the iOS app already does this (and i always appreciated that!). heck i've even taken to saving an item in the webapp just so i could email the article via the iOS app later.

digg reader , aol reader can email a link only.
http://www.feedspot.com/ archived email full content with images. However, it does not have mobile clients (i guess).
I understand the difficulties implementing email directly from Feedly, because you are not like Google who has Gmail.
Feedly is already the best reader I have tried. Keep on.
( My strange, jerky English..)
Yes, please add the ability to email the entire article - not just a link! This is the #1 feature I miss from Google Reader (and may be what drives me to try out some of the other options)...
Seems like you can only email the whole article. I'd like to be able to send a link to the original article (not the feedly address), which I used to do frequently in Feeddler.
I share via gmail (firefox) and via the mini toolbar (great !) but I don't understand why this toolbar doesn't always appear (today, for example, nothing !). I'm a bit lost.

I would like to be able to specify which e-mail client Feedly should use, so not just Gmail, but for example the stock Mail client on Android, Outlook mail on Windows, ... or any other app the user has set as his default mail client.
i need to be able to email. if not added i will switch

There are options now. We could all use Digg Reader and perhaps AOL Reader if Feedly continues to leave this functionality out.
also please add feature to choose with email provider you use. Gmail, yahoo, etc... Gmail preferably first... right now it launches my desktop email client i want it to launch new gmail window in browser. thanks

Send whole article instead of just a link. Google Reader did this.
