set up a form button (classic), like the Print PDF button but to email based on field from the form

Hello all, I'm not completely a newbie, but I would like to have a button either on the ribbon on a classic form, or elsewhere on the form to email the form in PDF to an email address that is a field on the form.  The PDF button would almost be the same as the canned Print PDF, but I would like to make mine have the ability to default to the email address from a field on the form or change the email address.  I would like the user to click on the button, outlook would pop up with the email address prefilled from a field on the form, then they click on send.

don't think you'll get a full integrated solution for this one.

To Open Outlook with Email Address:
- Create a label with a Hyperlink using the mailto: method. build the mailto: with the to: address being a form reference to the email control you've noted.

To get PDF into email:
I don't know a way to do this, you'll need to instruct the user to click PrintPDF and save locally then drag into the email and send
