You can't. It's a cruel joke.

Email clients are programs that let you send, receive and read emails on your computer. You can have multiple email accounts set up in one program - saving you from constantly visiting multiple websites to read all your email. Some of the more common ones include: Mozilla Thunderbird (free), Windows Live Mail (free), Microsoft Outlook Express (free but mostly only on WinXP or possible Windows Vista systems), and Microsoft Outlook (the costly version that's part of the MS Office suit). There's plenty of others depending on your operating system but these are just some.

The problem with the game is that it doesn't always recognize that you've got an email client on your computer - or it only recognizes it for some quests. Some can't get the game to recognize the email client at all, some can send pictures (to complete the "Share a picture" quest) but can't get it to recognize their email client for the "Invite Friend" quest. Some have multiple email accounts and/or clients on their computer and have been able to make another account/client their default and been able to get the quests to work that way but others have tried the exact same thing and not had it work.

If you use a program other than your web browser to read/send your email you've got a default client on your computer already - the game just isn't recognizing it. Unfortunately, the only thing you can really do in that case is to ignore those quests and hope for an update that fixes things.

If you want to read through some of the results others have tried, there's a full thread that deals with some of the headaches people have had here: http://forums.bigfishgames.com/posts/list/264707.page

No. You need to have an email client to invite friends.
There is no internal email or friends list as in other games.
The post immediately above yours (by LunyKimberly) describes in detail what is needed, and why (as I said before that) the whole quest is a cruel joke, as the game does not see to recognize actual email clients.
(As LunyKimberly explained, an email client is nto a person, it's a software application.)
Try the suggestions she made. Good luck.

Since this doesn't work, we should get the coins credited to us anyway. It's not like we haven't honestly tried to do those tasks.

Having same problem too and after reading all of your input and when it was requested it appears to me that we are not going to get an update to the game to fix the problem.

I guess when everyone stops playing it then maybe it will get their attention.

Doubtful, they have already shelved this game and are probably on to the next FTP game. No updates, and none in the works. I liked this game, so sad
