This allows you to send the feed to someone via email the links in the email can be opened in MyPOD. (MyPOD must be installed to the receivers device for this to work - the are links in the email to do this)

Known issues
1. Sometimes if you cancel a feed while it's loading and then you load another, the first feed seems to disappear - the first feed is actually overwritten with the seconds title.
Solution : find the second feed, for which there will now be two entries - long press the load button to reload it (or select it and update)
or you can just do "update all feeds" on the home screen (long press the updates row).
