Pre-populate forward to a friend form

Is there any way to get the recip's name and e-mail automatically filled out in the forward to a friend form?

Hey Alex,

This is not possible due to security and privacy concerns.

Let us know if there is anything else you are wondering!

What are the privacy concerns?

When the recip clicks the link to forward, they obviously already know their own e-mail address.

Are you worried that spammers will try to harvest via your forward-to-a-friend links?

Hey Alex,

That is exactly the reason actually. Even though the URLs are encoded hashes, it would be possible for someone to write a random character generator that just reloads, and reloads, and reloads until an email is found and then boom, scrape it.

One of the things we take most seriously is to make sure that our customers emails are never, ever compromised in any way.

Thanks Alex.
