From a rails social question and answer site using Twitter Bootstrap, I
want to allow users to
share a question via email.  The question would have an email icon that
opens a modal where an email address, name, and comments could be
entered.  I am not interested in saving the entered information.  It
would get passed to action mailer for the email.  What is the best
approach for this?  Code helps :)

Thanks.

Are the address & name that of the sender or recipient? Where does the
other (sender or recipient) info come from? What does the mail contain?
Just the comments? At any rate, what actual information do you need to
know? Have you read
http://guides.rubyonrails.org/action_mailer_basics.html yet?
