Email Via Forum V0.4

Description:
----------------
As is stands at the minute, the only way for Members to send emails to other Members is through their own email program. This Mod will add a new option in Admin Center to enable Members to send emails via the forum. Members will then have the option to receive emails even if their email address is hidden.

Notes:
--------
- This feature only works for Members. If you allow Guest posting, then emailing Guests will still open the users own email program.

Credits:
----------
A big thanks to Carsten for his help with passing user data through a hidden form field.

And thanks to Mick (www.info4alien.de) for the German and German_Du Language translations.
