Hi @RogerSteinberg 

A  workaround:

You can add a textbox with an asterix, turn the asterix into windings font then turn that into a hyperlink where you can use mailto:

@RogerSteinberg,

Currenly there are only 3 actions available with button: back, bookmark, and Q&A. Perhaps email option will be added into future update of Power BI Desktop.
