How do I create a global action to send an email


I need to create a global action that allows me to replicate the Send Email functionality on several objects?  I don't seem to find a way to do this.

Trailhead says sending emails via an Action is available only for Cases: "Send email actions, available only on cases, give users access to a simplified version of the Case Feed Email action on Salesforce1" (http://bit.ly/objectspecificactions).
Case-Specific Send Email Action
I'm convinced there's a code-driven way to make a send-email Global Action via Custom Visualforce: https://developer.salesforce.com/docs/atlas.en-us.pages.meta/pages/pages_email_intro.htm.

I haven't looked into it yet. Ask me again after I pass my certification exam :-)
