Does Renpy have the capability to open one's default email program and prepare an email? (The game I'm working on is augmented-reality-ish.)

I know, I'm writing terribly in English.

I'm writing a Renpy textbook (in Russian). https://yadi.sk/d/ZX_DonP63USRru Update 22.06.18

I will translate your project into Russian for free.

Just a side note, i am sure you will inform your player but just as reminder please make sure that they know about it!
I personally feel very uncomfotable with the thought of a game doing something on my computer, email etc.

Oh definitely! It's only something that would engage if the player specifically requested it. It's purely for the player's convenience and not anything else.
