Web servers are not responsible for sending email. You need an email server to send email, unless you are only sending it to yourself, in which case you can send it directly to your email address by using SMTP authentication.

 

What exactly are you trying to accomplish?

Which requires a mail server still.

 

Are you on a shared host?

Do they support the mail() function?

 

If so, the it should be no problem.

 

why not just use a "contact us" form?
