Sending an email without using Mail()

Recommended Posts

Is it possible? My server doesn't have mail() activated for what they all "Security Reasons".
I'd like to be able for a user to send an email to me from the website, but I haven't been able to figure out a way to do this without using the mail() function.

Can anybody help?

Switch hosts?

You can try to write directy to port 25 using the [a href=\"http://us2.php.net/sockets\" target=\"_blank\"]socket functions[/a], but you would have to generate all of the correct headers. If you want to do this, I suggest you read and understand [a href=\"http://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc2821.txt\" target=\"_blank\"]RFC 2821[/a] "Simple Mail Transfer Protocol".
