    Sending Email Through PHP (Easy Question)

    All I'm looking for is a PHP script that sends emails from a form. I have a normal contact form and would like it to send to my email. Something similar to the world famous Formail.pl by Matt's Script Archive, but in PHP form.

    Something fairly simple that doesn't have 1000 extra files to go along with it. I don't need anything that sends attachements, just your normal Name, Email, Comments, etc.

    Someone please point me to a good one.

    Thanks in advance.

    PHP has a built-in mail function that allows you to send emails. You might what to have a look at it.

    been meaning to release that on hotscripts.com
    Easy setup - just alter the proper stuff in form_mailer.php
    Also edit the form.html file to customize the form.

    Thanks to everyone who replied, but I settled with PHPFormMail by Boaddrink.com. Only problem with it so far is that I have to have the script encrypt certain fields, and it's not very friendly to things like that.

    It'd be nice if I actually linked to the write file wouldn't it?
    Fixed.
