Sending email from another server

Hey everyone!

I have a small problem and I was hoping that someone here could help me. Here it goes:

I’m hosting a website on a server that doesn’t support mail() function. It’s disabled or something and I have no way of contacting the webmaster to enable it or anything.

This company I’m doing this website for wants a contact form on their website. How do I do this? Is it possible that I could somehow forward data that user enters on the clients server to my server and use mail() function from my server?

Hope you know what I want. Thanks for any help.

Have a nice day,


change the provider!
no mail() support, unreachable.
only one of this would be reason enough for me.

u may just put in a absolute URI as form-action pointing to ur server, and point them back to a “email send” page on the clients server with a location-header.

maybe u wanna have a look a this class: (afaik it’s not using the mail function)

Yeh I just found this phpmailer and I’ll look into it or I’ll just make a redirection for that contact page to my server (: I’m getting tired of this

PS: There’s also a class called swiftmailer ha! (:

Thanks for your help! Have fun,
