Re: Email form

You can try to look at php mail if your web host allows it; the syntax is pretty straightforward but you need to be aware that there usually are limits on the number of emails you can send hourly/daily/etc .... This is in order to avoid having your server blacklisted as spam by certain services (eg yahoo). This means, in particular, that some of your emails can end up undelivered if you receive too many visitors (typically hundreds) too quickly. A solution to this would be to have dedicated hosting (but in this case you run the same risk of being blacklisted, that is why the best alternative would actually to use alternative email servers providers).
If your host doesn't allow php mail then you can try using the smtp protocol (I believe it to be more robust/reliable but the setup is a little more tedious); I'd recommend you try php mail first.
