Send email from form without SMTP Server?

Send email from form without SMTP Server?

Hi,

I am working on a form for a client where I want the results to send an email, however the hosting company doesnt have an SMTP server set up on the account. The client handles email through their own internal servers and not through the hosting account, so there is no SMTP server to send email through. And there is no option to set up one on the hosting account. Is there a way to send an email with UE without that?

the email must be sent to an SMTP server in order to be relayed to the recipient.

the SMTP server doesn't need to be on the host, it can be any SMTYP server that you have access to.

Jason,
Hoping you are still there to answer issues. How can I send emails through the universal emails without an SMTP login or use PHPMail to send them.
In Universal Email it asks for an SMTP password but I can't find where it saves it or uses it to authenticate. Thanks.

If you use Mail instead of PEARMail it won't ask for a SMTP username or password.
