Joomla Mail Form

Hi Experts,
I'd like to include a simple PHP mail form (email address, name, message body) in a joomla article.

Putting the HTML in the article seems obvious (the form elements etc), what is the simplest way to include the PHP script to handle sending the mail?  Any ideas?

Overall I just want to quickly include a basic email form in an article without adding a component or module.

I like to use Joomla Forms ( it is commercial but what I like about it is that it has some very strong anti-spam features, it's very easy to use and very powerful at the same time.

With the addition of IxEdit not it can even handle conditional forms (that change based on the user's input.

I have tried almost every form component available for Joomla and I find this to be the easiest to use.

I would recommend using a forms component as they have built in the submit / email functionality, but you can store the submitted info in your database if you wish.

I prefer using ChronoForm, you can use it for free (it will show powered by ChronoEngine) or you can pay $35 to have an unbraded version.

I prefer using ChronoForm as it can easily be set up in many different ways.

Thanks for the help everyone, we ended up adding the form through civiCRM instead.
