You won't be able to send emails directly from Flex, so you'll have to build this functionality in the PHP part of your application. From a software architecture point this is also the best place to add the functionality.

Here's a pretty good document to get you started:

the article is fine , i had enough idea about this issue ..
but as i said .. i have more than one outlook email account ...

Well Ok .. in this case it seems this is not a Flex or Flash question, but a PHP question. I would suggest to post this question in the PHP section.

Oh ... I object as my answer is accurate, but not what the author hoped to hear. There is no Email-Server-Accessing Component for Flex/Flash.
