Writing applet to send info from forms to email address

Question:
I am wondering if I can write an applet that will send information from a number of forms to my email address without all the %$= etc. and without using CGI scripts (my server doesn't allow CGI scripts).

Answer:
If the SMTP port (25) on your web server hasn't been disabled by the system administrator, you can open a socket to it and mimic the SMTP protocol. Let's say your host is www.sun.com:

Socket s = new Socket("www.sun.com", 25);
   PrintStream out = newPrintStream(s.getOutputStream());
Then send the string:
 HELO xxx
   MAIL FROM: yyy
   RCPT TO: baker@www.sun.com
   DATA
   
. QUIT
Note the misspelling of "HELO". I've done this on purpose to make the point that the xxx and yyy can be anything; SMTP doesn't check. Don't miss the "." on the second-to-last line.
