Can I use JotForm for simply sending emails if I already have a form made?

    I made my own form already (custom html/css) and am trying to figure out how to send myself an email whenever the form is submitted.  

    I really like JotForm, but I am not a fan of how difficult it is to customize the forms.  Therefore, I was wondering if there was a way where I could simple use my form's "action" to call to JotForm so it sends me an email and redirects to another page on my site.  Is this possible?  Thank you very much in advanced!

    That isn't exactly possible because form fields need to be "registered" on JotForm's system before it can retrieve the information submitted and send out emails.

    If you're really into customizing a form, you have an option to create a basic form under your account, get its source code, modify/design it to suit your needs, then finally embed it on your website.

    The input ID's should remain intact though, so that JotForm will know which field is which.
