    Hi there,

    I'm afraid that PHP is a server side language, which means that it is executed on the server before being sent to the browser.  So it is impossible to use PHP on a form that is already displayed.  However, if I understand your question correctly, you want to track form submissions yourself, outside of Jotform.  Is this correct?  You can do this by changing the Thank-you url of the form so that it goes to a page on your own server.  Then get that page to send you an email.  Note as well that the notification email that jotform uses will do exactly the same thing, so it might be a waste of effort.  But if you really do want to handle the email yourself, check out this link on custom thank-you pages:
