What is the ticket number? Was this during our support hours?
Yes you can send emails. You need to use something like Mandrill or Sendgrid for example. Both offer free accounts and can send at least 10,000 messages a month. Both work with all languages. We do not allow you to use the GearHost mail server options for sending automated emails, IE relay. We don't have a code sample but all the code samples are extremely simple and easy to find just using a quick Google search. Let us know if you have any issues.
