The mail() function allows you to send emails, as long as the server has a fully-functional email system already set up.
This function accepts five different parameters, only four of which we will discuss here, and only three of which are required.
|to||Required||Recipient(s) of Email|
|subject||Required||Subject of Email|
|message||Required||Message Body of Email|
|headers||Optional||From, Reply-To, CC, BCC, Date, Etc.|
Listed in order of appearance, the parameters are: mail(to,subject,message,headers)

The addition of headers allows you to specify who the email is from and who should be copied and/or blind copied on an email
HTML emails can be sent by specifying the appropriate content-type in the header.
