The send_mail tag, as the name suggests, can be used to send emails.

<cms:send_mail from='' to='' subject='Feedback from your site'>
Anything here (between the opening and closing tags of send_mail)
will form the body of the email that will be sent.

Anything enclosed within the opening and closing tags will form the body of the message to be sent.
Each line should be separated with a LF (\n). Lines should not be larger than 70 characters.

There is no provision (yet) for attachments.
