The FormMailer extension allows forms in the wiki to be sent to a specified list of recipients.

Any standard form can be mailed with this extension, all that needs to be done is to ensure that the form contains a value called "formmailer" in it. As long as a value of that name is posted, the formmailer will know that the data from the form is to be sent. The name of this special variable can be set to something else in the $wgFormMailerVarName global configuration variable.
Configuration of this extension is done via two global variables which can be set in your LocalSecodeings file after the include of the FormMailer.php script.
||A list of email addresses which should receive posted forms.|
||If a variable of this name is posted, the data is assumed to be for mailing.|
