Any way to send an email from a Confluence page without buying a plugin?

The end goal is to have a Confluence page with several questions and a button (i.e. "Submit") at the end which will send an email to a predefined address.  It will likely be a one time or rare usage scenario and paying for a plugin is not feasible.  I don't mind developing something but without plugins such as HTML, EMAIL, FORMS I am unclear on how it could work.     Thanks in advance for any suggestions or clarifications.

Is the email address for a distribution list?  Is the alert that Confluence sends to those who are watching the page not going to do what you need?  

I'm interested and curious about your use case and why you prefer an email to a Confluence alert.

Use case is really a one off form that sends an email upon submit but I don't want to buy a plugin.   Just thought there might be something free out there or a crafty workaround which you wouldn't want to do if you did forms all the time but would work for a once ever form.

Not within Confluence no. You could possibly embed some external service using an iframe inside a Confluence page to do it.

However, if you are possibly open to doing it with an add-on I would recommend ConfiForms. I don't work for them, but honestly, it is hands-down the best add-on we have purchased for Confluence and the price is super reasonable.

May have to go the iframe route just seems like it should be easier.  Thanks for your response.
