Does this exist in Sitefinity 4.4? Nice to have forms but how come it can't send emails? Is there a control available in the market place? or an example how how to do this otherwise?

Hello Nimit,

Thank you for contacting support.

There is tutorial plus sample project available in this blog post for forms e-mail notifications.

For the subscribe form:

using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.Linq;
using System.Web;
using System.Net.Mail;
using Telerik.Sitefinity.Configuration;
using Telerik.Sitefinity.Services;
using System.Text;
using Telerik.Sitefinity.Web.Mail;
using System.ComponentModel;
namespace SitefinityWebApp
    public class Class1 : Telerik.Sitefinity.Modules.Newsletters.Web.UI.Public.SubscribeForm
        protected override void InitializeControls(Telerik.Sitefinity.Web.UI.GenericContainer container)
            this.SubscribeButton.Click += new EventHandler(Class1_BeforeFormAction);
        private void Class1_BeforeFormAction(object sender, EventArgs e)
            var smtpSettings = Config.Get<SystemConfig>().SmtpSettings; 
            MailMessage message = new MailMessage();
            message.From = new MailAddress(smtpSettings.DefaultSenderEmailAddress);
            message.To.Add(new MailAddress(""));
            StringBuilder sb = new StringBuilder();
            sb.AppendFormat("You have one new form response on  form. The response is sent from IP address");
            message.Subject = "Forms notification";
            message.Body = sb.ToString();
            message.IsBodyHtml = true;
            message.BodyEncoding = Encoding.Unicode;
            message.SubjectEncoding = Encoding.Unicode;

Create a class in your solution and create a custom subscribe form as in the sample above. Register the new control in Administration->Settings->Advanced->Toolboxes->PageControls->Sections->(choose section)->Create new and enter (namespace.class) of the class from the sample:
Controll type: SitefinityWebApp.Class1 (in my case, I encourage you to create better naming)
Name: Class1
Title: Custom Subscribe Form

To receive the e-mail you mut have valid SMTP settings configured in Administration->Settings->Advanced->System->SMTP.

Please let us know if you have anymore questions.
