Yes and no. If it is an AIR client you could make requests direct to the SMTP server.

Not sure what this means. All pages rendered in a normal web browser will be HTML. Flex is a fat client that can do a bunch of things HTML cannot and you can talk to email servers from an AIR app. I'm not sure off the top of my head if browser security restrictions will prevent a Flex client making requests to an email server too, but my guess is you'll maybe run into problems.

I mean embed a flex email component eg 300px X 250px only, to an html or php page, can I?
Any case to send email, is involved server side scripting(PHP) or this can be done, with Action script only?

You are aware that PHP page and HTML page mean the same thing, yes? How you build your HTML is irrelevant here.

See my previous response. A quick google suggests people normally implement this with a server side component.
