Using a form fields for email sign-up

So I have been building a website that i have recently thought of with these lessons and code academy and have most of the site done.

I want to add an area where people can receive emails from us on a semi regular basis and now know how to create the appropriate fields. People have also recommended i use Microsoft Azure as it allows you 25,000 free emails a month. an someone please explain how i would go about linking my website where people will enter there email to this Microsoft azure account?

You could probably just create a Javascript function to sign users up through an API like Mail Chimp using Node, jQuery or just vanilla-javascript.

Hope this helps.

Unfortunatelly, sending an email to someone would require some back-end language (php for example)

No problem :) Please mark the thread as "solved" so others can see the "solution" instead of posting themselves :)
