What sites exist for automated die rolling?

In other words you can choose which and how many dice to roll, the site rolls it and gives and answer, and also may email the rolls to whom you choose.

Please list one per answer, and any details about it.

I know a few, but I'll just put up one as a sample answer for now.

Community Wiki please as this one is a list and doesn't have a definite answer. – neo Jul 10 '10 at 18:55
@neo, please see this question on SO Meta and many others there about the purpose of CW. – Lance Roberts Jul 10 '10 at 19:16
This is not SO though, so unless I am mistaken SO meta discussion on the content (not the engine) does not apply here only WA meta. In the future I would assume it to be different communities. – phwd Jul 10 '10 at 19:24
This definitely needs to be CW. – Al E. Jul 11 '10 at 0:09

A friend wrote one : http://outils.epinardscaramel.com/D/D.php

The main aim is to roll dice for role playing games. But it doesn't mail the result.
The website is in french though.

Easy to use :

  • Write how many dice you want and how many faces it has : "1d4" (1 die with 4 faces), "1d10", "3d100"...
  • You can also add a modifier : "+2" or "-100"
  • You can roll several dice, just separate them with spaces : "1d10 2d6+3"

Random.org can do this, although you'll have to email the results yourself.

ACTS is a site for boardgaming over the web, that also includes a die roller.
Any number of sides, any quantity, but only one format.
To use it you have to be signed up on the ACTS website (free). It will email answers, but only to those signed up on the site.

While this link may answer the question, it is better to include the essential parts of the answer here and provide the link for reference. Link-only answers can become invalid if the linked page changes. – user221287 Dec 5 '12 at 16:55
