Here's the scoop - am considering hosting inquiry forms on some of my websites that would then get emailed, free of charge, directly to university admissions departments (since they would be inquiries about that university).

BUT - I'm nervous about sending all these emails directly from my webserver. What if one of the schools reports it as spam, and I have issues with the search engines? No good. I rely 100% on organic search traffic.

SO - any suggestions? Perhaps I could log the inquiries in my MySQL database on my webserver, then export them to a contact management system like Salesforce.com and run some sort of email blast out of there? Any better ideas? I just want to be able to send them from somewhere other than my webserver, in case, in case, in case.
