    Since you're asking, I'm going to go ahead and assume you don't know much about what you're actually doing. This means you should rent out space on a virtual server with a provider (Rackspace or whatever) and do things that way.

    Otherwise your server is just going to get broken into and used to send pleas for help from deposed Nigerian dictators.

    Also, what's wrong with e-mailing them with your existing mail server/address?

    If you go the third party route, you need to be sure that you live within their terms of use. That is many companies forbid spamming, i.e., mass mailing so keep that in mind. It all depends on the volumes you're talking about.

    I agree with Miles, why not use the your companies existing mail server to handle this.
