Email only, eh?  I used to send messages to my boss via webform...I  
suppose that would imply that it's possible to have a message sent by  
some scripts to a website, unless there's captchas or something like  
that to defeat that method.

But like I said...most people would already have whitelisted vitally  
important domains, or you could send periodic "keepalives" to test  
the system.
