David, my client has contracted to a web-design firm to prepare and host
their website.  The website includes a form to be filled out if a person is
interested.  The web-design firm was supposed to put the data into a file
and ftp it to us, but so far all that has appeared is lots and lots of
e-mails (one per inquiry) with the information inside it.  The e-mail is
machine generated by them, from the forms.

I'm trying to resolve the problem in some other way, as the web-design firm
seems pretty confused about making a data file and FTPing it.

Could you post a sample? That would probably aid in generating ideas.

A few quick questions:
Are these email inquiries human or machine generated?
If human generated, are they free form or form based?
If machine generated, are they encoded anyway (html, xml, etc)?
