If I understand your situation, your hosting provider is not permitting outbound email? (Is this correct?)
If so, you may want to look at a mail provider, such as sendgrid, to handle your email traffic.
Thanks for responding. What do you mean by hosting provider. We can send emails from both the server side and the Eloqua side. Now that I have looked at it, I am trying to meet with our dev team to test setting up a form reposting.
What are your thought on a form repost vs. an API?

If your server can use curl or other similar "get" technology, you can transfer data into an Eloqua form using the same URL you would use for a blind form submit. This page has info on how to structure your form submit URL:
Instead of using field merge syntax with the email address, you would take that from your form field.
Downside in this case is sacrificing some functionality with the Eloqua cookie and the contact record. In fact, you'll want to include the parameter "elqCookieWrite=0" so that your server doesn't get associated with any contacts.
