Customer Data Collection Tool

One of our departments is is looking for a tool that does the following:
- Set up a web-based database with a few custom fields
- Send it to a contact list of customers
- Allow them to open a link in the email and fill out 'their fields' and submit it to the database

In writing this, I just thought that survey software would probably do the trick.  Anyone have any software suggestions for these requirements (survey or non-survey)?

    Yeah "survey software" would do the trick. We use LimeSurvey it's free as in speech and beer. It's only survey software because it's marketed that way, it's just a database and web forms. But that handles the email lists (Limesurvey calls em tokens) for you.
    You could always code your own, but why reinvent the wheel?
