Default Avoiding getting blacklisted

The marketing department wants to use our primary domain name in a marketing email campaign via an online marketing software package. This sounds like a bad idea and a risk at getting our domain blacklisted. Anyone have any thoughts on this? Should we use a different domain? Perhaps a "sent on behalf" address, etc?

You could set up a Domain Name, fully legit and above board and have a redirect in their. Unless you are a very well recognized company say for example like a bank or for example in england the UK; .gov.uk you could be right about the black list.

If folk decide not to take notice and individually black list, I'd not be too concerned but the likes of the ISPs, you could speak to them direct and explain your position.
