I would put something in the script that checks the referrer as well, that way only your form(s) can use the send function. (Learnt from bitter experience of someone hitting a send script on a site with a ton of spam.)

Very simple to set up as well.

You can have your script that handles the contents of the POST of the form 
contents on another server, just modify where it ends up:

<form action="http://otherdomain.com/contact_script.php" method="post"
