I hesitate to offer code since I don't work with PHP much, but
you need to match that ZIP code from the form against a table that
associates all ZIP codes with an email address.

That said, depending on how complex the correlation -- can you say
all ZIps between 93100-97799 go to one email, or is the breakdown
really granular -- you might want to fork off a separate process to
take forward the mail and let the original return a thank you page
to the submitter without waiting.

What's the matchup table look like?
