Sorry, I don't think the same way everyone else does and sometimes obvious stuff eludes me and I ask stupid questions.....
Why can't you just make the Web app do 2 things at the end of the action:
1. Send the email
2. Update the database
(do you still need step 1)?
Of course you'd have to validate user input because user communication directly into a database can be dangerous - I see you've done a good job of putting most (but not all) of that on the front end.
I guess I'm assuming you wrong the Web app. Is there something I'm missing?
