Put your script in a function in your module and a MENU_CALLBACK in your
hook_menu() so it can be reached, use drupal_json() to return any results and
the path in hook_menu().
In the function you can use $_GET to collect the query string, remember to run
any user supplied input through check_plain(), test for valid email addresses
You might also want to consider using serverside mailinglist software such as
mailman or ezmlm.
