Hello Brad,

Welcome to RT. I think the best way to do what you want is one web form for 
each queue, each form sending email to the queue's email address. There's 
no special email format required to do that.

To get the custom field values from the form into RT, you should use Dirk 
Pape's excellent ExtractCustomFieldValues add-on (see 
http://wiki.bestpractical.com/index.cgi?Contributions under the Scrip 
Actions heading). This does involve adding extra headers to the  mail sent 
from the form to the RT mailgate.

Good luck.
