We plan to automatically send daily emails based on cron job criteria from our site built in Drupal 6 and hosted on a Rackspace cloud site using dynamic IPs. To avoid being labeled as spam, we need to have the emails sent from a static IP. Rackspace suggested using mailgun.

Can mailgun or a similar email distribution program be integrated with a website that sends out emails using cron jobs, and is this the best solution?

It must be Linux or other Unix-like. Please always tag your platform, language, other relevant detail. "Integration" and "e-mail" is not informative enough.

Can it be done? I don't see why not.

Is it the best solution?

"Best" is not even vaguely important. If it's a cron job that sends out email daily, then it just has to work and not require much effort to implement.

If "Rackspace" suggested you use it, ask them for a sample implementation, or for instructions on how to do it. Follow their instructions or example and get it set up, then forget about it.
