Hmm, Not sure if I can post a link to a funny book on a subject close to this, but, lets see what the mod has to say about it.

The mod says change "who" to "whom" to make the sentence correct. And it's not a grammar problem, it's a usage problem.

Do we expect formal writing in marketing emails? Outside of formal writing, this is (so far as I can tell) acceptable.
Slowly putting together a "replacement" forum at http://writerswriting.proboards.com.

It's still under construction, but come take a look.
