The best way to avoid any issues is to prequalify the people you email. Instead of a follow up call you should be doing an intro call with permission to send the email.

I also recommend you use a reputable service to ensure email transmissions are appropriate and safe, and that you can monitor response (who opened the emails, deleted them and so on).
