We did something like this for a non-profit using mailform plus.  We 
built multi-page forms, the last page of which is a confirmation page. 
The visitor can back up if something is incorrect.

We built several html forms for them.  It's not quite as smooth as just 
adding a plugin to a page, but isn't a whole lot more involved (add 
mailform plus plugin, select html form to use). We have most of the 
other fields like where to send the form, which fields are required, 
etc. specified with typoscript, though they could be set on the form 
configuration itself.
