Chapter 26. Interacting with Email > Retrieving Email with ColdFusion

Retrieving Email with ColdFusion

You already have learned how the <CFMAIL> tag can be used to send mail messages via your ColdFusion templates. You also can create ColdFusion templates that receive and process incoming mail messages. What your templates do with the messages is up to you. You might display each message to the user, or you might have ColdFusion periodically monitor the contents of a particular mailbox, responding to each incoming message in some way.

Introducing the <CFPOP> Tag

To check or receive email messages with ColdFusion, you use the <CFPOP> tag, providing the username and password for the email mailbox you want ColdFusion to look in. ColdFusion will connect to the appropriate mail server in the same way that your own email client program connects to retrieve your mail for you.
