Sending Email

ColdFusion uses the cfmail tag to send email messages using an Internet standard known as Simple Mail Transport Protocol (SMTP). In order for ColdFusion to send email, an SMTP server must be specified in the ColdFusion Administrator under the Mail option. If you don’t have access to the ColdFusion Administrator, the cfmail tag provides an optional attribute, server, where you can provide a hostname or IP address to your SMTP server. The following example shows how to use the cfmail tag to send a simple email message. The example assumes that you are using the SMTP server specified in the ColdFusion Administrator.

<cfmail to="postmaster@example.com"
        from="webmaster@example.com"
        cc="administrator@example.com"
        bcc="postmaster@example.com"
        replyto="system@example.com"
        failto="bounced@example.com"
        subject="ColdFusion can send email!"
        mailerid="My Email Engine"
        server="mail.example.com,mail2.example.com"
        username="pmoney"
        password="cat"
        spoolenable="Yes"
        timeout="900"
        charset="UTF-8"
        wraptext="72">
I just wanted to let you know that ColdFusion MX is now sending email! Isn't this 
the greatest thing?

-Webmaster
</cfmail>
