Day 13. Using ColdFusion to Handle Email > Deleting Mail with <CFPOP>

Deleting Mail with <CFPOP>

Using the techniques described in this chapter, I can design a complete email client using nothing but ColdFusion. I'd use <CFPOP> in my template pages to get and display users'messages, and <CFMAIL> to send outgoing mail. But so far I've only covered reading and sending mail—what if I want to remove it from the server after the user has read it?

I'd use the third <CFPOP> action, DELETE. This action always works in conjunction with the parameter MESSAGENUMBER to define a specific message to be deleted.
