<CFPOP>

In Step 7, “Using Email with ColdFusion MX,” we looked at using the <CFMAIL> tag to send email via our web server. The <CFPOP> tag enables you to retrieve mail via your ColdFusion Server. Using a combination of <CFMAIL> and <CFPOP>, it is possible to build an entire web-based email application.

Macromedia provides a demonstration of just such an application. If you log in to ColdFusion Administrator and follow the link to Code Examples, you will find a sample email application called Crazy Cab, as shown in Figure 1.
