Step 7. Using Email with ColdFusion MX

Step 7. Using Email with ColdFusion MX

So far, we have seen how ColdFusion can enhance our web sites through the use of ColdFusion tags and functions. We have also seen how to use ColdFusion to tie into databases so that we can serve up content that is fresh and up to the minute. In this step, we are going to look at how we can use ColdFusion to interact with another Internet service, namely email.

Using ColdFusion, we can get our web site to generate email to do things, such as automatically respond to form submissions, provide automated order confirmation, and send monthly newsletters and bulk email.

In this step, we are going to concentrate on using ColdFusion to send outbound email. ColdFusion also has the capability to receive and process inbound email using a tag called <CFPOP>. For more information on using ColdFusion to receive email, visit the www.LearnColdFusionMX.com web site.
