In this chapter, you learned how to use ColdFusion to send and receive e-mail messages. You saw how to use the <cfmail> tag to dynamically build and send e-mail based on data from queries and other sources within the ColdFusion environment. You also saw how ColdFusion can send out messages in HTML format and how to attach files to your outbound messages by using the <cfmailparam> tag. Finally, you read about how to use the <cfpop> tag to retrieve e-mail messages from a POP3 server mailbox.

Now that you've had several chapters' worth of practice in working with CFML, you've probably also had the chance to make plenty of mistakes. Like any computing language, CFML has a syntax that must be followed for your templates to be processed successfully. Unfortunately, all it takes is a simple typo for you to introduce a syntax error into your code. ColdFusion does a good job of providing detailed error information, but that information can sometimes be overwhelming to a new developer. The next chapter looks at some of the common errors you can encounter while doing ColdFusion development and how you can eliminate them. It also introduces you to some of the debugging features built into the ColdFusion Administrator and ColdFusion Studio.
