Diagnosing E-Mail Troubles

If you ever need help diagnosing problems with dynamically generated e-mail, check out the Mail tab in the ColdFusion Administrator. There is a checkbox there entitled “Log all email messages sent by ColdFusion” – and checking this box will force ColdFusion to log the complete contents of the generated messages for you to analyze. But use this option with caution – if you need to use it turn it on and then turn it off again as soon as you are done. E-Mail messages (especially if they have attachments) can be rather large, and this option can chew up disk space very quickly. (Applies to: ColdFusion All)
