Using Friendly E-Mail Addresses

accepts e-mail sender and recipient addresses in the TO and FROM attributes respectively. If you specify an address in the standard format (name@domain) then that is what will be displayed in the recipients mail client. If you’d like to provide a friendly name (plain text name to be displayed instead of the address) you should specify it in escaped double quotes followed by the e-mail address in between signs. For example, to send mail to “” and display “Ben Forta” you could do the following: TO=”””Ben Forta”” “. (Applies to: ColdFusion All)
