Sending E-mail

To send email, use cfmail tag making sure you set asyc=false (see below). Not setting this flag to false may result in undelivered email because mail may still exist in Lucee spooler (Lucee tasks) when your task runner exits.

mail
subject=subject
from=from
to=to
cc=cc
bcc=bcc
replyTo=replyTo
type=type
server=server
port=port
username=username
password=password
useTls=tls
usessl=ssl
async=false {
writeOutput(emailBody);
};

Connecting to SMTP Services Using SSL or TLS

If you cannot connect to a SMTP server that requires SSL or TLS, like Amazon SES, one workaround is to install a local SMTP server and configure it as a relay to your SMTP server. This has been done successfully on Windows servers using hMailServer (free, opensource), which is fairly easy to install and configure as an SMTP relay.
