cfmail replyto versus cfmailparam reply-to

Jul 26, 2012 8:46 AM

Can anyone tell me the difference (if there is one) between using the replyTo attribute in the <cfmail> tag versus using <cfmailparam name="reply-to" value="" />? Thanks!

    Off the top of my head I can't.  If I were sufficiently curious, I would first read the documentation for each tag.  Then I might run something with each tag to observe the behaviour.

    I suspect there aren't any differences: I imagine the replyto was added to <cfmail> for expediency, given it'll be a reasonably common param to wish to set.


    The quickest way to check fro yourself is to send two emails:

    1. with the replyto address in the <cfmail> tag;
    2. with the replyto address as a param.


    Inspect the source of the email messages when they arrive and observe there's no difference.
