the issue is that if the from is not an existed email account i get a verification error on mail log of coldfusion althouth the username is correct... This used to work in cf8, did they now changed it?
That cannot be. The cfmail documentation will tell you that ColdFusion may even accept an arbitrary string as value of the from attribute. Something must have gone wrong somewhere else along the line. Perhaps a space in the e-mail address or an error at your mail server.
It also may be that your mail server (gmail for example) inforces that the from field and the account name match (to prevent spam for example).
