    CFMAIL and HTML content

      I have created a newsletter page for a client and I would like to give him the option of sending it via cfmail but I cant seem to send the dynamic content as I get errors with nesting.

      The page is pretty complicated but comes in fine until it is in the cfmail tags.

      Is there any way to copy the html of a page and send it to another page to be sent by cmmail?

      Any suggestions would help.

              This error message explains your problem.

              Error Occurred While Processing Request
              Invalid tag nesting configuration.
              A query driven cfoutput tag is nested inside a cfoutput tag that also has a query attribute. This is not allowed. Nesting these tags implies that you want to use grouped processing. However, only the top-level tag can specify the query that drives the processing.

                Thank you for your response. I use the same code without the CFMail tag and do not get and error. I have removed the information but left all the tags so you could see that nothing is nested Query in Query. Unless the CFMAIL tag is itself a type of query.

                Thanks for your time and knowledge,

                  What if you created the email text in a varaible, then drop it into the CFMAIL tag at the end. That would remove the nesting.

                  So, you would start a variable at the top and the variable would contain all the HTML you want in the email. You then do all you looping, conditionally adding info to the variable as you loop. Then, at the end just drop the variable into the CFMAIL tag?

                    I have found a great solution in CFINCLUDE. I was able to include the page withing the CFMAIL tags
