    how to use cfmail without specifying username and password??

    karthick_WD

      Hi pp,

       

      i have been trying to use the cfmail functionality to send and receive e-mails connecting to the smtp server of <MyUniversity>

       

      i am creating a page where, at the end a e-mail has to be sent from <someone@univ.edu> to <user@univ.edu>

       

      i am connecting with the univ server from the cf server to test whether the e-mails are delivered.

       

      the e-mails are sent only if i mention the <Username> and <Password> fields belonging to the <someone@univ.edu>

       

      for my test case i used my own id and the if i set the username and pwd, the e mails are sent, otherwise the emails are not getting delivered.

       

      can someone suggest why this is happening and i have to make sure that at the end of launching the site, i dont have to get the username and password, because i will not be given access to it as a developer.

       

      Please suggest me wat to do.

      i am using the simple cfmail function.

       

      <cfmail

       

                  server="smtp.<univ>.edu"
                  port="25"
                  from="example@univ.edu"
                  username="example@univ.edu"
                  password="**********"
                  to="receiver@univ.edu"
                  subject="testing testing">

                         <testing the mail functionalities>

      </cfmail>
