    Converting a small php mail app to a cf mail app, is it possible?

    cfsetNewbie Level 1


      I am trying to use a small app I picked up and it uses a php email tag in a java scrip / jquery based email applet for a web site. The php tag sends a callback to the jquery when the message is sent, if it doesn't, the jquery throws an error and tells the user nothing was sent. I know how to use a cfmail tag, but I am looking for help with sending the callback to the jquery.


      I'm posting both sets of code, the php code, and then the cf code:


      PHP version


          //declare our assets

          $name = stripcslashes($_POST['name']);

          $emailAddr = stripcslashes($_POST['email']);

          $comment = stripcslashes($_POST['comment']);

          $subject = stripcslashes($_POST['subject']);   

          $contactMessage = "Message: $comment \r \n From: $name \r \n Reply to: $emailAddr";


          //validate the email address on the server side

          if(eregi("^[_a-z0-9-]+(\.[_a-z0-9-]+)*@[a-z0-9-]+(\.[a-z0-9-]+)*(\.[a-z]{2,3})$", $emailAddr) ) {

              //if successful lets send the message

              mail('/*RECIPIENT EMAIL ADDRESS*/', $subject, $contactMessage);

              echo('success'); //return success callback

          } else {

              echo('An invalid email address was entered'); //email was not valid




      This is the cf version I'm working on:

      <cfparam name="FORM.name" default="">

      <cfparam name="FORM.emailAddr" default="">

      <cfparam name="FORM.comment" default="">


      <cfmail to="info@astie.com"






      <cfmailparam name="X-Priority" value="1"/>

      <font face="Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif" color="##000000" size="2">

      <b>Feedback Form!!</b><br>


        <b>Customer Name:</b> #form.name#<br>

        <b>Customer Email:</b>   #form.emailAddr#<br>

        <br />






      Is this possible? I was thinking a cfif statement.. but am a little unclear how to approach it. I can make the jquery available as well if needed, but If I mirror the code in the phpo it should work without having to mess with the java.
      Thanks for any help.
