There's no way to do this using the CFMAIL tag, even with the latest version of CF (4.5).

I am not sure. I would like to wait for other experts to say something about this

You would just add a new line to the SUBJECT attribute for it.  Heres an example:

        <cfmail to="joe@bazooka.com" from="me@me.com"
        subject="Hi there
Importance: High">

You can also use this method for other 'unattainable' attributes such as BCC and REPLY-TO.  Example=

        <cfmail to="joe@bazooka.com" from="me@me.com"
        subject="Hi there
Importance: High
BCC: secretadmirer@me.com
REPLY-TO: mymother2me.com">

Now I hope I have the syntax right.  If it doesn't work just change the colons to equal signs (Its 1 of those), so it might be Importance= High.  But I think its the former.

I am afraid that ur way is not correct. It takes everything as the subject till it meets the quote. I tried : or = and all possible answers. I am still waiting. Thanks,

Sorry about that.  Its than darn Outlook which won't show me the real name of the header.  You want to use the same strategy but use:

X-Priority: 1 (Highest)
or
X-Priority: 2 (High)
or
X-Priority: 3 (Normal)
or
X-Priority: 4 (Low)
or
X-Priority: 5 (Lowest)

If it works for you, (as it should), you can just accept my comment as an answer.

I am afraid that the proposed way way is not working the way it is expected. It takes everything as the subject till it meets the quote. I tried : or = and all possible answers. I am still waiting.

P.S I even tried in the outlook directly by inserting X-Prioity: 1 . But there is no luck

If things work for u, could please send me the actual <cfmail> code.
Thanks,

Ok - this worked for me,

<cfmail from="test@franchisesolutions.com"
            to="dperry@fransol.com"
            subject="Hello there - High
X-PRIORITY: 2 (High)">

This is a test
</cfmail>

Email has been sent.

Make sure that the line break is in there before X-PRIORITY, and that X-PRIORITY is at the beginning of the line.

I believe (don't quote me on this) that the mail server handles the hard carriage return in such a way that a new message header line is started.
