CFform and CFMail

I would like to include CFFORM tags within CFMAIL tags.  When the mail recipient receives the email he is asked to complete a small form and submit. These 3 fields populate a table in a database.

Is this possible? My code is as follows:


<CFMAIL TO="xxx"  
     FROM="yyy"
     SUBJECT="zzz
        type="HTML"
        server=?????>

<CFFORM  NAME="FORM" ACTION="email_response.cfm" METHOD="POST" >
     <TABLE>
     <TR><TD>Email Address&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;<INPUT TYPE="text" NAME="EMAIL_ADDR" SIZE=20></TD>
     <TD>Yes&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;<CFINPUT TYPE="Radio"  VALUE="Yes" NAME="DECISION"></TD>
     <TD>No&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;<CFINPUT TYPE="Radio"  VALUE="No" NAME="DECISION"></TD>
     <TD><INPUT TYPE="hidden" NAME="INVOICE_NBR" VALUE=#Form.INVOICE_NBR#  SIZE=20></TD>
     
     </TR>
     <TR>
     <TD><INPUT TYPE="Image"  SRC="travel/images/submit.gif"  NAME="Submit"  ALIGN="right" BORDER="0"></TD>
     </TR>
     </TABLE>
</CFFORM>
</CFMAIL>



email_response.cfm:


<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 3.2 Final//EN">

<HTML>
<HEAD>
     <TITLE>Travel Application Approval Submittal</TITLE>
</HEAD>

<BODY>

 
<CFQUERY NAME="QAPPROVALS" DATASOURCE="#db#" >
INSERT into TBL_APPROVALS
VALUES('#Form.INVOICE_NBR#','#Form.EMAIL_ADDR#','#Form.DECISION#')

</CFQUERY>



</BODY>
</HTML>

Not sure if that'll work.  Have you tried it yet and if so what happens?  Also what errors do you get?

Also you might  not want it done like this becasue not all email boxes will show HTML in the preview window.  Also alot of users have this feature disabled.  I would put a link on the email to the form running on your server and handle it that way.  Of course your idea would be cool but not very practical  I think.

HI there,

Yes what ur trying to do is definately possible.

but u got to keep one thing in mind - before going ahead with this. [All ur mail recipients should be able to recieve HTML mails.]

if u r sure abt this ... go ahead with this - it shoudnt be a problem - as ive myself done this many a times ...

so be cool !!!

I know its been a while since this question was last addressed but I would like to reopen if anyone's interested.

My latest input on this is that I tried to implement the cfform tag within cfmail but when I hit submit ...nothing happens.  The email is no longer generated once I add the cfform code in.

Can anyone explain why this is happening?

P.S.  Please note the increase in points.

It took me a long time to get this to work but it finally did.  I had some html problems that I had to resolve before I could get this to work.

Thanks to all
