Hi Ashraf,

set up the mail server IP in ur CFADMIN - if u cant access CFADMIN - ask ur sysadmin to fo it for u OR set it up in
<CFMAIL .. MAILSERVER="100.9.89.45">

<P>
This example uses cfmailparam to attach two files and add a
header to a message.
</P>
<cfmail from = "peter@domain.com" To = "paul@domain.com"
Subject = "See Important Attachments and Reply">
  <cfmailparam name = "Reply-To" value = "mary@domain.com">
  Please read the text file and view the new logo, and let us know what
  you think.
  <cfmailparam file = "c:\work\readme.txt">
  <cfmailparam file = "c:\work\logo.gif">

   u can have a link in ur email as :
    <a href="www.mysite.com">click here</a> to chk my site
</cfmail>
</body>
</html>    

to send HTML & Text copy of emails - use ...
<CFMAIL ....>
  <CFMAIL PARAM ...>
  <CFMAILPART type="text">
  Text version goes here
  </CFMAILPART>
  <CFMAILPART type="html">
  <B>HTML version goes here</B>
  </CFMAILPART>
</CFMAIL>

Hi Anand,
Thank you for the information,
I already i know most of these info, my problem is , I have form it has input fields, and when user submit this form it should insert these data into a database, and i want to send email out to group of users, I already created this to inform them about these data, so i want to have something like expert_exchange, when i get email i click on the link it show me my answer or area, so how can i do this.

ok ...

once the user has submitted the data

1. insert the data in the DB
2. get the list of people need to be informed
<cfquery name="users">
</cfquery>
3. <cfmail query="users" ...>
 html data here to inform all users in the list above ...
add a link here if required
</cfmail>

this way u notify them abt the changes done ...

u can also inlcude a link there ... so they can clikc on it & come over to the relavent page !
