Known issues with CFmail and CFquery?

I'm facing a problem with inserting into a db in a cftransaction and right after that sending an e-mail.
the cf transaction contains a number of queries, and last one is the insert query.
I tried both ways (since i would like to send the e-mail only when the data is successfully inserted) to put the cfmail inside the cftransaction tag, and outside it.

In any case, all the queries excute correctly except the insert query. If i remove the cfmail, the problem is still presisting. Only when i delete the query and rewrite it (of course no cfmail in this case) that it works!

Any ideas?

one suggestion woul be to put all your queries in a stored procedure if possible...
and after the insert quert send a variable out from the stored proc that indicates wether to send the mail or not...

also don't put the cfmail inside the cftransaction...
inside cftransaction if an error occurs then set a variable to no...

annd before sending the email check wether the variables value is yes or not...

That might work, but do you know why the insert does not function when the cfmail tag is there?
i can understand if everything is wrapped in a cftransaction, but when this is not the case!

Hart,
Thanks for the ideas, they work, but i made a small modification!
I just initialized a variable default "0", and in the transaction i set it to value "1"
I use a cfif statement, if evaluates to true, i include the e-mail template.
Although i think your solution of stored procedures is more elegant, I have no experience with stored procedures!
thanks once more
