Hi, I was wondering
with cfmail can one use an attribute like
smtp.FromName which is used with asp mail?
this is used to display a name in the from field on the mail header instead of/and showing the e-mail address
thanks

Hi MMsabry,
<cfmail
   to = "recipient"
   from = "sender"
   cc = "copy_to"
   bcc = "blind_copy_to"
   subject = "msg_subject"
   replyto = "reply_to_addr"
   failto = "fail_message_addr"
   username = "user name"
   password = "password"
   wraptext = "column number"
   charset = "character encoding"
   type = "msg_type"
   mimeattach = "path"
   query = "query_name"
   group = "query_column"
   groupcasesensitive = "yes" or "no"
   startrow = "query_row"
   maxrows = "max_msgs"
   server = "serverspecs"
   port = "port_id"
   mailerid = "headerid"
