Set up an error handler in your Application.cfm/cfc file and use <cfmail...>  to email the error message details to whatever account you want.

Method 1:
Use <cferror type="exception" template="yourErrorHandlerPage.cfm" ..> in your Application.cfm/cfc file. On yourErrorHandlerPage.cfm dislay an error message for the user and use <cfmail> tags to email the error details.

Method 2:
Use the onError method to display an error message for the user and use <cfmail> tags to email the error details.

ok i've added this to my application.cfm
<cferror type="request" template="../../../error.cfm" mailto="serveradmin@company.com" exception="any">

and this to my error.cfm

<cfmail to="#error.MailTo#" from="CF_Server@company.com" subject="#error.DateTime#">
#error.Diagnostics#
#error.HTTPReferer#
</cfmail>

however, the cfmail isn't mailing and it outputs everything within <cfmail> in the body  

I have cfmail tags in many applications on this server, so I know it isn't a mail config issue.

You're using a different "type" than in my example.  You can only CFML tags in a type="exception" handler.  They're not allowed for type="request".
