On 11/27 a Coldfusion server error/event log grew rapidly in size reducing free space on the partition to almost nil unexpectedly. Many CF services began to fail/throw errors. I archived the offending log(s) & moved them to a new partition, freeing up 1.4 G of space. I rebooted the server and all has appeared to be well except that the cfmail function no longer sends email. No error is thrown. CF logs indicate that it was sent. Using the CF Admin console I pointed the mail settings to another, newer SMTP server. The connection was verified but still cfmail does not work. Thru Telnet I can get a greeting from the SMTP server so I do not think this is an NT issue.
Any guidance as to what to check or try will be appreciated. The email admin and I are both stumped.
Note: Our development server which is set up virtually identical to the production server does properly send. And so far I have not found any CF Admin settings that are different between the two servers.
<cfmail from="email@example.com" to="firstname.lastname@example.org"
subject="cfmail test" server="smtp.fpg.edu"
