(I don't use Mac, so I can't help you there but ...)

You don't really need a mail server just to test cfmail code. CF will attempt to send the email, and if you don't have a mail server installed, and it'll just end up in the undeliverable folder. You can use something like SpoolMail at riaforge.org to view the messages.

SpoolMail is simply a HotMail/Gmail/etc web based reader for the email in your undelivered folder.

OR just open them w/notepad (or the Mac equivalent). (The message files are essentially just text.)

It's been a while since I've used it, but I'm pretty sure it handles html messages.

That worked perfect, I also notice in CF10: Server Settings > Mail > Undelivered Mail it allows you to view it...Thank you

Nice. That must be a new feature in CF10. Learn something new every day :)
