Cold Fusion code question

Hi,
I am looking at some cold fusion code that I didn't write and trying to figure out something.
Here is the code:

<cfcomponent displayname="Email" output="false">
      <cffunction name="getEnvProperAddress" access="public" output="false">
            <cfargument name="emailAddress" required="true" />
            <cfif application.environment neq "pro" and application.environment neq "beta">
                  <cfreturn application.email />
            <cfelse>
                  <cfreturn arguments.emailAddress />
            </cfif>
      </cffunction>
</cfcomponent>



I am particularly interested in this line:  <cfreturn application.email />

I need to figure out where the email address that is being returned is coming from.

This CF code runs on a web server that has SQL server as it's back end. There are many stored procs in SQL server but it doesn't look like a stored proc is being used here.

There is a file at the root level of the web server called Application.cfc but I don't see any reference in that file to email addresses.

Thanks for the help!

FYI -- the above code is being called on the web page like this:

<cfset emailto="#(email.getEnvProperAddress(theEmail))#">


Also wondering what "theEmail" is referring to. Appears to be an object, but where is it coming from?

Never mind, I figured out that 'theEmail' was a set variable.

search your entire code base for Application.environment and also search for Application.email
that should give a clue as to where they are being set
chances are the values are in a db table and when the Application starts the table is queried and the Application vars are set.

if you can't find Application.environment or Application.email then search for just environment and email
hopefully there aren't too many results
the syntax of setting them may be a bit different than cfset Application.environment for ex
