This project is a ColdFusion port of the venerable formmail Perl script found on Matt's Script Archive [http://www.scriptarchive.com/readme/formmail.html]. Every attempt was made to make this a drop-in replacement for the perl script, so that the only necessary change for an existing html form is to modify the form action from formmail.pl to a ColdFusion script (such as formmail.cfm).

Beyond the port, some new functionality has been added, most significantly is integration with Jake Munson's CF Form Protect [http://cfformprotect.riaforge.org/] to help deter form spam. I also began the integration of language resource bundles, but currently only have an English translation.

The download has the formmail.cfc file, an index file and a super-simple sample form. Just extract the zip file into your webroot (it will create a "cfformmail" folder), and browse to http://localhost/cfformmail/ for instructions on modifying the files so you can run the sample.
