This tag attaches a file or adds a header to an e-mail message. It can only be used in the cfmail tag. You can use multiple cfmailparam tags within a cfmail tag. You can use this tag to include a file, such as an image, in an HTML mail message. The file can be displayed inline in an HTML message, or as an attachment, as Example 2 shows. To include multiple files, use multiple cfmailparam tags.
Example 1: This view-only example uses the cfmailparamtag to add a header to a message, attach files, and to return a receipt to the sender.
<cfmail from = "email@example.com" To = "firstname.lastname@example.org" Subject = "See Important Attachments and Reply"> <cfmailparam name = "Importance" value = "High"> Please review the new logo. Tell us what you think. <cfmailparam file = "c:\work\readme123.txt" type="text/plain"> <cfmailparam file = "c:\work\logo15Jan.gif" type="image/gif"> <cfmailparam filename = "readme.txt"> <cfmailparam filename = "logo.gif"> <cfmailparam name="Disposition-Notification-To" value="email@example.com"> </cfmail>
Example 2: This view-only example displays an image in the body of an HTML message.
<cfmail type="HTML" to = "#form.mailto#" from = "#form.mailFrom#" subject = "Sample inline image"> <cfmailparam file="C:\Inetpub\wwwroot\web.gif" disposition="inline" contentID="image1"> <p>There should be an image here</p> <img src="cid:image1"> <p>After the picture</p> </cfmail>
<cfmail to="firstname.lastname@example.org" from="email@example.com" subject="Filename with valid html entities"> <cfmailparam file="#expandPath(".")#/test%7c.txt" decode="false"> </cfmail>
