    Php mail script


    we have a Flash application which uses CF9 and it's native web-server (small site, 8 users all internal, no external access) - all works well!

    I'm adding a Purchasing function to the app which entails sending an email to the vendor. Since we use MSExchange, I would prefer to use MAPI to drop the email into exchange but I can't establish how to do that. An alternative is to use a PHP script and mail(). It seems that the PHP script would live in wwwroot but will CF execute it if I call it with LoadVars from Flash?

    I guess 'cos I didn't know it existed - thank you for the information.

    Sorry, I just assumed everyone knew CF could send email. :-)
