1. Does the .cfm file display in other browsers.
2. I have tested the page that you have posted and did not get an error "FROM" as you have mentioned. Are you sure it is not a error on "FORM"?

I have a strange feeling that the issues you are having are with the javascript and not coldfusion. Can you provide a url to access the page live to allow closer investigation?

Hi there Spiderant, Many thanks for you post.


No the cfm file will not display in any browser i have not idea to what the error could be, If i could just get the form the display in a web browser that would be a great start.

I have two link that you can take a look at

backupserver1.123-backup dot com:8080/client/signup.cfm

backupserver1.123-backup dot com:8080/client/insert-user.cfm

Any help would be great

Once again many thanks

Attribute validation error for CFMAIL.
The value of the FROM attribute is invalid. The length of the string, 0 character(s), must be greater than or equal to 1 character(s).

It's an error from cfmail. It's just saying the sender address cannot be empty. Where in your code are you using CFMAIL?

Found the code on another site. It's this:

<cfmail to="#Form.Email#" [B]from=""[/B] subject="Blah Blah - New Account Confirmation" type="html">

The FROM address shouldn't be blank. Most mail servers would probably reject it anyway. Just put a valid email address in there.

That was easy, i feel silly now lol

Many thanks for you help.!
