Hello all,

I've been developing a coldfusion page that will email a student and faculty member when a form is requested. I had to provide an email and password in the local Coldfusion Administrator page in order for it to email. I am now attempting to run these pages on a remote server and have been told that I do not need to provide email credentials on the remote Coldfusion Administrator page, that only the mail server is required. However I am not having luck and think that I was incorrectly informed about this. Can anyone confirm/deny?

This is entirely dependent upon the mail server configuration. Some mail servers require authentication to send mail, others do not. You can test this easily enough from a command prompt using telnet. Note that modern Windows servers don't have telnet preinstalled any more, so you'd have to install that Windows component itself.
