What Email facilities do you provide?

The email service provided by kudos.net.nz is the Hosted Email product from OpenSRS. This product is 100% compliant with Internet electronic mail standards. It implements the SMTP, POP3 and IMAP4 RFC specifications.

Each mailbox can be configured to forward mail to another address or to automatically respond to incoming mail with a pre-defined message. With any POP3 or IMAP4 email client, users can download their incoming mail from their mailbox on our servers.

All accounts are provided with an industry standard automatic client configuration facility. This allows most modern email clients to self-configure.

You can create an email service for each domain name configured for your account on our servers. Where you have multiple domains on our server you may either create a unique email service for each domain or you may define domain names as aliases for other email services you have established.

Postboxes need to be added for an account, mail will be sorted on our servers prior to delivery. If an email arrives for an address without a postbox it will be rejected.

The product includes the ability to view and send emails, as well as changing configuration settings for your postbox, from the Internet.

Do you provide a FormMail facility?

Yes

Conditions of use

This facility may only be used by sites hosted on the kudos.net.nz servers
The required 'RECIPIENT' input field may only point to an email address owned by the owner of the site
This facility must never be used to generate spam

Overview

FormMail will send an email message to the 'RECIPIENT' address containing the details entered into all the <INPUT> tags on the form.

Details

The page must include a <FORM> tag pair. The forms 'METHOD' parameter must be set to 'POST' and the 'ACTION' parameter must be set to 'http://www.kudos.net.nz/FormMail.cfm'
There must be an <INPUT> tag with the 'NAME' parameter set to 'RECIPIENT' and the 'VALUE' parameter set to YOUR email address. This tag will usually have a 'TYPE' parameter of 'HIDDEN'
There must be an <INPUT> tag with the 'NAME' parameter set to 'REDIRECT' and the 'VALUE' parameter set to the URL that will be displayed on completion of processing. This tag will usually have a 'TYPE' parameter of 'HIDDEN'
There must be an <INPUT> tag with the 'NAME' parameter set to either 'EMAIL' or 'MAILFROM'. This tag must not have the 'TYPE' parameter of 'HIDDEN' as this is the field into which the user will enter his email address
You may have an <INPUT> tag with the 'NAME' parameter set to 'SUBJECT'. The 'VALUE' parameter will be loaded into the subject field of the ensuing email
You may have an <INPUT> tag with the 'NAME' parameter set to 'CC'. The 'VALUE' parameter will be loaded into the carbon copy field of the ensuing email
You may have an <INPUT> tag with the 'NAME' parameter set to 'BCC'. The 'VALUE' parameter will be loaded into the blind carbon copy field of the ensuing email

Are all ColdFusion tags/functions supported?

All ColdFusion 5 functions are available.


There are a number of ColdFusion tags which are intended for Intranet applications and need to be disabled to provide adequate security on shared use servers such as ours.


All ColdFusion 5 tags are available with the following exceptions:

  • The <CFCONTENT> tag is disabled but has been replaced by the <CF_KS_CONTENT> tag. The parameters and syntax are the same with the exception that all paths are relative to the directory in which the current script is run. <CFCONTENT> uses absolute paths. Pathing back from the scripts directory is not allowed.

  • The <CFDIRECTORY> tag is disabled but has been replaced by the <CF_KS_DIRECTORY> tag. The parameters and syntax are the same with the exception that all paths are relative to the directory in which the current script is run. <CFDIRECTORY> uses absolute paths. Pathing back from the scripts directory is not allowed.

  • The <CFFILE> tag is disabled but has been replaced by the <CF_KS_FILE> tag. The parameters and syntax are the same with the exception that all paths are relative to the directory in which the current script is run. <CFFILE> uses absolute paths. Pathing back from the scripts directory is not allowed.

  • The <CFOBJECT> tag is disabled.

  • The <CFREGISTRY> tag is disabled.

  • The <CFADMINSECURITY> tag is disabled.

  • The <CFEXECUTE> tag is disabled.

  • The <CFSCHEDULE> tag is disabled.

The following ColdFusion 5 tags are available however they are known, under certain conditions, to cause ColdFusion servers to hang. For that reason kudos.net.nz reserve the right to remove or disable any ColdFusion pages found to contain the following tags. These tags have been deprecated in favour of the more generic <CFQUERY> tag which can handle all the functionality of these tags:
The <CFINSERT> tag
The <CFUPDATE> tag
