Make sure you have relaying turned on in the mailserver configuration 
for the host your sending from. That is, if you're sending from 
www.foo.com you have to add www.foo.com(or its IP address) as a host 
that can relay through your mailserver. What mailserver are you running?

CFMAIL isn't a self contained mail package in itself.. It only passes 
the mail on to a functional SMTP server and thats where it actually gets 
delivered from.

Hope that helps..
