View Full Version : Email stuck inside a folder

08-24-2004, 12:45 AM

I've been trying to implement an ASP Email script ( http://www.brainjar.com/asp/formmail/ ) for my work's web site. I read the instructions on what to change as far as emails and whether CDONTS, etc. I also made sure the SMTP service got installed. Well, the script works great, but the email does not go out. It's stuck in the queue folder.

We're running:

Windows 2000 Server w/SP4
.net 1.1 framework is installed.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Try using CDO for Win2k instead of CDONTS. CDO for Win2k is the newer implementation. It has a few changes.

Dim objCDO, strFrom, strTo, strCC, strBCC
Dim strSubject, strMessage

Set objCDO = Server.CreateObject("CDO.Message")
objCDO.To = strTo
objCDO.From = strFrom
objCDO.ReplyTo = strFrom

'objCDO.bcc = strBCC
objCDO.Subject = strSubject
'if you want to send as html formatted message
'objCDO.HTMLBody = strMessage
'Use this to send as plain text message
objCDO.TextBody = strMessage

'display a message on succesfully sending the mail
If err.number = 0 Then
Response.write "The Message has been sent"
End If

Set objCDO = Nothing
