ASP Email Form and SPAM Filters

    Hello all,

    I'm using CDO to send email from an ASP form on my website. This has been
    working great for the past year or so until last week. On January 2nd we
    noticed that the majority of the messages coming in were missing a lot of
    information. After testing it myself I found that it wasn't a user error. I
    did a response.write on my content string and found that it is populated
    correctly. I then tried another contact form on another website on our same
    server to find the same problem.

    Beginning on January 1 our ISP (also our web host) installed a SPAM filter
    for our incoming email. Does anyone think that this could be the problem?

    I'm going to reboot our web server at 10:30am CST and see if that solves
    anything but I just wanted to see if anyone else has experienced anything
    similar to this.

    Thank you for your comments,

    - J

    I had a problem with Verizon refusing and/or delaying email from
    my ISP which required weeks to remedy, but if you're missing
    information from messages that sounds more like a problem in your
    ASP script.

    That's what I thought originally. However, this has been working for over a
    year up until the 2nd of January. There is no date funciton in teh script
    and it happens on two different websites on the same server. When I
    response.write the content variable it shows everything just fine. I'm
    stumped. We're going to turn off the SPAM filter for a day and see how it
    works after that as a process of elimination. I've also recently completed a
    virus scan on the server which came up clean.

    I just redirected the email to my personal home account and it worked just
    fine.
    No virus found on the web server.
    Reboot did not solve problem.

    Turns out that I was using vbCr for carriage returns in my code (stuff I
    wrote when I was first learning ASP). Our new SPAM filter also has a virus
    checker that didn't like the vbCr in the code and removed everything between
    them. After updating all of my vbCr to vbCrLf all works fine agian.

    Glad you've got it sorted. In the future please don't start a
    new thread for every reply as it makes for a very disjointed
    conversation.
