    i'm trying to send mail from asp server in two ways,

    the first uses CDONTS.Newmail:
    <%
    Dim objCDOMail
    Set objCDOMail = Server.CreateObject("CDONTS.NewMail")

    objCDOMail.BodyFormat = 1

    objCDOMail.Subject="test"
    objCDOMail.From=""
    objCDOMail.To=""
    objCDOMail.Body="this is a test."
    objCDOMail.Send
    set objCDOMail=nothing
    %>

    and the second uses CDO.Message:
    <%
    Dim objCDOMail
    Set objCDOMail = CreateObject("CDO.Message")

    objCDOMail.Subject="test"
    objCDOMail.From=""
    objCDOMail.To=""
    objCDOMail.TextBody="this is a test."
    objCDOMail.Send
    set objCDOMail=nothing
    %>

    i know CDONTS is no longer used, but i had to check it.
    when i upload and run these files from the server, nothing happens, no
    mail is being sent.
    now,
    is it a sytax problem?
    or perhaps free hosting servers simple don't allow sending mail?


    thanks in advance,
    bgs

  2. I cant remember the ins and outs of cdonts I haven't used it for a long
    time.


    But it would probably be easier to use CDO instead.

    this example adds a read receipt, but you can take some lines lines out

    thanks
    meanwhile i figured out it didn't work because most of the free-
    hosting services simple don't offer SMTP support

    Or perhaps the server is not running SMTP Services? Or using a non-standard
    configuration, which will require you to update objCDOMail.Configuration?

    Why don't you ask the hosting company?
