CDO Through IIS or Exchange?

I am trying to configure CDO at my facility and wonder if I should use it
through IIS or our Exchange server? Can anyone point me in the right
direction? We are using Windows 2000 Server with IIS and Windows 2000
Server with Exchange 5.5.

Thanks,
Drew Laing

Which works better for you?

Not really. Both work. Does it make sense for you to use the local
SMTP server or an Exchange server?

Well, what does "should" mean? That's not a joke; what are your decision
criteria?

Bottomline from my perspective is WHATEVER WORKS! But I am just the
programmer here, and cannot do any other modifications, so I need to let my
admin know which I would like to do. Is there any performance gain/loss?

Thanks,

Not really. The main change is a difference in control and physical
connections. If you lost connectivity to the Exchange server, a local
SMTP service could still send mail. But if you want to control email
through a single point for management, anti-virus, logging,
troubleshooting, portability, etc. then you would want only one email
server in the enterprise.
