Sending Mail Using ASP/VBScript to Exchange Mail Box

P: n/a
Here's the scenario. I'm currently using cdosys/asp to send mail to
our SMTP server. We use a product called MailFilter to check for SPAM.
It doesn't work very well. If MailFilter isn't working cdosys also has
problems and emails don't get sent. As these email are confirmations
for customer's bookings this means lots of customers calling to see
where their confirmation emails have gone. The root of the problem is
MailFilter but that here to stay. So I had this thought of sending the
message to a queue of some sort so at least they will get to the
customer eventually rather than being lost for good. So here's the
question:

Can I/How do I send messages to a mailbox on our exchange server using
cdo.message?

If anyone has any other solutions please let me know.

Many Thanks

an easy queue could be done like that:

on your webserver, set up SMTPSVC. you can then use this smtp server (i.e.
use localhost as target smtp) as a relay from your web-generated mails to
exchange (or wherever they are targeted to). the smtpsvc will keep trying to
deliver mails in case of MailFilter not running on the remote smtp.

also you could directly write raw mails into the smtpsvc's pickup folder.
this will enqueue the mails and eventually send them once the target machine
is back up running smooth.

See the FAQ:

How do I send e-mail with CDO?

SMTPSendUsing should be 2, specify the SMTP server as your Exchange
server, make sure Exchange can relay for the system your web site is
on.
