Sending CDONTS HTML email issue

P: n/a
I have a web form where a client can select which site members to send
an email to.

This form is populated from the contents of the member table, so the
form can have 0-x names listed on it depending on member expiration dates.

When the form is submitted, the code loops through the form contents and
sends an email to those members that meet the selected criteria.

All this worked perfectly when I was sending text emails, but since I
changed, it sends the message correctly, but the last person gets
everyone else as well. For example, if I have three members (mem1, mem2
and mem3) to send emails to, here is what happens

mem1 gets the correctly formatted message

mem2 gets mem1's correctly formatted message plus mem2's message - one
right after the other.

mem3 gets mem1's correctly formated message, mem2's correctly formatted
message and mem3's message - one right after the other.

I'm not talking separate emails here, mem3 for example gets the body
content 3 times in one message, all correct for each member.

Here is the code, sorry it is long, but I didn't want to leave anything
out. I literally just swapped the plain text code for the HTML code and
added the necessary code in the send portion to send HTML rather than
plain text. I didn't change the logic at all.

Thanks

Brett

You likely forgot to clear the string that contains the HTML code for each
message...

Stop using CDONTS already. See http://www.aspfaq.com/2026
Stop using a DSN. See http://www.aspfaq.com/2126
If you're using SQL Server:
consider using mail from within SQL Server - http://www.aspfaq.com/2403
use stored procedures - http://www.aspfaq.com/2201

Just inside your FOR loop, place this:

MailBody = ""

Otherwise, on the second iteration, you're just adding more text to the
MailBody you had in the previous iteration.

I also recommend keeping this big block of code in an #include file so you
don't have to look at it when you're trying to develop/debug. I notice you
never use mem_email or mem_first within the body itself, but it would be
easy to incorporate. In the include file:

<%
mailbody = "Hello __firstname__, big long string here with a bunch of
useless HTML that will never be seen by most viewers..."
%>

And in your code:

For iLoop = 0 to iCount
mailbody = replace(mailbody, "__firstname__", mem_first)
Set objMsg = CreateObject("CDONTS.NewMail")
objMsg.From = "ke***@powerquotesplus.net"
objMsg.To = mem_email
objMsg.Subject = "About Your Powerquotes Plus Membership"
objMsg.Body = MailBody
objMsg.BodyFormat = 0
objMsg.MailFormat = 0
objMsg.Send
Set objMsg = nothing
Next

Isn't that much easier to look at?????

"BaWork" <ba****@sprynet.com> wrote in message
news:O7**************@TK2MSFTNGP15.phx.gbl...
I have a web form where a client can select which site members to send
an email to.

This form is populated from the contents of the member table, so the
form can have 0-x names listed on it depending on member expiration dates.

When the form is submitted, the code loops through the form contents and
sends an email to those members that meet the selected criteria.

All this worked perfectly when I was sending text emails, but since I
changed, it sends the message correctly, but the last person gets
everyone else as well. For example, if I have three members (mem1, mem2
and mem3) to send emails to, here is what happens

mem1 gets the correctly formatted message

mem2 gets mem1's correctly formatted message plus mem2's message - one
right after the other.

mem3 gets mem1's correctly formated message, mem2's correctly formatted
message and mem3's message - one right after the other.

I'm not talking separate emails here, mem3 for example gets the body
content 3 times in one message, all correct for each member.

Here is the code, sorry it is long, but I didn't want to leave anything
out. I literally just swapped the plain text code for the HTML code and
added the necessary code in the send portion to send HTML rather than
plain text. I didn't change the logic at all.

Thanks

Brett

I tried that and it didn't work - maybe I did it wrong. What would be
the correct syntax?

Wouldn't it just be:

MailBody = ""

and I place it just above this piece of code:

Set objMsg = nothing

I didn't have to do that with the plain text version though....

Thanks

You should put it at the top.

Plus, because of on error resume next, perhaps the line is being skipped,
who knows what's happening when you're creating and destroying that huge
object every time in your loop...

Gazing into my crystal ball I observed "Aaron [SQL Server MVP]"
<te*****@dnartreb.noraa> writing in
news:u4**************@tk2msftngp13.phx.gbl:
Stop using CDONTS already. See http://www.aspfaq.com/2026
Stop using a DSN. See http://www.aspfaq.com/2126
If you're using SQL Server:
consider using mail from within SQL Server -
http://www.aspfaq.com/2403 use stored procedures -
http://www.aspfaq.com/2201

Just inside your FOR loop, place this:

MailBody = ""

Otherwise, on the second iteration, you're just adding more text to the
MailBody you had in the previous iteration.

I also recommend keeping this big block of code in an #include file so
you don't have to look at it when you're trying to develop/debug. I
notice you never use mem_email or mem_first within the body itself, but
it would be easy to incorporate. In the include file:

<%
mailbody = "Hello __firstname__, big long string here with a bunch
of
useless HTML that will never be seen by most viewers..."
%>

And in your code:

For iLoop = 0 to iCount
mailbody = replace(mailbody, "__firstname__", mem_first)
Set objMsg = CreateObject("CDONTS.NewMail")
objMsg.From = "ke***@powerquotesplus.net"
objMsg.To = mem_email
objMsg.Subject = "About Your Powerquotes Plus Membership"
objMsg.Body = MailBody
objMsg.BodyFormat = 0
objMsg.MailFormat = 0
objMsg.Send
Set objMsg = nothing
Next

Isn't that much easier to look at?????


Additionally, remove all the presenational markup and use CSS, but put the
CSS in the head (some mail clients remove/ignore external stylesheets). It
would probably also do good to validate the HTML <http://validator.w3.org>
as you might have some unclosed tags.
