Converting CDONTS to CDO to send mail from a guestbook to me....

P: n/a
I have been running CDONTS in my ASPpages to send emails to me sent from my
guestbook. It had been working fine untill I upgraded to Server 2003 (I am
also running Exchange 2003) all locally. I will include the code I
originally used. I understand I should switch from CDONTS to CDO mail but
after several sttempts I am finding a very hard time getting the new CDO mail
to work properly. Any assistance with this would be greatly appreciated.
Here is the code:

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

'Set the response buffer to true so we execute all asp code before sending
the HTML to the clients browser
Response.Buffer = True

'Dimension variables
Dim strBody 'Holds the body of the e-mail
Dim objCDOMail 'Holds the mail server object
Dim strMyEmailAddress 'Holds your e-mail address
Dim strCCEmailAddress 'Holds any carbon copy e-mail addresses if you want
to send carbon copies of the e-mail
Dim strBCCEmailAddress 'Holds any blind copy e-mail addresses if you wish
to send blind copies of the e-mail
Dim strReturnEmailAddress 'Holds the return e-mail address of the user
'----------------- Place your e-mail address in the following sting
-----------------------

strMyEmailAddress = "me@mailserver.com"

'----------- Place Carbon Copy e-mail address's in the following sting,
separated by ; --------------

strCCEmailAddress = "" 'Use this string only if you want to send the carbon
copies of the e-mail

'----------- Place Blind Copy e-mail address's in the following sting,
separated by ; --------------

strBCCEmailAddress = "" 'Use this string only if you want to send the blind
copies of the e-mail

'------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
'Read in the users e-mail address
strReturnEmailAddress = Request.Form("email")
'Initialse strBody string with the body of the e-mail
strBody = "<h2>E-mail sent from form on Web Site</h2>"
strBody = strBody & "<br><b>Name: </b>" & Request.Form("firstName") & " " &
Request.Form("lastName")
strBody = strBody & "<br><b>E-mail: </b>" & strReturnEmailAddress
strBody = strBody & "<br><br><b>Comments: - </b><br>" &
Replace(Request.Form("enquiry"), vbCrLf, "<br>")
'Check to see if the user has entered an e-mail address and that it is a
valid address otherwise set the e-mail address to
your own otherwise the e-mail will be rejected

strReturnEmailAddress, "@", 1)
< 2 OR InStrRev(strReturnEmailAddress, ".") < InStr(1,
strReturnEmailAddress, "@", 1) Then

'Set the return e-mail address to your own
strReturnEmailAddress = strMyEmailAddress
End If
'Send the e-mail

'Create the e-mail server object
Set objCDOMail = Server.CreateObject("CDONTS.NewMail")

objCDOMail.To = strMyEmailAddress

'Who the carbon copies are sent to
objCDOMail.Cc = strCCEmailAddress

'Who the blind copies are sent to
objCDOMail.Bcc = strBCCEmailAddress

'Set the e-mail body format (0=HTML 1=Text)
objCDOMail.BodyFormat = 0

'Set the mail format (0=MIME 1=Text)
objCDOMail.MailFormat = 0

'Set the subject of the e-mail
objCDOMail.Subject = "Guestbook Submission"

'Set the main body of the e-mail
objCDOMail.Body = strBody

Hi Rick,

May I suggest that instead of posting all the lines in your file and saying
that you're having trouble getting something to work properly that you
instead explain to us what isn't working, what errors you're getting, what
unexpected results you're getting, and only post the relevant code?

Several working code samples here:
http://www.aspfaq.com/2026

Writing a simple one that works and then augmenting it would probably be an
easier approach than reverse engineering your existing code.

As Aaron says see: > http://www.aspfaq.com/2026
make sure you read the part at the bottom about "80040222" or "80040220"
errors. there are security patches that block access to the metabase by the
anonymous user account.

P: n/a
Sorry, in my haste to include as much information as possible I left out the
most important part.

The exact error I am getting when you click "submit" is:

Microsoft VBScript runtime error "800a0046"
Permission denied
/sarah/thanks.asp, line 164

That lines appears to be pointing to objCDOMail.Send

Please let me know if I have left any other necessary imformation out.

P: n/a
That should suffice. Your server probably has a directory,
C:\Inetpub\mailroot\pickup. When the CDO object executes its send method,
it's trying to write a file to that directory (the .msg file). If the
account running the script, typically IUSR_machine-name in a Web site,
doesn't have permission to write to that directory, you will get this
permission denied directory. So, try giving that user permission to write
to that directory.

Sorry, in my haste to include as much information as possible I left out the most important part.

The exact error I am getting when you click "submit" is:

Microsoft VBScript runtime error "800a0046"
Permission denied
/sarah/thanks.asp, line 164

That lines appears to be pointing to objCDOMail.Send

Please let me know if I have left any other necessary imformation out.
