CDONTS creating error '800a01ad'

RIP
The time came to upgrade the webserver from 2k server to
2k3 server. In 2k server, the primary web ran flawlessly
day after day. I burned the web's files to disk, and put
them into the new server, seemed to work til i came to a
point where the script needed to mail some people. Script
is written in ASP 3.0, and the error is

Microsoft VBScript runtime error '800a01ad'

ActiveX component can't create object: 'CDONTS.NewMail'

/members/processors/promotions.asp, line 150

the code on line 150 is:
Set MyCDONTSMail = CreateObject("CDONTS.NewMail")

i read a little bit about this in the knowledge base, but
it didnt seem to help, is the cdonts object named
something else now? i went from iis 5 to iis 6. or could
it possibly be permissions set wrong on a dll somewhere?
any ideas?

It's quite possible it's a DLL or permissions thing as I have CDONTS running
just great on one of my domains which is hosted on 2003 server and runs
IIS6, and there's been no problems at all.

CDONTS dont come with 2k3 as far as I know... you need to use CDO instead...

Not sure how Steve has his running, perhaps they installed the .dll for it
on that server - who knows :o)

Rob, I don't actually have direct access to my server's, my host looks after
them for me. I didn't realise it didn't come with it as standard..... my
host knows I use CDONTS, so probably installed it for me. (they're lovely
like that ;o)).
