CDONTS - Microsoft VBScript runtime error '800a0046'

P: n/a
Hi!

I have to do some developing and I'm trying to configure my server to mimic
the operation of our production server. The issue I'm having is that I'm
trying to use CDONTS to send an email under IIS on a Windows 2003 Server.
The server does not have the SMTP service running, but I do have a third
party SMTP/POP/IMAP server running.

I have copied the CDONTS.DLL file and registered it. In the Web Serice
Extensions I have enabled the CDONTS.DLL file.

The object appears to be created properly, but I get an error when the SEND
method executes. (Error and Code shown below)

Obviously I'm missing something else here... Can anyone lend a hand?

Be sure that IUSR_[server name] has NTFS permissions to write files to
\inetpub\mailroot\pickup.

Hrm... that folder doesn't exist. Tried adding it but it didnt't work
(didn't expect it to).

I'm thinking that my problem is the third party SMTP server instead of the
IIS SMTP server.

From what I've seen on Google, I've done everything necessary to get CDONTS
to work under Win2K3...

Any other help would be appreaciated.

That's different. Is SMTP installed?

Not if you're using CDONTS, as that doesn't support external SMTP servers.

From what I've seen on Google, I've done everything necessary to get CDONTS to work under Win2K3...


Oh, you're using Win2K3, eh? CDONTS doesn't exist in 2003. Use CDO.

I don't have a choice... the server I'm coding for uses CDONTS.

I did install CDONTS and register it.

Lack of the MS SMTP server is what's killing me I think. I've got a work
around so it isn't urgent.

Thanks for the help!

Hi,
If IIS SMTP SERVER is not sending your messages you can try this too:
go to properties of your smtp server/delivering/advanced/intelligent host
So you can put the address of other smtp server on your net or even out your
net.
Try it too!
bye,

Well, the production server is running NT I believe. It's my OWN development
server that's running Win2K3, so I'm trying to add the CDONTS functionality
to my own server.
If SMTP isn't installed on the server, I do not believe that
CDONTS will work. I mean, you could create a \inetpub\mailroot\pickup
folder and have CDONTS do its thing, but the messages won't go anywhere.


Thanks! Thats what I figured.
