CDONTS and Windows Server 2003

Could someone please tell me if I can use CDONTS in W 2003 Server environment to send emails the same way it is used in W2K Server. I have heard that CDONTS is no longer available in W 2003 Server and if so, how can I send emails from ASP page...
Many thanks in advance

You can register the CDONTS DLL manually but consider migrating your code to
CDO.

CDO is generally used instead of CDONTS on IIS 5 and after (actually the
SMTP service within IIS) which is generally on servers after Win NT4
(although I think CDONTS is generally still supported too).

Here are changes I made to convert CDONTS stuff to be CDO stuff instead:

o Change objCDONTS to be called objCDO (actually this is just a cosmetic
change)

o This:
Set objCDONTS = Server.CreateObject("CDONTS.NewMail")

Changed to this instead:
Set objCDO = Server.CreateObject("CDO.Message")

o This:
objCDONTS.Body = strEmailBody

Changed to this instead:
objCDO.TextBody = strEmailBody

o This removed:
' Importance.
' (0=Low, 1=Normal, 2=High)
objCDONTS.Importance = 1

When we ported to CDO, this was all we had to do -- on some of our servers.
As we set about remediating scripts, we discovered that this simply did not
work on all of our servers. We needed to explicitly specify the
configuration on those servers, even when using the pickup directory.
Example:

var Msg = Server.CreateObject("CDO.Message"),
Config = Server.CreateObject("CDO.Configuration")

Config.Fields.Item(cdoSendUsingMethod) = cdoSendUsingPickup
Config.Fields.Item(cdoSMTPServerPickupDirectory) = cdoPickupDirectory
Config.Fields.Update()
Msg.Configuration = Config

We never took the time to track down the differences between servers that
was causing this, instead opting for the explicit declaration, which leaves
no ambiguity.

I might have to follow this up myself :) I've just been through the process
of migrating an app from CDONTS to CDO and noticed a 'must specify location
of the Pickup directory' error when running the new email component in local
mode on one of my XP development workstations. Same component works fine on
my Win2000 workstations and staging servers. Thanks for that.

NO, NO, NO! Did you stop to think that maybe CDONTS is not included in
Windows 2003 for a reason? What is wrong with using CDO.Message instead?

Stop it! CDONTS has been deprecated and removed from current versions
on purpose. Use CDO. That's what it exists for.
