Problem sending mail (CDOSYS)

Hi everybody,

The following code for sending email (found on msn I think) works find
when used in a .VBS file. I double click the file and the mail is send.
When I use the same code in my .ASP application I get the following
message:
"The pickup directory path is required and was not specified"

Where to specify that directory?

As stated in the article http://www.aspfaq.com/show.asp?id=2418. I did
'web share' c:\inetpub\mailroot\pickup and got no result. It seems that
sending email using a .VBS file does not use the same ressource as using
a .ASP file even if the component is the same (CDOSYS)! How can'I solve
this problem?

here is the code i use in the .asp file:

Dim iMsg
Dim iConf
Dim Flds
Const cdoSendUsingPort = 2

set iMsg = CreateObject("CDO.Message")
set iConf = CreateObject("CDO.Configuration")
Set Flds = iConf.Fields
With Flds
.Item("http://schemas.microsoft.com/cdo/configuration/sendusing") =
1 ' local server
.Item("http://schemas.microsoft.com/cdo/configuration/smtpserver") =
"http://127.0.0.1"

..Item("http://schemas.microsoft.com/cdo/configuration/smtpconnectiontimeout")
= 10

..Item("http://schemas.microsoft.com/cdo/configuration/smtpServerPort") =
25
.Update
End With

With iMsg
Set .Configuration = iConf
.To = "<to@x.com>" 'Enter a valid email address.
.From = "<fr**@x.com>" 'Enter a valid email address.
.Subject = "This is a test CDOSYS message (Sent via Port 25)"
.HTMLBody = TableData
.Send
End With

Set iMsg = Nothing
Set iConf = Nothing
Set Flds = Nothing
Thank's in advance

It may be permission related. If the user that IIS is running under doesn't
have access to the folder that SMTP drops into it may give you an erroneous
error.

Hi,

The user has admin rights and the directory is shared (LAN and WEB). Is the
'pickup' directory must be mention in the .ASP file or SMPT use it by default?

thank's

Hi,

Ok, I found the reason why..! This is due to a security modification. Look at
http://www.slipstick.com/files/Q324037.doc
I run XP Pro sp2 and the workaround uusing the PickUp directory works find for
me.
I needed to add :
..item("http://schemas.microsoft.com/cdo/configuration/smtpserverpickupdirectory")
= sPickupPath

hope this help
