Setting Imoprtance level on E-mails using CDO in IIS 6.0

Good Morning,

My question refers to setting importance levels for Emails sent using IIs 6.0. Initially the webserver that was sending E-mails used IIS 5.x, but since the upgrade I can not use the configuration for E-mail Importance. I keep getting the following error:

Microsoft VBScript runtime error '800a01b6'

Object doesn't support this property or method: 'Importance'
I've searched and searched but I can't seem to find any help on line.

Does anyone have any ideas on how to alleviate this issue?

The code reads;

ObjSendmail.Importance = request.Querystring("SelImportance")

As you can see the information is collected from another form, but I don't quite know how to fix it.

Let me ask you a very straight-forward question. Is it worth it to try to fix this? email importance is something that was built in to email fifteen years ago, and no one has used it since. Are you actually using it, or do you want to just delete that line?

Hi Mal,

Having checked MSDN's documentation the Importance value of a mail object using CDO can be one of three values - 0 (low importance), 1 (normal) and 2 (high).

You are setting the importance value using Request.Querystring("SelImportance") - however most (if not all, in my experience) parameters in a GET request to server are parsed as string values - so chances are SelImportance will equal "Low", "Normal" or "High" (or "0", "1" or "2").

If the data is qualititative (i.e. uses words like Low etc.) to describe the message priority then you need to use a Select Case like so:
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. Select Case Request.QueryString("SelImportance")
  2.     Case "Low"
  3.         ObjSendMail.Importance = 0
  4.     Case "High"
  5.         ObjSendMail.Importance = 2
  6.     Case Else
  7.         ObjSendMail.Importance = 1
  8. End Select
Or, if your data is quantitative (numbers, but the server recognises it as a string value) then simply use:
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. ObjSendMail.Importance = CInt(Request.QueryString("SelImportance"))
Addenum: the other thing I have noticed - you say that you have just migrated from IIS 5.x to 6.0? What object are you using for the SendMail command? Documentation shows that CDONTS is no longer supported as of IIS6 and has been superceded by CDOSYS which would involve using this line of code:
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. Set ObjSendMail = Server.CreateObject("CDOSYS.Message")
Hope this helps.
