smtp server

P: n/a
Hi,

I am setting up a website for a small busines. The web host that they
are using does not have smtp running on their particular server,
instead they referred us to a different server to us for smtp. I just
want to create a few simple mailto links. Is there a way to specify a
smtp server, without having to write a full blown asp script?

Thanks,
Tom

You've lost me. Perhaps I'm just tired, but I don't see the relevance
of wanting to create mailto: links and not having an smtp server. The
mailto: link relies on visitors having an email client program
configured to create a new mail message when they select the link in
their browser.[1] After that, the email message is sent exactly as if
the user had started with the email program.

[1] BTW, this is a good reason to also provide an html comments form,
so that everyone who reaches the web site can contact the company.
