Is there a VBSCRIPT object that provides functionality for sending email messages to a SMTP mail server?  I have an .ASP form handler and I need to not only update my database with form variables, but also send an automatic email to the web administrator to inform them theres been an update.
Thanks in advance.

Thanks ggambott,

I've looked into those two options.  I have to upgrade Perl on our web server and I hope to test Aspmail today.

The new Internet Information Server 4 beta 2 can be downloaded
from Microsoft. This new version has a brand new SMTP server
and YES, it includes new VBSCRIPT objects for all e-mail
functions and much, much more. It takes quite a while to download
it but it's worth the wait.

IIS 4 will not be an option for our corporate intranet for quite some time.  They move too slow for that so I must pursue another option.

Thanks for the reply.
