There are a couple of ways. If you want to "log into" the exchange server and create a MAPI session, you will need to use CDO.

Otherwise you can send mail to ANY email address using an SMTP server and either IIS 4.0's SMTP component, OCXMail or ASPMail.
All of these are COM components. You can learn more about these by visiting http://www.flicks.com/ASPMail/aspmailref.htm#ASP or referring to your IIS 4.0 help docs.

I really need help with the mechanism to link into Exchange, ie. CDO. What does this stand for? How do I use it? etc. An example would be great.

CDO = Collaboration Data Object.
If you have the outlook web client, install those and you will get a pretty good idea of how to use CDO.
You can also visit http://premium.microsoft.com/msdn/library/sdkdoc/amsamples_3lgz.htm , which gives you almost everything about CDO.

Frankly, this is all you are going to get for 100 points. If you are trying to accomplish a particular task, state it, so that we can help you. If you want code samples, using CDO, I am afraid you will have to increase the points...it is not that simple. I have hacked the outlook web client and re-pieced it together for a majot firm and charged them an arm and a leg.
