Make sure your NTFS permissions allow IUSR_servername (or whoever is using this object) to instiantiate it.

Recently i discoverd to my disappointment that i did'n have ASPmail installed. Well my opinion is that this should be included in the package of ASP. Well it's not. Thats why it didnt work. The problem now is that this ASPmail cost money. The question to you Percyn or somebody, is how can i use something like ASPmail but for free?

The offending line is:

  Set Mailer = Server.CreateObject("SMTPsvg.Mailer")

Either, the object class is not registered, or you have no access permissions to the object...

Try the following for more information about ASPMail:

   http://www.serverobjects.com/comp/Aspmail2.htm

About the free ASPMail, I can't find any. But, you can built it by sending appropriate information  on a SMTP socket.

Well,
     ASPMail is a 3rd party Active Server Component and yes, it costs some money to register it. However, if you use IIS 4.0, it comes with an SMTP server and a SMTP component for free.
