Mailer ocx problems

I have a abmailer.ocx that is supposed to send mail via smtp. On my test server(win nt 4.0) the mail is sending fine.
My production box is highly secure and is unable to send the mail.
I did a reg trace and found everything looks the same so it looks like it is installed correctly.
The settings look like this:
the path is using c:\proga~1\etc~1\etc~1
on the working box which is correct, but when I put it in on the production box it doesn't work.
Is there a reason a server will not see this? How can I fix this?

Have you verified the rights? Depending on the level of security, it could be pretty tight. You could verify a rights problem by TEMPORARILY makin the anon user w/ admin rights.
A basic secure config also is to turn off 8.3 name creatation, a path like c:\progra~1\blahblah, will not work. On your working box, check for that path in the registry (regedt32.exe) and you might have to manually put the full path c:\Program Files\16bit Install\badapp.ocx
