Send mail with attachment

I'm trying the same thing as another mail I see down here. But I can't even get the attachment to work from the server.
When using the "objSendMail.AttachFile" I get the error:
Microsoft VBScript runtime error '800a01b6'

Object doesn't support this property or method: 'AttachFile'

Is there any setting somwhere (that I can't find) to get the attachment to work?
I guess I'm one step behind the other guy.. I got the upload part done..
The problem is to attach a file in the mail.
This is my current code:
Dim objSendMail
Set objSendMail = CreateObject("CDONTS.NewMail")
            
objSendMail.From = From
objSendMail.To = Till
objSendMail.Cc = cc
objSendMail.Bcc = Bcc
objSendMail.Subject = Subject
objSendMail.Body = Message
objSendMail.AttachFile = filename
                        
objSendMail.Send

Set objSendMail = Nothing

Why do I get that the AttachFile is not valid?

Thanks,
~Gizmo

pass the value to the following fn and try the following code. this is especially useful when u have to attach more than i file...

Note here  request.form("getName") is
like "c:\temp\x.txt*c:\temp\y.txt"

request.form("getName") is
like "x.txt y.txt"

sub Sendmail(fromwho,towho,subject,BodyData,tocc)
dim mymail
set mymail=server.CreateObject "CDONTS.Newmail")
mymail.from=fromwho
mymail.to=towho
mymail.cc=tocc
mymail.subject=subject
mymail.body=BodyData
if Request.Form("getName")<>"" then
if instr(Request.Form("getName"),"*")>0 then  
a=split(Request.Form("getName"),"*")
b=split(Request.Form("BFAttch")," ")      
 for i =0 to ubound(a)
 if instr(Request.Form("getName"),b(i))>0 then  
 if trim(b(i))<>"" then
 mymail.AttachFile  a(i)',mid(a(i),instr(right(a(i)),"\"))
  end if
end if      
next
else
mymail.AttachFile  Request.Form("getName") ',mid(Request.Form("getName"),instr(right(Request.Form("getName")),"\"))
end if
end if              
mymail.send
Msg="Mail Successfully sent"
set mymail=nothing
end sub

Are you providing the right path to the file?

It does not matter what I write there... If i put the path to "c:\config.sys" it still gives the same error..

Hi Gizmo,

I've used CDONTS to send mail in HTML format using the following code, the only difference is that I use .AttachURL to attach an inline image (in the HTML) but it works to attach a non referenced file too.


Dim myMail
Set myMail = CreateObject("CDONTS.NewMail")
 
myMail.From = "address@company.com"
myMail.To = "address@company.co.uk"
myMail.Subject = "HTML Mail"
myMail.BodyFormat = cdoBodyFormatHTML
myMail.MailFormat = cdoMailFormatMime
myMail.Body = HTMLCodeHere

' Attach all inline images referred above to the message.....
myMail.AttachURL "D:\Inetpub\wwwroot\images\rtype.gif", "RType.gif"

myMail.Send
Set myMail = Nothing

Use objSendMail.AttachFile(filename) since AttachFile is a method of CDONTS NewMail object, not a property.

The objSendMail.AttachFile(filename) is the way to do it.. But if I use it that way I get the extremly good error message:

error '80004005'
Unspecified error

/sendmail.asp, line 74

I'm thinking if lines if symbols like : and \ or . is causing the error?

is it?

I think it's strange anyway...
I'm lost!

I'm having exactly the same difficulty in understanding this as Gizmo.  Why is there a function
objSendMail.AttachFile(filename)
in the first place if you have to find a new way to use it ?

bbalaCommented:
CDONTS  does not support the attachment of more than one file with
"," seperator as like the ordinary attachments.

 That's why we have to do it like adding one by one as i have done above.
 It works fine for me
