ASPmail server component woes

Hi,

I'm trying to set up a secure ordering system for my site, using the ASPmail server component to send the orders encrypted using PGP.

I have never used ASPmail before and am having a few problems getting it to work properly.

I can use it to send simple email, no problem.  However, when I try to extract the body text from a file, I simply get a blank email.  No errors are produced, the email is sent without any problems.  It's just blank.

The code I'm using is below.

Once I have sorted out the GetBodyTextFromFile problem, I'm probably going to need help getting the PHP bit to work...

Does anyone have any ideas?

Justin

Try to do a
Mailer.GetBodyTextFromFile(Server.MapPath("PHPtest.txt"), false, false);
Response.Write(Mailer.Body);

Does it give you the body of phptest.txt?

I think, but am not sure, that you need to pass the whole path to the file:

if (Mailer.GetBodyTextFromFile(Server.MapPath("PHPtest.txt"), false, false))

Assuming that Server.MapPath is also available in JScript...

Tried your suggestion, but it had no effect.

Any other ideas?

I get the following output:

--------------------------------------------------
ASP Mailer Test
Mail sent...
Mailer.Response:
Microsoft JScript runtime error '800a01b6'
Object doesn't support this property or method
/pgpmail3.asp, line 36
--------------------------------------------------

do you know where I can find documentation on the ASPmail object model?

Hi again CJ,

I have made a bit of a cockup, I managed to get the name of the file wrong!

It should have been PGPtest.txt rather than PHPtest.txt.

Sorry.


I am now having problems getting PGP to a file to encrypt a text file that I can load up as body text.

The encryption key I'm using has been registered with PGP on the server.

The code I'm using is below:

What am I doing wrong?

I have solved my problem by using a combination of the ASPMail to send the mail and NSDPGP to do the encrypting.

I would still be happy to award the points for this question to anyone who knows why the code using just ASPMail didn't work, or can show a working example of sending encrypted email using just ASPMail.

Hi  Micropage,

Sorry to take so long to reply.  You have probably solved your problem by now, but if you haven't then let me know and I will explain my solution.

Cheers,

Justin
