hello-

im trying to send mail using CDONTS from my W2K server.
The code below actually sends the message, however an error is thrown.

  Method 'Send' of object 'INewMail' failed

so im not exactly sure what the deal is.

thanks - bg



Dim mobjMailer As CDONTS.NewMail

Set mobjMailer = New CDONTS.NewMail
   
mobjMailer.Send "a@b.com", "c@b.com, _
            "fake subject", "fake body"

try this instead of early binding maybe?

Dim mobjMailer As Object

Set mobjMailer = CreateObject("CDONTS.NewMail")
mobjMailer.Send "a@b.com", "c@b.com", "fake subject", "fake body"

hope this helps!

if you just want to get rid of the error, add

On Error Resume Next

before Dim mObjMailer...

hope this helps!

I think it's because you are not defining a body format.

See this example

    Set oMail = CreateObject("CDONTS.NewMail")
   
    With oMail
       .From = "Support@JDLowry.com"
       .Subject = "Password Request"
       .To = Email
       .BodyFormat = 1
       .MailFormat = 1
       .Body = "Here is your password to access the JD Lowry Member Pages" & vbcrlf & Session("Password")
       .Send
    End With  
     
    Set oMail = Nothing

Set mobjSession = New CDONTS.Session
        mobjSession.LogonSMTP "SomeGuy", "sg@usa.com"
        Set mobjOutBox = mobjSession.Outbox
        Set mobjMsg = mobjOutBox.Messages.Add
   
        mobjMsg.Subject = "Subject"
        mobjMsg.Text = msMsg
mobjMsg.Recipients.Add "You", "a@b.com"
