all properties like from , to , cc , bcc must have VALID EMAIL ADDRESSES . Only then the Cdonts will work. Otherwise , even if it doesnt show you any error, it still wont work

Zombeen-

i have tried numerous emails- one from the same domain- ex "email@test.com"; one from yahoo "email@yahoo.com"

where 'email' is my actual email address- just not posted here

i rewrote the sub as
set objMail = createobject("CDONTS.Mail")
objMail.Send "from@address.com", "to@address.com", "subj line", "body txt", 0
set objMail = Nothing

still not working

also- have a txt write sub execute that is in the same sub as cdonts.newmail sub is

i do not receive any error msg- the entire from is an if.else statement & writes an input in teh else on the webpage- it displays so i believe its an error free sub...need serverside support- which i cant get- but can i check smtp setup correctly through remote connection?

thanks,
duncan

i know this was a rambling post- but thanks for your help

turns out it was a safehost(?) issue- no relay allowed...told me to specify the server "webserver5" in the code

solution:

Set objmyMail = Server("webserver5").CreateObject("CDONTS.NewMail")


is good?

thanks,
duncan
