CDONTS

I recently installed IIS on my computer via XP Pro and would like to use CDONTS to generate email from an ASP page. (I also installed SMTP)
When I execute the ASP code I get the following error:

Server object, ASP 0177 (0x800401F3)
Invalid class string

When it executes this row:
Set FailobjCDO = Server.CreateObject("CDONTS.NewMail")

Is there something I have to do to activate or configure CDONTS so it will function?

Okay.. I solved it myself and am giving the answer to help others that may suffer this:

It seems XP doesnt support CDONTS. Instead do it this way:
     Dim obCDO
     Set obCDO = Server.CreateObject("CDO.message")
        with obCDO
         .From = "info@Your.biz"
         .To = "whoever@isp.com"
         .Subject = "Download Info"
         .TextBody = "Dear Customer blah blah"
         .Send()
        end with
