CDONTS (Chillimail) Error

Can anyone help me, up until a few days ago I was able to send email through an asp page using CDONTS on our webserver which is a RAQ4 running the latest version of chilisoft.

Since then when I try using CDONTS on the server I get the error message:

CDONTS.NewMail.1 error '80020009'

Unable to connect to server

Iam using the same code as before:

<% Set objNewMail = Server.CreateObject("CDONTS.NewMail")
objNewMail.From = "andy@gforces.co.uk"
objNewMail.To = "andy@gforces.co.uk"
objNewMail.Body = "hello"
objNewMail.Host = "localhost"
objNewMail.Send %>

The mail server is running ok, and I have used telnet on port 25 and get no errors.

Does anyone know how I can over come this problem, I have restarted the ASP server and also turned chilimail off and on again, with no change.

Is there anything in your error log?

Check the casp.cfng file in the asp-server-#### directory under the chilisoft installation directory for the line

If you have shell access to the server, you can always
try find / -name "casp.cfng" -print to locate this.

This should at least contain some type of error.

You may also want to check your sendmail logs.
/var/log/maillog or where syslog logs to:
/etc/syslog.conf: mail.*                 /var/log/maillog
