ASP: CDONTS email gets stuck in pickup folder

I'm writing a program in ASP/HTML to send e-mails.  It goes something like this (except I'm using actual e-mail addresses):


set objSendMail = CreateObject("CDONTS.NewMail")

objSendMail.From = "abc@xyz.com"
objSendMail.To = "def@xyz.com"
objSendMail.Subject = "test"
objSendMail.Body = "hi, this is a test."



I don't get any errors or anything, but I never recieve the e-mail.  It just stays in the Pickup folder in mailroot, with the extension .EML.  My anonymous internet users (IUSR_SERVER and IWAM_SERVER) have operator rights to my Default SMTP Virtual Server. Why aren't the e-mails getting through, and what can I do to fix it?

Please help! and thanks in advance,
