CDO.Message

bodyTxt = "<span>You have just received an email from security.<br> <a href='http://registration/se/Rest.asp?var=" & request.form("id") & "&email=" & email & "'>Please click here.</a></span>"

emailHere = "iola@eecom.com"
Set objSendMail = CreateObject("CDO.Message")
objSendMail.Subject = "Your Certificate"
objSendMail.MailFormat = 0
objSendMail.BodyFormat = 0
objSendMail.From = "iola"
objSendMail.To = emailHere
objSendMail.TextBody = bodyTxt
objSendMail.send

When the email is sent, the recepient receives the contents of bodyTxt with the HTML tags exactly as you see it above.  Also, the link "Please click here" is not active.

Any solutions.

Try

bodyTxt = "<span>You have just received an email from security.<br> <a href='http://registration/se/Rest.asp?var=" & request.form("id") & "&email=" & email & "'>Please click here.</a></span>"

emailHere = "iola@eecom.com"
Set objSendMail = Server.CreateObject("CDONTS.NEWMAIL")
objSendMail.Subject = "Your Certificate"
objSendMail.MailFormat = 0
objSendMail.BodyFormat = 0
objSendMail.From = "iola"
objSendMail.To = emailHere
objSendMail.TextBody = bodyTxt
objSendMail.send

Cheers!!

if this is really CDO.Message, then you need to change

objSendMail.TextBody to objSendMail.HTMLBody

You dont need the mailformat or body format calls.  Get rid of them.

setting the .TextBody of CDOSYS will always send the email as text.

From Microsoft:

Dim iMsg
Set iMsg = CreateObject("CDO.Message")

With iMsg
  .To         = "someone@microsoft.com"
  .Newsgroups = "comp.microsoft.newsgroup1"
  .Subject    = "Agenda for staff meeting"
  .HTMLBody   = "<html><body><p>Please plan to present your status for the following projects...</p></body></html>"
End With

If you wanna use CDOSYS,
use..
bodyTxt = "<span>You have just received an email from security.<br> <a href='http://registration/se/Rest.asp?var=" & request.form("id") & "&email=" & email & "'>Please click here.</a></span>"

Set objSendMail = CreateObject("CDO.Message")

With objSendMail
 .To         = "someone@microsoft.com"
 .Newsgroups = "comp.microsoft.newsgroup1"
 .Subject    = "Agenda for staff meeting"
 .HTMLBody   = bodyTxt
End With


Cheers!!

Correction on sending the mail using the NEWMAIL Object.. Here's the correct code.

bodyTxt = "<span>You have just received an email from security.<br> <a href='http://registration/se/Rest.asp?var=" & request.form("id") & "&email=" & email & "'>Please click here.</a></span>"

emailHere = "iola@eecom.com"
Set objSendMail = Server.CreateObject("CDONTS.NEWMAIL")
objSendMail.Subject = "Your Certificate"
objSendMail.MailFormat = 0
objSendMail.BodyFormat = 0
objSendMail.From = "iola"
objSendMail.To = emailHere
objSendMail.Body = bodyTxt
objSendMail.send

Cheers!!

Perhaps your HTML isn't properly formatted.  Change this:

bodyTxt = "<span>You have just received an email from security.<br> <a href='http://registration/se/Rest.asp?var=" & request.form("id") & "&email=" & email & "'>Please click here.</a></span>"

To This:
bodyTxt = "<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC ""-//IETF//DTD HTML//EN"">" & vbCrLf
bodyTxt = bodyTxt & "<html>"
bodyTxt = bodyTxt & "<head>"
bodyTxt = bodyTxt & "<meta http-equiv=""Content-Type"""
bodyTxt = bodyTxt & ""content=""text/html; charset=iso-8859-1"">""
bodyTxt = bodyTxt & "<title>Sample NewMail</title>"
bodyTxt = bodyTxt & "</head>"
bodyTxt = bodyTxt & "<body>"
bodyTxt = bodyTxt & "<span>You have just received an email from security.<br> <a href='http://registration/se/Rest.asp?var=" & request.form("id") & "&email=" & email & "'>Please click here.</a></span>"
bodyTxt = bodyTxt & "</body></html>"
