Multiple ways to do this...

Connect via SMTP

Load/configure a Notes client, Outlook, and the MS Outlook/Notes connector, then use MAPI

Load Outlook, iNotes for Outllok access, then use MAPI

Load/configure the Notes client then use the Notes COM interface

I guess I wasn't clear about what I want to do.  and I don't know anything about Lotus Notes so I need specifics on that if you have an idea.  I have a web application running with IIS 5 and I do not want to open up the SMTP web service for that IIS, but I want to send an email message.  In our shop we have Lotus Notes for email, so I need to know how under asp in my web page I can configure to send email information to the Lotus Notes server that is inside our firewall so that it will do what it needs to do to send out the email either internal or external.  Someone suggested that there is an asp "Com" object that can be used, but I'm not familiar with it or it's use, so I was looking for info on that.  Thanks, Bostonrose

I did not mean to say that you need to open up the SMTP service on IIS. I meant, you can make use of the SMTP ***access*** features which allow you to use an external SMTP service.  Domino will be the SMTP service, and yo just use it to send SMTP mail (which can ultimately go to either the nternetor internal Notes users)

Any of the other optiosn will require the installation of a Notes client, with its own Notes ID and password.  Then, you can use either one of the two MAPI-to-Notes options (and send via the MAPI interface), or you can use teh DOmino COM objects.

Here's some code to use DOmino COM objects:

Dim s as New NotesSession
s.Initialize( "notes password" )
Dim dbDir as notesDbDirectory
Set dbDir = s.getDbDirectory("")
Dim mail as notesDatabase
Set mail = dbDir.OpenMailDatabase
If Not mail.IsOpen Then
  mail.Open("","")
End If
If Not mail.IsOpen Then
  'error handling
  'Exit Sub
End If
Dim message as notesDocument
Set message = mail.createDocument
message.replaceItemValue "Form" , "Memo"
message.replaceItemValue "SendTo" , "some message recipient - internal - or user@internet.com"
message.replaceItemValue "Subject" , "Message summary/heading"
message.replaceItemValue "Body" , "Plain text main message - using rich text is more complicated"
message.Send False 'False means do not use an esoteric formatting option, which would not work here
