What OS is the server?  You should be able to use either CDONTS or CDO objects to do this but which you use will depend somewhat on which OS you're running :) (This presumes win32 of some variety)

Hi there,

Try to use the code down here.

SET MyMail=Server.Createobject("CDONTS.Newmail")  
MyMail.Subject="Your Subject"  
MyMail.Body="Your Message Body"  
Set MyMail=Nothing

If you are using Windows Server 2003

Dim MyMail
set MyMail.CreateObject("CDO.Message")
MyMail.From = ""
MyMail.Subject = "CDOSYS Mail Message"
MyMail.To = ""
MyMail.TextBody = "Hello World"
set MyMail = nothing

Make sure to safe the file as an ASP file....
