i have a website which i need the user to be able to send an email to another person,the scenario is like this,i am developing web-based distributed database management system,and so i have a local database and a remote one,so the managers at the Headquarters(Local db) should be able to access the remote db,that is done,but now,i want the managers to be able to send some email to the employees at the branch(remote db). i dont really know how to carry this out.Im thinking that when the manager writes a message and clicks a send email button then the message is sent to that email.....can u help!!

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....
