Hello

I moved my WEB site to IIS6, 2003 server only to find that CDONTS is no longer supported.

I have several asp pages that where using Mysql statements to populate the SQL database then send the results via email using CDONTS.

Now that I have to USE the CDO object can anyone tell me what the syntax should be? HELP

This is a portion of the ASP page that was using mySQL and CDONTS.

'%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%

Thanks for the posts

For the moment I like the idea of registering the cdonts.dll
Unfortunately after registering the DLL I now get an “800a0046|Permission_denied” is the IIS log.
Any ideas?

>>For the moment I like the idea of registering the cdonts.dll

Thats not a good idea. Why would you use somethign that doesn't really support ? I am not against it, but is there a isue using CDO ?
instead of CDONTS ?

Thanks,

No, the only issue at the moment is that  IIS6 and CDO was an unexpected delay. I couldnt hold off on some server moves.
But I do appreciate the input. Converting to CDO will occur just not today.

Thanks
