I am trying to use CDONTS in VB6.  The code is running without error.  However the messages are not making out of the Queue folder.

SMTP is Configured, and running

Settings:
SMTP Properties --> Delivery --> Advanced Delivery
-- Fully Qualified Domain Name: (mycomputername) jonas
--Smart Host: (Exchange Server) [192.168.254.19]

Domains
--I have 1 remote domain -- kendallgroup.com and it is configured to send all mail to SMART HOST 192.168.254.19

Thanks in advance

By "queue folder" do you mean the Queue folder under Mailroot?  If so, then it doesn't sound like a VB problem.  It sounds like an SMTP problem.  Are there any Relay Restrictions or security restrictions that might be getting in the way?  On the Advanced Delivery tab, what happens if you click Check DNS?  Is your SMTP process connecting on the right port?

Thanks BlueDevilFan,

I actually figured this deal out, but your suggestion about checking the DNS was correct.  I placed a DNS server IP in the Fully Qualified domain name.  

Thanks for your time.
