VBScript Problem

When I run the VBScript listed below from Windows Explorer (C:\Inetpub\GWNLtd\emailSendMail.html) it works fine and sends the test email.  If I run the script using the fully qualified web address (http://www.gwnlimited.com/emailSendMail.html) I get the following error message:

Line: 4:
Char: 1
Error: ActiveX component can't create object: 'MailServerX.AddressItem'
Code: 0
URL: http://www.gwnlimited.com/emailSendMail.html


Can anyone help?  VBScript listing below.

<SCRIPT LANGUAGE="VBScript">

Dim Sender, Recipients, CC, Body, Attachments, MailMessage
set Sender=CreateObject("MailServerX.AddressItem")
Sender.Name="Digby Matthew Walsh"
Sender.Address="Good@walsh.ac"

'To headers
set Recipients=CreateObject("MailServerX.AddressList")
Recipients.AddAddress "matt@walsh.ac","Scott"


'Create message body
set body=CreateObject("MailServerX.Lines")
body.add "Hello"
body.add "Goodbye"

set MailMessage=CreateObject("MailServerX.MailMessage")
MailMessage.From=Sender
MailMessage.ToRcpt=Recipients
MailMessage.Subject="Order Status Request"
MailMessage.body=body

'Create SendMail object
dim SendMail
set SendMail=CreateObject("MailServerX.SendMail")

'Assign the message
SendMail.MailMessage=MailMessage

'and send it
SendMail.PutToOutBox

MsgBox(" .............. Thanks! Message Sent!")

</SCRIPT>

It means you've got the MailServerX component registered locally, but not on your host.
This is also client side scripting... you want to move it over so its server side...

so you'll end up making a ASP page, with the same scripting

internet pages are subject to stricter security settings, that, obviously, do not allow you to create ActiveX. you could force your users to go and change all these security settings, but, come on - it is real hassle that nobody wants to do, so, in the end, your REAL options are 1) mailto: url, 2) mailing forms, and 3) server-side scripting.

not only that all client would have to install the directx package...
this is why things must be done server side through ASP

How do I move it over so it's Server Side scripting?

OliWarnerCommented:
learn some ASP for a start... ASP is just VB script so most of this should work... you also need to make sure your server supports ASP... IIS is the only one with directx capabilities...

www.asp101.com is a good place to learn the differences
the MailServerX website should also have some ASP examples on

Hi  mattyswalsh,

You just have to change your internet explorer security settings for this script to run. The code is in VBScript, that means it is going to be executed in client system. As this code is already working fine when executed locally that means that component is installed properly in our system.
For changing the security settings.
In IE go to Tools -> Iternet Options from menubar
Select Security tab
Under ActiveX Controls and Plug Ins, you check all the options as Enable.
This should solve your problem.

Enjoy!!!

Hello Findajay,

Thanks, but this means anyone running the script will have to reduce the activex security settings.  Do you know a way I can run the script on the server side?
