CDONTS - Server object, ASP 0177 (0x800401F3) error

Hi,

I'm trying to send an email using cdonts but I keep getting the following error can anyone shed some light on why i'm getting it?

Error Type:
Server object, ASP 0177 (0x800401F3)
Invalid class string
/new/account_remind.asp, line 78


Browser Type:
Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.1; SV1; .NET CLR 1.0.3705; .NET CLR 1.1.4322)


Here's the code i've been using:
Dim objMail
Set objMail = Server.CreateObject("CDONTS.NewMail")
objMail.To = "some@domain.com"
objMail.From = "some@domain.com"
objMail.Subject = "Information you requested"
objMail.Body = "Here is your password:"
objMail.Send 'Send off the email!

Thanks

Dim MyMail
Set MyMail = Server.CreateObject("CDO.Message")
MyMail.From = "justme@myaddress.com"
MyMail.To = "friend1@address1.com;friend2@address2.com"
MyMail.Cc = "friend3@address3.com;friend4@address4.com"
MyMail.Bcc = "friend5@address5.com;friend6@address6.com"
MyMail.Subject = "Sending Mail via CDOSYS for Windows 2000/XP"
MyMail.TextBody = "Sending email with CDOSYS Message " &_
"objects is easy! Try it!"
MyMail.AddAttachment "c:\path\smiley.gif"
MyMail.Fields("urn:schemas:httpmail:importance").Value = 2;
MyMail.Fields.Update()
MyMail.Send()
Set MyMail = Nothing
%>

Note the two main differences between CDONTS and CDOSYS.

Set MyMail = Server.CreateObject("CDO.Message")

MyMail.Fields("urn:schemas:httpmail:importance").Value = 2;

There are many other schemas that can be used with the CDOSYS object. Here are a few.

Out going SMTP server
MyMail.Fields("http://schemas.microsoft.com/cdo/conf iguration/smtpserver") = "your smtp server"

Whether you use a authentication on the server
MyMail.Fields("http://schemas.microsoft.com/cdo/conf iguration/smtpauthenticate") = 1

Account Name
MyMail.Fields("http://schemas.microsoft.com/cdo/conf iguration/sendusername") = "account name"

Account Password
MyMail.Fields("http://schemas.microsoft.com/cdo/conf iguration/sendpassword") = "account password"

Port
MyMail.Fields("http://schemas.microsoft.com/cdo/conf iguration/smtpserverport") = 25

Pickup Directory
MyMail.Fields("http://schemas.microsoft.com/cdo/conf iguration/sendusing") = 2
'USER MUST HAVE CHANGE RIGHTS TO THE PICKUP DIRECTORY

Timeout
'MyMail.Fields("http://schemas.microsoft.com/cdo/con figuration/smtpserverpickupdirectory") = "c:\Inetpub\mailroot\Pickup"
MyMail.Fields("http://schemas.microsoft.com/cdo/conf iguration/smtpconnectiontimeout") = 60

Now that you know all about the CDOSYS NewMail object, let's look at how to put this all together in a working user interface.

You can see an example of an CDOSYS email submission form on the next page.

Maybe you need CDOSYS instead....CDONTS isn;t installed on 2003 or XP

Are you running windows XP?  XP does not come with cdonts.dll (which the compiler needs in order to process the code).

download / registration instructions for the dll here:

Let me know if this helps!

What server are you using?

It may be better to use CDOSYS.  CDONTS is being deprecated.

Do this instead:
Dim objMail
Set objMail = Server.CreateObject("CDO.Message")  '<-- Object name has changed!!!
objMail.To = "some@domain.com"
objMail.From = "some@domain.com"
objMail.Subject = "Information you requested"
objMail.TextBody = "Here is your password:"  '<--  Property has changed to TextBody!!!
objMail.Send 'Send off the email!

ahh, there you go again, alorentz...giving the "right" answer!  Wacky you!

@mwidd101 -- I would recommend that you follow alorentz's advice on this one rather than using the old cdonts object that I've pointed you to.
