I am trying to create a new outlook mail from ans ASP page.

I get the following error
ActiveX component can't create object: 'Outlook.Application'

My question is What is the DLL that corresponds to 'Outlook.Application' . Should this be on the WebServer or the user's machine. It worked fine when developing and testing locally on my machine, now that we moved to the Test Webserver it is failing.

I need to know the DLL associated with it to let our Web guys install it on the server.

Where can I find this DLL. Is it part of Win 2000, XP or what?

I had this exact same error and I fixed it by adjusting the Acitve-X settings in my browser.

Open Internet Explorer, go to Tools, Internet Options.  Click on the security page and make sure the "Internet" zone is selected at the top.  Then click on Custom Level at the bottom.  In the following window you will have several Active-X related settings.  I would FIRST document your current settings  -  this is important incase you make things worse.  Then change one at a time to see if this fixes your problem.

The Outlook problem has been resolved recently by running "Detect and Repair" from the Help menu in Outlook. This resolved the issue where Access 200 had been loaded after Outlook apparently messing up some registry info.
