Sending HTML email with CDO and adding variable in body.

I'm trying to send a HTML email with variables. This is what I have, and getting the following error:


//Request Data from PDF
var FirstName        = Request.form("FirstName")
var LastName         = Request.form("LastName")
var Email            = Request.form("Email")
var Ext              = Request.form("Ext")
var OfficeNumber     = Request.form("OfficeNumber")
var FlatPanel        = Request.form("FlatPanel")
var SmallMonitor     = Request.form("SmallMonitor")
var SevMonitor       = Request.form("SevMonitor")
var MonitorStand     = Request.form("MonitorStand")
var SmallPrinter     = Request.form("SmallPrinter")
var LargePrinter     = Request.form("LargePrinter")
var FlatbedScanner   = Request.form("FlatbedScanner")
var SelfUnits        = Request.form("SelfUnits")
var Bookcases        = Request.form("Bookcases")
var MiscEquipment    = Request.form("MiscEquipment")
var Comments         = Request.form("Comments")

// Email Information

var objMail = Server.CreateObject("CDO.Message");

      objMail.From = "";
      objMail.To = Email;
        objMail.Subject = "Earthquake Survey Confirmation";
      objMail.HTMLBody = "<P><body>Thanks <%= FirstName %>for your submission</body></p>";
      objMail = null;

//////Error I'm getting/////////

Change the line to read this:

objMail.HTMLBody = "<P><body>Thanks "& FirstName &"for your submission</body></p>";
no if its javascript you have to do this

objMail.HTMLBody = "<P><body>Thanks " + FirstName + "for your submission</body></p>";

Thanks pkaleda,

Looks as if the stmp mail server is stripping away my html mail, so I guess I have to go the .textbody route. Is it possible to format text mail somehow? Or any other suggestions?

try this?

objMail.HTMLBody = "<body><p>Thanks " + FirstName + "for your submission</p></body>";
Also try this (before Send)

objMail.MimeFormatted = true
also add(before Send):

objMail.BodyFormat = 0
objMail.MailFormat = 0

Thanks for the Feedback...

Everything worked like a charm, except when I added...

also add(before Send):

objMail.BodyFormat = 0
objMail.MailFormat = 0

It stated object wasn't supported...

BodyFormat and MailFormat are properties of CDONTS (not CDO)

>>Everything worked like a charm
