Greetings. This is a weird one.
Suddenly, this morning, after years of no problems with sending CDONTS mail, my IIS 5.0 Web Server with Windows 2 K server started popping up an error message (800a0046) "Access denied" with a reference to the line:
The anonymous Internet User account still has full permission to all the mail root folders as it always has, and I even added that account to the Aministrator's Group account in the Web Server's local machine. No change. We did add ASP.NET functionality to the IIS server, but that was a while ago and CDONTS has worked just fine up to this morning. We do have Secure Socket Layers (https) installed (this is a government Web server), but that's never been an issue on our Itranet.
I tried sending a CDO email message with scripting and I get the error (80070005) "Access is denied." HOWEVER...when I send an email on an .aspx page, calling the "System.Web.Mail" namespsace, the Web server sends the email.
Help! I gotta get CDONTS or CDO to work again!
