I am embedding an object that is a web page to my email "www.somepage.com.foo.asp" that is all good and working quite well
the problem comes in when Exchange is is caching the page "www.somepage.com.foo.asp" when i change foo.asp the old page still gets sent. how do i refresh the object
<%

    cdoURL = "http://schemas.microsoft.com/cdo/configuration/"

    FromAddress = "address"
    ToAddress = "myaddress"
    ToName = "Brandon"
    Subject = "Subject"
    MHTMLBody = "www.somepage.com.foo.asp"

    Set cdoM = CreateObject("CDO.Message")
    Set cdoC = CreateObject("CDO.Configuration")
    Set cdoF = cdoC.Fields

    With cdoM
        Set .Configuration = cdoC

        .CreateMHTMLBody MHTMLBody
        .From = FromAddress
        .To = ToAddress
        .Subject = Subject
        .TextBody = textbody

    End With
    cdoM.send

    Set cdoM = Nothing
    Set cdoS = Nothing
    Set cdoF = Nothing
%>

I don't know that you can without deleting the message and resending it. I suspect that the message is not holding the url value, but rather, the content of the page when the message is sent.

this is a resend sorry, i should be clear.
I deliver the message via the page
then i change the site and resend the messsage and the original page still comes up, not the page that reflects the change it seems as if the page is cached on the server side

I believe this issue has something to do with the internal caching of iis 6

silly stuff
i had also put in my code
Response.Buffer = True
Response.ExpiresAbsolute = Now() - 1
Response.AddHeader "Cache-Control", "must-revalidate"
Response.AddHeader "Cache-Control", "no-cache"
but that didnt seem to do it, was overriden by is i guess

You don't need to add any of that response stuff.

If you add a time stamp to the querystring, Exchange would think you are requesting a new page.

Change this :

   MHTMLBody = "www.somepage.com.foo.asp"

To this :

   MHTMLBody = "www.somepage.com.foo.asp?ts=" & now()
