my developers have creaed a vb program that wills end email based on conditions in our db. they are using poSendMail to send the email, but everytime we run the program the email just goes to this folder and is never emailed:
i have checked to be sure that the SMTP engine in IIS is running and it is. we have the smtphost set to localhost. we also have a cdo mailer that runs in our ASP code on the web site that runs through the localhost SMTP engine and those email messages go through fine with no trouble.
the server that we have this VB script on for now while we are building and testing it is our staging server which we also use for our email server. can the problem be that poSendMail looks to the email server SMTP engine rather than to the IIS SMTP engine? anybody got any ideas?
