Can't send mail with Form

I have recently switched webhosting companies and now have to edit my ASP script pages.

Everything is working except my Send mail. I think I may have to pass authentication (my old server didn't require authentication) but I'm not sure if I have it written correctly.

I'm getting this error on the site..
error '8004020f'
/inquiries.asp, line 139

I added the authentication part to the script and now get this error.
Microsoft VBScript runtime error '800a01a8'
Object required: ''
/inquiries.asp, line 118

I will mark 118 and 139 below.

Here is a piece of the code.

<%
      
      Dim oMessage, objConfig, Flds, eBody
      Dim str, temp
        Set str = New RegExp
        str.Global = True
        str.IgnoreCase = True
      
      str.Pattern = "^[\w-\.]{1,}\@([\da-zA-Z-]{1,}\.){1,}[\da-zA-Z-]{2,3}$"
    temp = str.Test(Trim(request.form("eMail")))
      
      
      If temp = true Then
            Set oMessage = Server.CreateObject("CDO.Message")
            
            Set objConfig = createobject("CDO.Configuration")
            Set Flds = objConfig.Fields
            
            eBody = "http://schemas.microsoft.com/cdo/configuration/"
            With Flds
                  .Item(eBody & "sendusing") = 2
                  .Item(eBody & "smtpserver") = "smtp.<CompanyName>.com"

----THIS IS LINE 118----  'Type of authentication, NONE, Basic (Base64 encoded), NTLM
objMessage.Configuration.Fields.Item _

'Your password on the SMTP server
objMessage.Configuration.Fields.Item _

'Server port (typically 25)

'Connection Timeout in seconds (the maximum time CDO will try to establish a connection to the SMTP server)
objMessage.Configuration.Fields.Item _

.Update
            End With
            Set oMessage.Configuration = objConfig
      
            eBody = ""
            eBody = eBody & "Subject: " & request.form("Subject") & chr(10)
            eBody = eBody & "Company: " & request.form("Company") & chr(10)

this
objMessage.Configuration.Fields.Item _
("http://schemas.microsoft.com/cdo/configuration/smtpauthenticate") = cdoBasic

should be

objMessage.Configuration.Fields.Item _
("http://schemas.microsoft.com/cdo/configuration/smtpauthenticate") = 1
0

I made the change same error.

Microsoft VBScript runtime error '800a01a8'
Object required: ''
/inquiries.asp, line 118

Could it be that I'm using
objMessage.Configuration.Fields.Item _
("http://schemas.microsoft.com/cdo/configuration/smtpauthenticate") = 1

instead of using
.Item(eBody & "smtpauthenticate") = 1

??
Thanks

here is what I use and it works, maybe you can see your error...

Set objCDOSYS = Server.CreateObject("CDO.Message")
Set objCDOConf = Server.CreateObject ("CDO.Configuration")

uncomment the next section if remote SMTP
'With objCDOConf
'      .Fields("http://schemas.microsoft.com/cdo/configuration/sendusing") = 2
'      .Fields("http://schemas.microsoft.com/cdo/configuration/smtpserver") = "smtp.mydomain.com" 'smtp IP or domain
'      .Fields("http://schemas.microsoft.com/cdo/configuration/sendusername") = "smtp_username" 'smtp username
'      .Fields("http://schemas.microsoft.com/cdo/configuration/sendpassword") = "smtp_password" 'smtp password
'      .Fields("http://schemas.microsoft.com/cdo/configuration/smtpauthenticate") = 1 'Set to 1 if you need to authenticate on the SMTP server
'      .Fields.Update
'End With
'Set objCDOSYS.Configuration = objCDOConf
With objCDOSYS    
      .From = "administrator@site.com"
      .To = strEmail & "@site.com"
      .Subject = "Subject"
                strMessage = "<p>HTML Message</p>"
      .HTMLBody = strMessage
      .Send
End with
Set objCDOSYS = Nothing
Set objCDOConf = Nothing

OK So I made few modifications.

CDO.Message.1 error '80040213'

do you need to spedify the port since its a default port?

if you use ssl wont it try using the ssl port ?

also I would try removing the timeout...

Thanks for your help, after working out the little bugs it turns out the Hosting company was blocking the smtp and provided me with a secureSmtp server instead. It would have been nice to have the hosting company tell me earlier but better late then never I suppose.
