ASP CDO Error with ObjSendMail.CreateMHTMLBody CDO.Message.1 error '80070005'

I am sending an email using CDO via my ASP page. I get this error:

CDO.Message.1 error '80070005'

Access is denied.

/eureka/mailinfo.asp, line 52

Line 52 relates to the ObjSendMail.CreateMHTMLBody line of the code.

- ObjSendMail.CreateMHTMLBody ""

I have navigated seperately to the page and it works fine.

If I replace Line 52 with

- ObjSendMail.CreateMHTMLBody ""
- ObjSendMail.CreateMHTMLBody ""

Both works fine.

So there must be an issue with info.asp?id=123... but what causes the system to have problem? JavaScripts? anyone?

Yes, Security permission can be given to a particular file in a directory.

Only disadvantage is during later point of time, if you alter the security permissions for the folder, then security permissions for a file will be overwritten.
Applying security permissions for a folder is easier than altering the permission for each and every file.

As a standard means of doing, no one does this unless it is mandatory to do it.


You said, if you replace with those two lines, it works fine. But my guess would be try doing this...
Set objConfig = Server.CreateObject("CDO.Configuration")
Set Confi = objConfig.Fields
Confi("") = 1
Confi("") = "C:\inetpub\mailroot\pickup"
Set ObjSendMail.Configuration = objConfig
Hope this should work.

In case this fails, try to check for ASP for error free.

I found out why. The directory of
is protected and not accessible. The solution was to move the file info.asp to another directory that is not protected.

I made a mistake in the question.
ObjSendMail.CreateMHTMLBody "" 
Should Not work as well, as it is also in the same directory.

I will award the points later if there's no alternative solution that keeps the file in the same directory as well as allowing permission securely. Can I give permission for just a single file?
