have you got an SMTP service installed on your local install?

Are you using CDONTS ?

You need to change this to the SMTP address of your mailserver.  Locally you can setup an SMTP server in IIS OR you can point it directly to your ISP's Mailserver.  (but you may be required to change this when you put it into a production environment)

Is your remote mailserver allowing you to relay through it? Generally it would be set to prevent this type of connection for fear of being used as an open relay.

I don't believe this is an issue with the code as it works on the remote machine just not locally.
