What is JMail.Message in my .asp pages?

Hi,
I'm taking over the running of a web site built in ASP (I come from a world of Apache, Perl, Linux and Qmail)
I have access to the old server (running IIS 5) as well of course to the new server (IIS 6).

The site seems to be working well on the new server (not live yet) but there is an area of the site that sends Mail out from one of the Forms.  When I look at the  .ASP page I see this line:

Set MyMail = Server.CreateObject("JMail.Message")

So, my question is pretty basic I think. What is JMail.Message? Is this a component of IIS? ASP?
Please tell me (or direct me) to what I need to know to get this up and running. Do I have to install it?
Is it installed by default but I have to active it? Etc...

Thanks very much,
Mike

JMail is a componet for sending mail, like CDO or Persits ASPEMail.  Yes, you need to install it on new computer, or change code to use CDO.

CDO comes with IIS, and no install needed.  Just some configuring in IIS Manager.

Thanks Golfdoctor.

I'm thinking I should probably just stick with JMail since that's what the original developer used in these pages.
I found the Dimac folder in Program Files of the old server. Question: Do you know if just moving these files across to the new server would work? It looks like it's basically just a dll. My guess is that it won't since Windows probably performs some registery magic in the background during install.
I can also just buy it, it's not expensive but I see the new version is 4.5 and the version the old server has is 4.

You should just be able to register the DLL.  Check Dimac for install instructions.  Or, help file in folder.
