Bulk Email Auto Send method
Posted on 2007-10-14
We have a new customer, and one of their requirements is when we despatch an order, we send an email confirmation, customised to their requirements (order number, tracking link etc) built around some static text
I have developed something (albeit in VB6) and it works sending an email to me, fine. The problem is that the customer has not received it. I suspect this may be because of a spam trap somewhere.
The currently system is a scheduled task using CDO, and also spoofs their email address. The main code is as follows:
.From = "firstname.lastname@example.org"
'.To = "email@example.com"
.To = objRS("EMAIL")
.Cc = "firstname.lastname@example.org"
.Body = strEmail
.Subject = "Company Order Despatched"
.Importance = 1
What i need to do, is either make this spam proof, or find an alternative. Is there a better method, or even a dedicated program that will do what i need it to?
Many thanks for your help
