I am running the script below, to send an email using CDO, but keep getting a compilation error.

Can anybody help, Thanks

Set objEmail = CreateObject("CDO.Message")    
objEmail.Configuration.Fields.Item( & _     "http://schemas.microsoft.com/cdo/configuration/sendusing") = 2    
objEmail.Configuration.Fields.Item( & _     "http://schemas.microsoft.com/cdo/configuration/smtpserver") = &_ "smtp.servername"    
objEmail.Configuration.Fields.Item( & _     "http://schemas.microsoft.com/cdo/configuration/smtpserverport") = 25    
objEmail.Configuration.Fields.Update    
objEmail.From = "example.com"    
objEmail.To = "example1.com"    
objEmail.Subject = "Test Message"    
objEmail.Textbody = "This is a test message."    
objEmail.Send    
Set objEmail = nothing

It is because you are using the &_ at the start.  

Set objEmail = CreateObject("CDO.Message")
objEmail.Configuration.Fields.Item("http://schemas.microsoft.com/cdo/configuration/sendusing") = 2
objEmail.Configuration.Fields.Item("http://schemas.microsoft.com/cdo/configuration/smtpserver") = "smtp.servername"
objEmail.Configuration.Fields.Item("http://schemas.microsoft.com/cdo/configuration/smtpserverport") = 25
objEmail.Configuration.Fields.Update
objEmail.From = "example.com"
objEmail.To = "example1.com"
objEmail.Subject = "Test Message"
objEmail.Textbody = "This is a test message."
objEmail.Send
Set objEmail = Nothing

That's a syntax error, do you think that's what he meant?

I think so.  It just won't allow you to put the ampersand underscore before the text string

Yes. I thought he had just compressed it on to one line for us to see the code more easily, so I corrected it before testing. Doh!
