Enabling SMTP on IIS 6.0 for Classic ASP
Posted on 2008-06-11
I have created a script in classic ASP to send data collected via a web form in an email. I now need to enable and configure SMTP on IIS 6.0 but I see two options to do this and I'm not sure which to choose.
a) First option is found in windows components->application server(details)->IIS(details)->SMTP service. On Microsofts website it says this is for ASP.NET so my concern is: will it also work for classic ASP?
b) Second option is windows components->email services. This option says it enables both POP3 and SMTP but I'm not sure if this will suffice for sending out emails with ASP.
So that it's clear, my goal is to be able to send outgoing emails carrying webform data; I'm not so concerned with receiving emails at this point but if it's just as easy to configure for both, I'll do it.
Thanks for the help!
