Has anyone done any basic ASP mail scripts that worked on a Network Solutions hosted account?
I tried one with CDonts, but don't think I have the correct server info. Does anyone know what should go in this parameter for a Network Solutions server?

Haven't worked with a Network Solutions hosted account, but many servers use CDOMessage instead of CDONTS.

for instance:
Set objCDOMessage = Server.CreateObject("CDO.Message")
' creates the object
objCDOMessage.From = request.form("email")  ' the address listed as "From"
objCDOMessage.To =  "somebody@somewhere.com" ' the address listed as "To"
' you could include bcc and cc recipients as well
objCDOMessage.Subject = "Some topic" ' specify the subject header
objCDOMessage.TextBody = request.form("datafield1") & vbcrlf &_
 request.form("datafield2") & vbcrlf &_
 request.form("datafield3")
      'now send the message
objCDOMessage.Send
'wrap things up
Set objCDOMessage = Nothing %>

Your code worked sending an email from their server, so that's all I needed.
Thanks
