Hi Experts,

I have the following script. I want to change the "jmail.Send("mailhost.chep.com")" to a local mail server that runs off my laptop for testing. How can I configure this?

Thanks

How about you just change the recipient to some test account at gmail or yahoo?

The issue is this line: jmail.Send("mailhost.chep.com")

What is the host if i am using my laptop as the server. I am only testing locally. I want to generate the email and send it to outlook.

Thanks

Assuming you have a mail server listening on your local computer that will accept mail for vcsmc.com, yes.
