I have used CDO.Message many times with providers (1 and 1, ReadyHosting), but have never had this experience.

I have a "tell a friend" script I am using, but for some reason, I don't get an error but the e-mail is not sent.

Code attached.
Set Mail = Server.CreateObject("CDO.Message")
		Set objConfig = Server.CreateObject("CDO.Configuration") 
		
		'Configuration:
		objConfig.Fields.Item("http://schemas.microsoft.com/cdo/configuration/sendusing") = 2
		objConfig.Fields("http://schemas.microsoft.com/cdo/configuration/smtpserver")="smtpserver -- verified"
		objConfig.Fields("http://schemas.microsoft.com/cdo/configuration/smtpserverport")=25 
		objConfig.Fields("http://schemas.microsoft.com/cdo/configuration/smtpauthenticate")=1 
		objConfig.Fields("http://schemas.microsoft.com/cdo/configuration/sendusername") = "user@domain"
		objConfig.Fields("http://schemas.microsoft.com/cdo/configuration/sendpassword") = "password"
		objConfig.Fields("http://schemas.microsoft.com/cdo/configuration/smtpconnectiontimeout") = 60
		'Update configuration 
		objConfig.Fields.Update 
		Set Mail.Configuration = objConfig
 
		Mail.From = "valid and verified e-mail address"
		Mail.To = strEmail
		Mail.Subject = strSubject
		strBody = "A message from: " & strSenderEmail & "<br><br>I am sending this to you because I believe this is a website you should check out!<br><br>"
		Mail.HTMLBody = strBody
		On Error Resume Next
		Mail.Send
		If Err.Number <> 0 Then
			Response.Write "An error encountered: " & Err.Description & "<br>"
		Else %>
			&nbsp;&nbsp;Thank you for your help in getting our message out!<br><br>&nbsp;&nbsp;Click Back on your browser or <a href="tell_a_friend.asp">click here to send another e-mail.</a>
		<% End If

If it seems to be successfully delivering to an SMTP server we will need to check the SMTP logs to determine what happened to the message.

Network Solutions CDOSYS does not require authentication to send e-mail, therefore this question is resolved.
Set myEmail = Server.CreateObject("CDO.Message")
		schemasURL = "http://schemas.microsoft.com/cdo/configuration/"
		With myEmail.Configuration.Fields
		.Item(schemasURL & "sendusing") = 2
		.Item(schemasURL & "smtpserver") = "localhost"
		.Item(schemasURL & "smtpconnectiontimeout") = 10
		.Item(schemasURL & "smtpserverport") = 25
		.Item (schemasURL & "smtpusessl") = False
		.Item (schemasURL & "smtpconnectiontimeout") = 60
		.Update
		End With
		
		myEmail.From = "email@domain.com"
		myEmail.To = strEmail
		myEmail.BCC = "email@domain.com"
		myEmail.Subject = strSubject
		strBody = "A message from: " & strSenderEmail & "<br><br>I am sending this to you because I believe this is a website you should check out!<br><br>"
		strBody = strBody & "I just found <br><br>website domain.com"
		myEmail.HTMLBody = strBody
		On Error Resume Next
		myEmail.Send
		If Err.Number <> 0 Then
			Response.Write "An error encountered: " & Err.Description & "<br>"
		Else %>
			&nbsp;&nbsp;Thank you for your help in getting our message out!<br><br>&nbsp;&nbsp;Click Back on your browser or <a href="tell_a_friend.asp">click here to send another e-mail.</a>
		<% End If
		Set myEmail = Nothing
