I have an HTML form which solicits data and then passes it to an ASP page which formats and e-mails data out.  It works GREAT with internal addresses within our company.  As soon as I try to send to an external address, or mobile device, the whole thing crashes and I get:

error '8004020f'
/form/CMS/lean/hitCount/send_notice.asp, line 46

Line 46 is my mail.Send line

Why can't I send out??

Please see code below:

    <%
        when = Request.Form("when")
        what = Request.Form("S_event")
        where = Request.Form("line_name")
        why = Request.Form("why")
        message="At " &when & " an " &what & " for the " &where & " line due to " &why
       
       
        set cdoConfig = CreateObject("CDO.Configuration")
        with cdoConfig.Fields
            .Item ("http://schemas.microsoft.com/cdo/configuration/sendusing")=2
            .Item ("http://schemas.microsoft.com/cdo/configuration/smtpserver")="xxx.yyy.com"
            .Item ("http://schemas.microsoft.com/cdo/configuration/smtpserverport")=25
            .Update
        end with
       
        set myMail=CreateObject("CDO.Message")
        with myMail
            set .Configuration = cdoConfig
            .From="fake_address@mycompany.com"
            .Subject="Safety Notification"
            .To="phone_number@carrier.net"
            .TextBody=message
            .Send  
        end with
       
        set myMail = nothing
    %>

you have use SMTP authentication for CDO mail fire.
you have to set below values

.Item (http://schemas.microsoft.com/cdo/configuration/smtpauthenticate) = 1
.Item (http://schemas.microsoft.com/cdo/configuration/sendusername) = HostUsrname
.Item (http://schemas.microsoft.com/cdo/configuration/sendpassword) = HostPassword

I added all that, (used my username and password for login to Exchange)
Get same error as before.

Is it possible this server can't send out and we use another server for that??
