Hello Experts
I used to have smtp server on the same host earlier but now we are using google aps to host our emails.
Now, all my old vbscripts to send emails are not working ...
Please can someone advise how can I make this script work?
Thanks

Set objEmail = CreateObject("CDO.Message")
objEmail.Configuration.Fields.Item("http://schemas.microsoft.com/cdo/configuration/sendusing") = 2
objEmail.Configuration.Fields.Item("http://schemas.microsoft.com/cdo/configuration/smtpserver") = "ghs.google.com"
objEmail.Configuration.Fields.Item("http://schemas.microsoft.com/cdo/configuration/smtpserverport") = 25
objEmail.Configuration.Fields.Update

objEmail.To = "admin@test.com"
objEmail.From = "admin@test.com"
objEmail.AddAttachment OutputDir & FileName & ".csv"
objEmail.Subject = "Daily Web Orders Report"
EmailBody = "Reports Test" & vbCrLf & vbCrLf
objEmail.TextBody = EmailBody
objEmail.Send
Set objEmail = Nothing

This should work
Sub SendEmailGMail(sSubject, sEmailText, sGmailEmailAddress, sGmailPassword, sTo)
    Set oEmail = CreateObject("CDO.Message")
    oEmail.From = sGmailEmailAddress
    oEmail.To = sTo

    oEmail.Subject = sSubject
    oEmail.HTMLbody = sEmailText

    sSchema = "http://schemas.microsoft.com/cdo/configuration/"
    oEmail.Configuration.Fields.Item(sSchema & "sendusing") = 2
    oEmail.Configuration.Fields.Item(sSchema & "smtpserver") = "smtp.gmail.com"
    oEmail.Configuration.Fields.Item(sSchema & "smtpserverport") = 465
    oEmail.Configuration.Fields.Item(sSchema & "smtpauthenticate") = 1
    oEmail.Configuration.Fields.Item(sSchema & "sendusername") = sGmailEmailAddress
    oEmail.Configuration.Fields.Item(sSchema & "sendpassword") = sGmailPassword
    oEmail.Configuration.Fields.Item(sSchema & "smtpusessl") = 1
    oEmail.Configuration.Fields.Item(sSchema & "smtpconnectiontimeout") = 60
    oEmail.Configuration.Fields.Update
    oEmail.Send

    Set oEmail = Nothing
End Sub

Just to confirm, you're using it like this:

Call SendEmailGMail("Test", "test", "johndoe@gmail.com", "mypassword", "janedoe@gmail.com")
