send email using vbscript

metropia asked
Last Modified: 2012-05-12
hello I would like to send an email with an html link in the body using a visual basic script that gets executed by a scheduled task.

I am using the script attached on the code screen, but I keep getting an error that reads:

CDO.Message.1 error '80040220' The "SendUsing" configuration value is invalid.

Set objMessage = CreateObject("CDO.Message") 

objMessage.Subject = "Daily Status Report" 
objMessage.From = "generic@company.com" 
objMessage.To = "distributionlist@company.com"

objMessage.HTMLBody = "<p>Good Morning! This is an automated message sent every morning at 4:30 AM.</p>" 

objMessage.CreateMHTMLBody "http://company.com:8080/do/getCrystalReport?reportId=216&reportFormat=PDF"
