CDO problem

I was using the following script to send emails:.

Set objCDOSYSMail = Server.CreateObject("CDO.Message")
Set objCDOSYSCon = Server.CreateObject ("CDO.Configuration")

objCDOSYSCon.Fields("http://schemas.microsoft.com/cdo/configuration/smtpserver") = "mail.mywebsite.com"
objCDOSYSCon.Fields("http://schemas.microsoft.com/cdo/configuration/smtpserverport") = 25
objCDOSYSCon.Fields("http://schemas.microsoft.com/cdo/configuration/sendusing") = 2
objCDOSYSCon.Fields("http://schemas.microsoft.com/cdo/configuration/smtpconnectiontimeout") = 60
objCDOSYSCon.Fields("http://schemas.microsoft.com/cdo/configuration/smtpauthenticate") = 1
objCDOSYSCon.Fields("http://schemas.microsoft.com/cdo/configuration/sendusername") = "me@mywebsite.com"
objCDOSYSCon.Fields("http://schemas.microsoft.com/cdo/configuration/sendpassword") = "myPassword"
objCDOSYSCon.Fields.Update

Set objCDOSYSMail.Configuration = objCDOSYSCon
objCDOSYSMail.BodyPart.Charset = "UTF-8"
objCDOSYSMail.From = "me@mywebsite.com"
objCDOSYSMail.To = rs("email")
objCDOSYSMail.Subject = letterSubject
objCDOSYSMail.HTMLBody = letterbody
objCDOSYSMail.Send

Set objCDOSYSMail = Nothing
Set objCDOSYSCon = Nothing

The Script worked well for some months, but now it is not sending emails at all.
I tried to send email from the same account through webmail and it went OK.
Any Ideas?

If you are on a shared hosting service, they are probably blocking you or are are now requiring authentication.    If adding authentication does not work, then I would contact your hosting provider and ask about their TOS in regards to sending out mass email.

'Type of authentication, NONE, Basic (Base64 encoded), NTLM
objCDOSYSCon.Configuration.Fields.Item _
("http://schemas.microsoft.com/cdo/configuration/smtpauthenticate") = cdoBasic

'Your UserID on the SMTP server
objCDOSYSCon.Configuration.Fields.Item _
("http://schemas.microsoft.com/cdo/configuration/sendusername") = "youruserid"

'Your password on the SMTP server
objCDOSYSCon.Configuration.Fields.Item _
("http://schemas.microsoft.com/cdo/configuration/sendpassword") = "yourpassword"

Well I had other page with the same script
However this time the script gave me an error:

Server object error 'ASP 0177 : 80070008'

Server.CreateObject Failed

I've searched a little and did a restart of the server and all is now working well.
