Sending e-mail with CDOSYS

I found this code on the page

http://www.w3schools.com/asp/asp_send_email.asp


Sending an HTML e-mail that sends a webpage from a website:

<%
Set myMail=CreateObject("CDO.Message")
myMail.Subject="Sending email with CDO"
myMail.From="mymail@mydomain.com"
myMail.To="someone@somedomain.com"
myMail.CreateMHTMLBody "http://www.w3schools.com/asp/"
myMail.Send
set myMail=nothing
%>

I cannot see how this can send as it does not have a button and I do not understand the line myMail.CreateMHTMLBody "http://www.w3schools.com/asp/"

Can anyone explain how this functions please.

Thanks

John

The code is server-side code that will execute on the server-side as soon as the page it is on is loaded so it doesn't need a button.

The CreateMHTMLBody line will just take the specified webpage and convert into a format that can be sent as an email body.

I was hoping to have a webpage where some entries can be made.

This would seem not to do this?
