I am using this following code to send email via classic asp.

It all works fine if I use the correct mailFrom... but In case I change the fromEmail, it doesn;t work. I need to send invites in my application and the from email should be the agents email address and not my site's email address. Is there any way I can change it>

		Sub sendEmail(mailFrom, mailTo, mailSubject, mailMessage, mailServer, mailUsername, mailPassword)
			Set MyMail = CreateObject("cdo.message")
			MyMail.From = mailFrom
			MyMail.To = mailTo
			MyMail.Subject = mailSubject
			MyMail.HTMLBody = mailMessage
			MyMail.Configuration.Fields.Item("http://schemas.microsoft.com/cdo/configuration/sendusing") = 2
			MyMail.Configuration.Fields.Item("http://schemas.microsoft.com/cdo/configuration/smtpserver") = mailServer
			MyMail.Configuration.Fields.Item("http://schemas.microsoft.com/cdo/configuration/sendusername") = mailUsername
			MyMail.Configuration.Fields.Item("http://schemas.microsoft.com/cdo/configuration/sendpassword") = mailPassword
			MyMail.Configuration.Fields.Item("http://schemas.microsoft.com/cdo/configuration/smtpauthenticate") = 1
			MyMail.Configuration.Fields.Item("http://schemas.microsoft.com/cdo/configuration/smtpserverport") = 25
			MyMail.Configuration.Fields.Update
			MyMail.Send
			Set MyMail = nothing
		End Sub

the problem is most possible with mail server/smtp configuration that set up so check mailFrom is originated on the site , admin should change it to be able to orginate elsewhere

I use "Google Apps" as my Hosting provider has a screwed up mail server setup that everything gets marked as spam.

So.
With Google Apps, I have to assign the account that is used in my Mail Forms, as "Administrator". If it is a basic account, it will not work.

I am unsure what mail hosting you are using, but if you have a way of making the accounts as "Administrator" then give it a shot, and try the mail again.

Good Luck

Many web hosts will not allow you to send from an email address that does not exist on your account.  That's considered to be sending spam.
