that worked like a charm! thank you!
thank you!
Great.  

In order to make this easy for me on multiple pages I keep this code on a separate page as a function and add it as an in include file on any page I need to send mail.

function SendMail(from,to,subject,body)

Set objMessage = CreateObject("CDO.Message") 
objMessage.Subject = subject
objMessage.From = from
objMessage.To = to
' objMessage.TextBody = "This is some sample message text." 
objMessage.HTMLBody = body
objMessage.Send 

end function

Open in new window


Sometimes  I get really fancy and have a separate template file where I keep things like the header, footer, background etc that is also in a separate include file.
function template(body)
html="<table><tr><td>header</td></tr>"
html=html&"<table><tr><td>"&body&"</td></tr>"
html=html&"<table><tr><td>footer</td></tr>"
template=html
end function

function SendMail(from,to,subject,body)

Set objMessage = CreateObject("CDO.Message") 
objMessage.Subject = subject
objMessage.From = from
objMessage.To = to
' objMessage.TextBody = "This is some sample message text." 
objMessage.HTMLBody = template(body)
objMessage.Send 

end function
