Converting from CDONTS to CDOSYS

I have been asked to look at a piece of code which no longer works on a website.  The code generates an email and sends it.  I think the problem is that the site is now on IIS7 which doesnt support CDONTS but I have no idea what im doing trying to convert it.  Ive tried using the godaddy support Godaddy Support but that didnt help.

So the original asp file (sendmail.asp) had (Ive changed the From address for security):-

<script language="javascript" runat="server" src="opendatabase.js"></script>
<script language="javascript" runat="server" src="paramtest.js"></script>
<script language="javascript" runat="server" src="debug.js"></script>
<script language="javascript" runat="server" src="MD5.js"></script>
<script language="javascript" runat="server" src="testlogin.js"></script>

<script language="Javascript" runat="server">

var fromEmail = "admin@testserver.co.uk";

function SendMIMEEMail(toadd,fromadd,subject,body) {
	var objCDO;
	
	try {
		objCDO = Server.CreateObject("CDONTS.NewMail");
	
		objCDO.To		= toadd;
		objCDO.From		= fromadd;
		objCDO.Subject		= subject;
		objCDO.Body		= body;
		objCDO.MailFormat	= 0; //CdoMailFormatMime;
		objCDO.BodyFormat	= 0; //CdoBodyFormatHTML;
		objCDO.Send();
	
		Response.write("{'status':'success'}");
	} catch(e) {
		Response.write("{'status':'error sending email: " + e.description'}");
	}
}

function main() {

	var dbConn,dbRec,SQL;
	
	dbConn = OpenDatabase();
	dbConn.Close();
	
}

</script>

Open in new window


I thought I could do the following but it just shows errors on page when I run it.

<script language="javascript" runat="server" src="opendatabase.js"></script>
<script language="javascript" runat="server" src="paramtest.js"></script>
<script language="javascript" runat="server" src="debug.js"></script>
<script language="javascript" runat="server" src="MD5.js"></script>
<script language="javascript" runat="server" src="testlogin.js"></script>

<script language="Javascript" runat="server">

var fromEmail = "admin@testserver.co.uk";

sendUrl="http://schemas.microsoft.com/cdo/configuration/sendusing"
smtpUrl="http://schemas.microsoft.com/cdo/configuration/smtpserver"

set objConfig=CreateObject("CDO.Configuration")
objConfig.Fields.Item(sendurl)=2
objConfig.Fields.Item(smtpUrl)="relay-hosting.secureserver.net"
objConfig.Fields.Update

function SendMIMEEMail(toadd,fromadd,subject,body) {
	var objCDO;
	
	try {
		objCDO = Server.CreateObject("CDO.Message");
	
		objCDO.To		= toadd;
		objCDO.From		= fromadd;
		objCDO.Subject		= subject;
		objCDO.Body		= body;
		objCDO.MailFormat	= 0; //CdoMailFormatMime;
		objCDO.BodyFormat	= 0; //CdoBodyFormatHTML;
		objCDO.Send();
	
		Response.write("{'status':'success'}");
	} catch(e) {
		Response.write("{'status':'error sending email: " + e.description'}");
	}
}

function main() {

	var dbConn,dbRec,SQL;
	
	dbConn = OpenDatabase();
	dbConn.Close();
	
}

</script>

Open in new window


Where am I going wrong?

Thanks

The code in the Godaddy article works just fine on a page by itself.  I have it running on several sites.  It could be that the "CDO.Configuration" is not accessible inside that function.

This page http://www.w3schools.com/asp/asp_send_email.asp shows a number of variations for different situations.

Note: Below is vbscript, not jscript

Set objMessage = CreateObject("CDO.Message") 
objMessage.Subject = subject 
objMessage.From = fromadd 
objMessage.To = toadd
objMessage.htmlBody = body

'==This section provides the configuration information for the remote SMTP server.
'==Normally you will only change the server name or IP.
objMessage.Configuration.Fields.Item _
("http://schemas.microsoft.com/cdo/configuration/sendusing") = 2 

'Name or IP of Remote SMTP Server
objMessage.Configuration.Fields.Item _
("http://schemas.microsoft.com/cdo/configuration/smtpserver") = "relay-hosting.secureserver.net"

'Server port (typically 25) 
'** check your godaddy specs for this
objMessage.Configuration.Fields.Item _
("http://schemas.microsoft.com/cdo/configuration/smtpserverport") = 25 

objMessage.Configuration.Fields.Update

'==End remote SMTP server configuration section==

objMessage.Send

Oops, I missed that.  The code from Godaddy is Definitely ASP VBscript.  Javascript in the browser can not send email.  This page shows that you can do Jscript on the server but it has to be in ASP blocks <% %>, not <script> tags.
