    ASP E-mail Question


    My mail server and web server are 2 different servers.

    Both servers run win2k.

    Therefore the web server does not have an SMPT server.

    ASP throws the Server.CreateObject failed error when using a CDONT.NewMail object.

    What I need to be able to do is configure IIS or ASP on the web server to look at the mail server for the SMTP server.

    Is this possible? If so, how is IIS/ASP configured for this?

    Thanks

    As far as I know there is no built in support for this. you can do one of two things. Just turn on the SMTP server on the machine running IIS and you can just send mail through it. Or two, look into a third party component. ASPMail is a popular one.

    http://www.aspobjects.com/ASP_Components/Email/SMTP/

    there is a whole slew of them.
