Send an E-mail Using ASP (CDOSYS)

For Windows packages

Follow the instructions below to send an e-mail using ASP.

CDOSYS, which replaced CDONTS in 2000, provide you with Collaboration Data Objects in order to send authenticated e-mails (requiring a username and password) in ASP.

For help sending mail using ASP.NET, please reference How do I send an e-mail in ASP.NET?

Using the example below as a test, you will have to replace some of the details already provided.

CONST SMTPSendUsing = 2 ' Send using Port (SMTP over the network)
CONST SMTPServer = "smtp.1and1.com"
CONST SMTPServerPort = 25
CONST SMTPConnectionTimeout = 10 'seconds
CONST SMTPUser = "email@domain.com"
CONST SMTPPassword = "password"

dim sSubject, sEmail, sMailBody, sFrom, sReadReceipt, sMsg
sSubject = "Test"
sEmail = "recipient@domain.com"
sMailBody = "This is a test message."
sFrom = "sender@domain.com"
sReadReceipt = true
