Sending E-Mails with ASP Pages

    Sending an email with asp is fairly easy, all you need is CDONTS (Collaboration Data Objects for NT Server, installed with IIS), or a special component like SMTPmail by SoftArtisans, or AspEmail ( free ) by Persits Software Inc (there are more available).

    In this article I'll show how to send emails with CDO, because it's available to everyone and
    components work in a very similar way. First we have to create instance of the NewMail object.

    Code:
    <%
    	Option Explicit
    
    	Dim objCDOMail
    	Set objCDOMail = Server.CreateObject("CDONTS.NewMail")
    %>
    The methods and property's of this object are very obvious.

    Code:
    <%
    	objCDOMail.To = "somebody@somewhere.com"   'the destination
    	objCDOMail.From = "me@mydomain.com"   'the sender
    	objCDOMail.cc = "info@mydomain.com"   'carbon copy
    
    	Dim txtBody
    	txtBody = "This email has been sent by an asp script"
    	objCDOMail.Subject = "CDONTS"   'the subject
    	objCDOMail.Body = txtBody   'the body
    	objCDOMail.Send   'fire off the email
    %>
    
    So far it has been pretty easy, hasn't it? There's more.

    Code:
    <%
    	objCDOMail.AttachFile("c:\wwwroot\mysite\" & _
    		"MyAttachement.doc", "pricelist.doc")
    	objCDOMail.Bcc("blind@mysite.com")
    	objCDOMail.Importance = 1
    %>
    The first rule defines an attachment ("PATH\TO\FILE", filename_that_appears)
    The second rule sends a blind carbon copy The third rule specifies the message's importance

    Importance:
    0 -> low
    1 -> default
    2 -> high

    Thats it, I hope this article has been useful and i hope that now you will feel confident sending automated newsletters, confirmation emails and so on.

    Hi,
    The mail goes to the Bulk Folder because the your mail provider detected it as spam. If the mail does not come from a listed Mail Server, it is usually considered as spam.
    http://dsbl.org/main
    http://www.spamhaus.org/xbl/
    check these links, if your IP is present in their database, some servers might not even accept the mail.
    So, one thing you can do is get your SMTP server registered there.
