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 = "firstname.lastname@example.org" 'the destination objCDOMail.From = "email@example.com" 'the sender objCDOMail.cc = "firstname.lastname@example.org" '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("email@example.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.
