This article contains an example that describes how to collect information from a user on a .HTM page, and then use that information to send mail to a recipient using Collaboration Data Objects for Windows NT Server (CDONTS) over SMTP. This article includes sample code for the HTM and ASP files as well as information on how to configure your Microsoft Management Console (MMC) Default SMTP Server.
The syntax for sending mail with the NewMail object of CDONTS is as follows:
objNewMail.Send([From][, To][, Subject][, Body][, Importance] ) objNewMail Required. This NewMail object. From Optional. String. The full messaging address to be identified as the sender (for example, someone@Microsoft.com) To Optional. String. A list of full messaging addresses of recipients. The individual recipient addresses are separated by semicolons. (for example, someone@Microsoft.com) Subject Optional. String. The subject line for the message. Body Optional. IStream object or String. The text of the message. Only C/C++ and Java programs can use an IStream object for the Body parameter. They should pass an IUnknown object that returns an IStream interface in response to QueryInterface. Microsoft Visual Basic supports the IDispatch interface and not IUnknown, so it cannot use an IStream object. Importance Optional. Long. The importance associated with the message, High, Normal or Low. This article sets the required value depending upon which option button the user selects.
