Default e-mail


I want the visitorst at my web page to be able to sent e-mail from within the page. The e-mail are going to have some predefined text. The e-mail are going to be sent to a number of receivers (at the same time)from a check-list. The check-list is generated from my access-db. How?

Internet has become favorable with that tool...thank you Tim Berners-Lee!

Need More Info Like what kind of server . But this will give you a start

    Set objSendMail = CreateObject("CDO.Message")
    objSendMail.Subject = "Your Subject"
    'objSendMail.MailFormat = 0
    'objSendMail.BodyFormat = 0
    objSendMail.From = "you@yourdomain"

For each MailAddr in request.form(Your check list)

        Var = trim(rs("MailAddr"))

Thank you casselj!

What a deft tool this http-network has been! My asp pages is stil on my own pc. I have installed the boundled ISS version. I am new to this, I am still reading Beginning ASP 3.0 (Wrox). My background is from within the printing-biz, from late 1970-tech to the first Mac in 1983. And the fantastic HyperCard. If you know to this? Sorry I did never use Mac at work.

What a digression!

PS. Is BODY ment t be a var or do you mean <BODY>!?

Send a message via AIM to mat41

In that example body is a variable. Dont forget to place:
<% option explicit %>
at the very top of your page. This will prompt you to Dim variables - There are variables that need to be dimmed in the example above. What I have found to be the most trouble free mail method is cdoSys. Google cdoSys mail example for a working example including additional parameters not illustrated above.
