Hi..All sever does not support CDO. First check which Mail component your server is supporting then try it...

The reason you were getting that error was that the code was running client-side & your browser would not allow it to create ActiveX controls not marked as safe. This approach requires that all users use IE and have CDO on their machines which IMHO is undesirable.

A simple way to do what you want in classic asp is to submit a form to another page and send the mail from there server-side.
