Default Basic CDOSYS email form question

I'm a designer not a programmer and have a basic question about my mail form. Currently if someone enters an email address that isn't formatted properly (EG. just without @.com etc.), the browser brings up a server error message. However I would like the user to be redirected to a specified page, but I don't know how to do this.
If someone could let me know what code to use and where to insert it, that would be greatly appreciated.
thanks in advance,

Dim MyMail
Dim MyBody
Dim MyEmailFrom
Dim MySubject
Dim MyName
Dim MyPhone
Dim MyWeddDate
Dim MyWeddLocation
Dim MyHowHearAboutUs
Dim MyReferralFrom
Dim MyMessage

MyEmailFrom = Request.Form("EmailFrom")
MySubject = "Wedding Films Website Enquiry"
MyName = Request.Form("Name")
MyPhone = Request.Form("Phone")
MyWeddDate = Request.Form("WeddDate")
MyWeddLocation = Request.Form("WeddLocation")
MyHowHearAboutUs = Request.Form("HowHearAboutUs")
MyReferralFrom = Request.Form("ReferralFrom")
MyMessage = Request.Form("Message")

MyBody = MyBody & "Name: "& MyName & VbCrLf
MyBody = MyBody & "Phone: "& MyPhone & VbCrLf
MyBody = MyBody & "WeddDate: "& MyWeddDate & VbCrLf
MyBody = MyBody & "WeddLocation: "& MyWeddLocation & VbCrLf
MyBody = MyBody & "HowHearAboutUs: "& MyHowHearAboutUs & VbCrLf
MyBody = MyBody & "ReferralFrom: "& MyReferralFrom & VbCrLf
MyBody = MyBody & "Message: "& MyMessage & VbCrLf

Set objErrMail= Server.CreateObject("CDO.Message")
With objErrMail
.From = MyEmailFrom
.To = "anthony@weddingfilms.com.au"
.Subject = "Wedding Website Enquiry"
.TextBody = MyBody
.Configuration.Fields.Item("http://schemas.microsoft.com/cdo/configuration/sendusing") = 2
.Configuration.Fields.Item("http://schemas.microsoft.com/cdo/configuration/smtpserver") = "localhost"
.Configuration.Fields.Item("http://schemas.microsoft.com/cdo/configuration/smtpserverport") = 25
End With

Hi there,

You can add On Error Resume Next to your code which continues executing code when an erorr occurs. Then after you "faulty" code you can diagnose the error number. When it's not 0 an error occured and you redirect the user using Response.Redirect("NewPage.asp")

For more details:


Don't for get to turn Resume Next off again using Goto 0 as explained here:


Hope this helps,
