    formmail on NT?

    One of my clients is on an NT server and it appears that the version of formmail (1.92) that I have doesn't work on NT. Is there a way to get it to work on NT or do I have to look for another script? If I need a different script, which is a good one? I've never worked on sites hosted on NT before.

    Thanks.

    are you running perl on your server???
    you try setting up blat.
    [url]I got nothing/url]

    For clarity's sake, don't use "<ip address of hostname>" use the ACTUAL 32-bit numeric IP address of the machine.

    I would recommend installing CDONTS and using that for mail

    Unfortunately, I don't have root access as my client is hosting at "Bell Hosting" That adds to the problem right?

    Here's what the hosting company says....

    Please take note that we do not support BLAT on our servers. We do, however, support ASPMail.
    Are there any free scripts that I can use that are supported on this system?

    Any suggestions are greatly apprecaited

    Try

    Code:
    Set Mailer = Server.CreateObject("SMTPsvg.Mailer")
    Mailer.FromName   = "Joe’s Widgets Corp."
    Mailer.FromAddress= "[email protected]"
    Mailer.RemoteHost = "mailhost.localisp.net"
    Mailer.AddRecipient "John Smith", "[email protected]"
    Mailer.Subject    = "Great SMTP Product!"
    Mailer.BodyText   = "Dear Stephen" & VbCrLf & "Your widgets order has been processed!"
    if Mailer.SendMail then
      Response.Write "Mail sent..."
    else
      Response.Write "Mail send failure. Error was " & Mailer.Response
    end if
