Sending Mail from ASP with CDONTS.NewMail Object

The NewMail object gives you the ability to send a message within an ASP page with only few lines of code. The syntax for sending mail with the NewMail object of CDONTS is as follows:

objNewMail.Send(  [From]  [, To]  [, Subject]  [, Body]  )

You can create the instance of NewMail Object with the following code.

  <%
Dim objNewMail
Set objNewMail = Server.CreateObject("CDONTS.NewMail")
%>
Properties of NewMail Object.
FromA string value contaning the email address of the sender
(for example [email protected])
ToA string value contaning the email address of the recipient.
(for example, [email protected])
Multiple addresses can be added by seperating wih ";"
SubjectThe subject line for the message.
BodyA string value contaning the body text of message.
CcA string contaning the email addresss of recipents who will recieve a copy of current message.

Methods of NewMail Object.

AttachFileThis method attaches a file to the current mesage.
AttachURLThis method attach a file to current message and associate a URL with that attachment.
SendThis method sends the message.

After the send method the NewMail object becomes invalid but stays in the memory.
You should set NewMail Object to nothing and relase the memory after the Send method.
After the send method you will have to create a new instance of NewMail Object if you want to send another message.

Let us see how we can use CDONTS.Newmail Object to send mail from an ASP Page.


<%
Option Explicit

Dim objNewMail

' First create an instance of NewMail Object
Set objNewMail = Server.CreateObject("CDONTS.NewMail")

' After an instance of NewMail Object has been created.
' If you like you can use this one line of code to send the mail.
' objNewMail.Send From, To, Subject, Message
' or you can give every value seperate

objNewMail.From = "[email protected]devasp.com"
objNewMail.To   = "[email protected]devasp.com"

' Please replace the "From" and "To" email addresses with your
' own valid email address. I recieve too many emails
' from people who test this sample and keep sending
' emails to [email protected], or they keep the "From" property
' as [email protected] and I get response of
' undeliverable emails.
' NOTE: If the "To" or "From" properties of CDONTS contain
' invalid email address you will not recieve the email.

objNewMail.Subject = "This is a test Mail"
objNewMail.Body    = "This is the Body text of this test mail."
objNewMail.Send

' After the Send method, NewMail Object become Invalid
' You should set it to nothing to relase the memory

Set objNewMail = Nothing

' If you want to send another mail
' you have to create a new instance of NewMail Object again.

Response.Write "Email has been sent"
