ASP (classic) CDO emails to a mac server?

ASP (classic) CDO emails to a mac server?

ASP (classic) CDO emails to a mac server?

Hi All,

I have been using a third party that hosts my website and front end (smart host) email server. These have been running on two different Windows 03 boxes and everything has worked as expected for a long time; i can email using CDO from an asp webpage on IIS to the email server and the email is sent out. Over the weekend the email server had a hardware failure so he switched to a mac email server. I don't know which one, only that's it's really small and has no cooling fans. Emails are coming in again but my whole website is broken. Is there a script i need to use to send emails through a mac server? This is what i have been using with Win03 IIS to Win03 email server:

sch = "http://schemas.microsoft.com/cdo/configuration "
Set cdoConfig = Server.CreateObject("CDO.Configuration")

With cdoConfig.Fields
 .Item(sch & "sendusing") = 2
 .Item(sch & "smtpserver") = "mail.xxxxxx.net"
End With

Set objMail = Server.CreateObject("CDO.Message")
Set objMail.Configuration = cdoConfig
objMail.From = email
objMail.To = toemail
objMail.Subject = "Email Message"
objMail.HTMLBody = strBody

Set objMail = Nothing
Set cdoConfig = Nothing

RE: ASP (classic) CDO emails to a mac server?

As long as the SMTP Server name points to a valid mail server address that accepts mail on port 25 it does not matter what OS the mail server is on.
