Naming conventions


I am getting an error which, I suspect, is related to this:

CODE -->

If errorCount = 0 Then 
Set ObjSendMail = Server.CreateObject("CDO.Message")
ObjSendMail.To = WebmasterEmail 'recipient
ObjSendMail.BCC = myCopy 'other recipient
ObjSendMail.From = name 'sender
ObjSendMail.From = email 'sender
ObjSendMail.Body = message
ObjSendMail.HTMLBody = strBody
Set ObjSendMail = Nothing  
End If 

In my form I have three fields, name, email, and message. Here I have:

CODE -->

ObjSendMail.From = name 'sender
ObjSendMail.From = email 'sender 

Does 'From' refer to the name of the person as in 'From Joe' or Joe's email? If it refers to email, what would name be?


RE: Naming conventions

Thanks for your reply, PHV

Yes, I can change From to Sender, but does Sender refer to the name of the sender or the email of the sender or doesn't it matter as long as I have them like this:

ObjSendMail.Sender = name 'sender
ObjSendMail.Sender = email 'sender

The actual error is pointing to:


Microsoft VBScript runtime error '800a01a8'

Object required: ''

/my_test.asp, line 87

Line 87 is this:

CODE -->

ObjSendMail.Configuration.Fields.Item ("http://schemas.microsoft.com/cdo/configuration/sendusing") = 2 

but I am not sure if that is a false message. Those are standard, aren't they? I have never touched them.

Thanks again for your reply.
