Sending emails using CDOSYS

Sending emails using CDOSYS

Sending emails using CDOSYS

Hi All
One of my pages sends invoices and letters by email using CDOSYS. Most are sent successfully, but occasionally the page hangs. I have narrowed the reason down to two causes. either the email address is not liked, normally a Hotmail address, or I have sent too many in a specific time period.

My question is this. Can I trap this error in code so I can report back to the user with a "Customer No nnnn email not sent" message? I am using classic ASP

If I rewrote the page in ASP.NET, could I trap the error?
