Email not returned

Email not returned

I have an asp page which is working OK on its present server. The purpose of the email is to inform when a button which is the link to another page on another website, has been clicked.

The page uses jmail at the moment but I have to change to a server which does not have jmail installed. I wish now to use cdosys.

I tried to get Universal Email working but it does not return the email expected.

(UE does not seem to work too well in as much the wizard does not insert the name given to MailTo: I can fill that easy enough).

I cannot see why the email does not return.

I found this link showthread.php?t=16040 and downloaded as suggested
I downloaded the WAUniversalEmail.xml file but found the old file at

C:\Documents and Settings\JohnHardy\Application Data\Adobe\Dreamweaver 9\Configuration\Shared\WebAssist\UniversalEmail\xml not as the location suggested

I copied the file there but it made no difference.

Can anyone see why the email is not returned please?

I attach a zipped file of this page.
Thank you

the to address is not set by the wizard at line 10:
MailTo = ""

that is just setting a variable that can be used later, it is set in the wizard by the line that instantiates the mail object:

The email behavior is triggered by a form post, but i don't see a form on this page?

You are using localhost as the email server, are you sure this is correct for your host? you should double check with them. and double check that they have a CDOSYS server in place to begin with.

Thanks Jason
I am testing on my local pc so localhost is OK. I use this for testing usually.

Am I right in assuming cdosys is part of XP?

You are right there is no form on the page so I reset to submit current page and also placed a form on the page but it does not return the email.

I have no form on the jmail page code and thats working OK.

No CDOSYS is not a default of windows XP. Testing emails on your local server requires that you install and configure an email server like MS Exchange.

I dont recommend testing emails on your local server, you should test sending emails on the remote host where an SMTP server is already in place.
