Microsoft JScript runtime error '800a138f'

After I send my form (via GoDaddy), I get this error, no matter whether I fill in any 'BCC', 'CC' or other fields at setup or leave them blank:

Microsoft JScript runtime error '800a138f'
Object expected
/afcc7/onlineforms/testform.asp, line 23

The 'live' form is here:

My code is this:
<!--#include file="../WA_Universal_Email/CDOSYS_JS.asp" -->
<!--#include file="../WA_Universal_Email/MailFormatting_JS.asp" -->
function WA_Universal_Email_1_SendMail(RecipientEmail) {
var MailAttachments = "";
var MailBCC = "";
var MailCC = "";
var MailTo = "";
var MailBodyFormat = "";
var MailBody = "";
var MailImportance = "";
var MailFrom = "" + String(String(Request.Form("Name"))) + "|WA|" + String(String(Request.Form("email"))) + "";
var MailSubject = "EAFCA 2010 Registration";

//Global Variables
gAddBCC = "";
gAddCC = "";
gAddRecipient = "";
gBodyFormat = "";
gSetImportance = "";

WA_MailObject = WAUE_Definition("","25","","","","");

if (RecipientEmail) {
WA_MailObject = WAUE_AddRecipient(WA_MailObject,RecipientEmail);
else {
//To Entries
WA_MailObject = WAUE_AddRecipient(WA_MailObject,"");
MailTo = gAddRecipient;

//Attachment Entries

//BCC Entries
WA_MailObject = WAUE_AddBCC(WA_MailObject,"");
MailBCC = gAddBCC;

//CC Entries
WA_MailObject = WAUE_AddCC(WA_MailObject,"");
MailCC = gAddCC;

//Body Format
WA_MailObject = WAUE_BodyFormat(WA_MailObject,0);
MailBodyFormat = gBodyFormat;

//Set Importance
WA_MailObject = WAUE_SetImportance(WA_MailObject,"3");
MailImportance = gSetImportance;

//Start Mail Body
MailBody = MailBody + "";
MailBody = MailBody + String(Request.Form("Name"));
MailBody = MailBody + "\r\n";
MailBody = MailBody + String(Request.Form("email"));
MailBody = MailBody + "\r\n";
MailBody = MailBody + String(Request.Form("Address"));
MailBody = MailBody + "";
//End Mail Body

WA_MailObject = WAUE_SendMail(WA_MailObject,MailAttachments,MailBCC,MailCC,MailTo,MailImportance,MailFrom,MailSubject,MailBody);

WA_MailObject = null;
if ((String(Request.Form("Submit")) != "undefined")) {
//WA Universal Email object="CDOSYS"
//Send Loop Once Per Entry

//Send Mail All Entries
if ("registration_confirmation.htm"!="") {

<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN" "">
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1">
<title>Test Form 1</title>

Any assistance is appreciated.

I know this isn't a good answer but I've heard all kinds of issues with GoDaddy servers. I have no problem with their core registration business, but I've never had any luck with resolving other issues with their support. I spent a week trying to get them to understand that I couldn't go to my data center in another part of the country and send a test message directly from the "screen" to their email servers. They seemed completely unaware that web sites were able to send email automatically. Their servers were just discarding email without any notice to sender or receiver. My client finally just switched services.

Thanks for that. Well, your reply was helpful in the sense that GoDaddy customer support may indeed be as 'thick' as I always thought they were... i'll have a look at your recommended resources.

I think that GoDaddy farms out other services. Never had a hick-up with their registration service, but never had success with any of their other offerings.

I'm not really making any recommendations. I've found that as soon as you recommend a hosting company, they either go belly-up or have an extended outage. :)

The link is just to an article I found.

The error implies that CDOSYS is not installed on that server.
