NewMail object gives you the ability to send a message within an ASP page with only few lines of code. This article will help you understand different properties and methods of CDONTS.NewMail Object.

objNewMail.Send(  [From]  [, To]  [, Subject]  [, Body]  )

You can create the instance of NewMail Object with the following code.

  <%
  Dim objNewMail Set objNewMail = Server.CreateObject("CDONTS.NewMail")
  %>
  

Properties of NewMail Object.

Methods of NewMail Object.

AttachURL This method attach a file to current message and associate a URL with that attachment.

After the send method you will have to create a new instance of NewMail Object if you want to send another message.

Let us see how we can use CDONTS.Newmail Object to send mail from an ASP Page.

<%
Option Explicit

Dim objNewMail

' First create an instance of NewMail Object
Set objNewMail = Server.CreateObject("CDONTS.NewMail")

' After an instance of NewMail Object has been created.
' If you like you can use this one line of code to send the mail.
' objNewMail.Send From, To, Subject, Message
' or you can give every value seperate

objNewMail.From = "webmaster@devasp.com"
objNewMail.To   = "test@devasp.com"

' Please replace the "From" and "To" email addresses with your
' own valid email address. I recieve too many emails
' from people who test this sample and keep sending
' emails to test@devasp.com, or they keep the "From" property
' as webmaster@devasp.com and I get response of
' undeliverable emails.
' NOTE: If the "To" or "From" properties of CDONTS contain
' invalid email address you will not recieve the email.

objNewMail.Subject = "This is a test Mail"
objNewMail.Body    = "This is the Body text of this test mail."
objNewMail.Send

' After the Send method, NewMail Object become Invalid
' You should set it to nothing to relase the memory

Set objNewMail = Nothing

' If you want to send another mail
' you have to create a new instance of NewMail Object again.

Response.Write "Email has been sent"
