    Chillisoft form to mail ?

    Hello, I am very new to asp and have been trying the code that sends html formatted e-mail from big_al. My problem is my web host does not support CDONTS, rather they use Chillisoft I am told.

    I am hoping someone will help me with this, I want my forms to send info. in an e-mail (not necessarily html) and the page to redirect when submit is clicked.

    One additional consideration is that one of my forms has many, many fields, not all will be filled out and it would be nice if only the fields that are used end up in the e-mail!

    Any help is appreciated. I find this to be a very useful place and spend a lot of time reading here.

    hmm... if ur server is using chillisoft asp, that means their not using NT or win2k to host with, im not sure which email programs they would be using, so i think the best thing to do is enail them and ask

    hope that helps

    ChiliASP does have an email component but the server needs to have what's called the "Spicepack" installed. Check with your host to see if this is the case.

    If so, then the Chili!Mail component is compatible with CDONTS.Newmail syntactically except the following properties are NOT available:

    ContentBase

    ContentLocation

    MailFormat

    Version

    AttachURL

    SetLocaleIDs


    Also, you should check out the ChiliASP documentation available here...

    http://216.163.88.13/caspdoc/360docs/

    Actually, I think their documentation on VBScript is better and clearer than the online MS Scripting site.

    Anyways, hope that helps....have a good one!

    Thanks for your suggestions, I've sent a message asking about the 'Spicepack'

    When I try big_al's code then I should leave out the line

    objMail.MailFormat = cdoMailFormatMime

    if they do have the spicepack?

    I don't think the server does have this capability because when I contacted them the first time they said no CDONTS. Does this mean I can't use ASP to send my form input by e-mail?

    If the Spicepack is not installed on your host then I would look at other ways to get your scripts to send email - CGI perhaps? It doesn't mean that your whole site needs to be CGI but just the email part.

    I have to admit though - I'm not too strong with CGI.

    Have a cool day!

    Yah, no Spicepack - now going the CGI route I guess...

    Thanks!

    Bloody amazing isn't it!

    What use is ASP without an email component I ask!

    Chilisoft charge an extra $250 or so for the Spicepak....you think your ISP would provide for all their clients!?

    Oh well....good luck anyway with it.
