  • The "SendUsing" configuration value is invalid.

    Oct 04, 2007 09:48 AM|lipos|LINK

    I'm working on a form html form that uses asp. After submitting the content on html webpage i see something like this:


    CDO.Message.1 error '80040220'

    The "SendUsing" configuration value is invalid.


     This is a code for this website:


    Dim objCDOMail    'Hold the CDONTS NewMail Object
    Dim EmailBody, txtEmailFrom, txtEmailTo, txtEmailSubject
    Set objCDOMail = Server.CreateObject("CDO.Message")

    If Request.Form("txtEmail") = "" then
        txtEmailFrom = "server"
        txtEmailFrom = Request.Form("txtEmail")
    End If

        txtEmailTo = "some email address"

        txtEmailSubject = "Website Inquiry"

        EmailBody = "You have received a website inquiry." & vbCrLf & vbCrLf
        EmailBody = EmailBody & "Name: " & Request.Form("txtName") & vbCrLf
        EmailBody = EmailBody & "Company: " & Request.Form("txtCompany") & vbCrLf & vbCrLf
        EmailBody = EmailBody & "Address: " & Request.Form("txtAddress1") &  vbCrLf
        If Request.Form("txtAddress2") <> "" then
        EmailBody = EmailBody & Request.Form("txtAddress2") & vbCrLf
        End IF
        EmailBody = EmailBody & Request.Form("txtCity") & ", " & Request.Form("txtTheState") & ", " & Request.Form("txtZip") & vbCrLf & vbCrLf
        If Request.Form("txtTelephone") <> "" then
        EmailBody = EmailBody & "Telephone: " & Request.Form("txtTelephone")& vbCrLf
        End If
        EmailBody = EmailBody & "Email: " & Request.Form("txtEmail")& vbCrLf & vbCrLf
        EmailBody = EmailBody & "Financing Need: "  & Request.Form("txtFINANCING_NEED")& vbCrLf

    objCDOMail.From = txtEmailFrom
    objCDOMail.To = txtEmailTo
    objCDOMail.Subject = txtEmailSubject
    objCDOMail.TextBody = EmailBody

    Set objCDOMail = Nothing

    Website was moved form one server to another. I assume that this has something to do with SMTP, but I'm not able to figure out how to add the IP address for the server in mu network.

    Any ideas?

    Try this format:

    Set myMail=CreateObject("CDO.Message")
    myMail.Subject="Sending email with CDO"
    myMail.TextBody="This is a message."
    myMail.Configuration.Fields.Item _
    'Name or IP of remote SMTP server
    myMail.Configuration.Fields.Item _
    ("http://schemas.microsoft.com/cdo/configuration/smtpserver") _
    'Server port
    myMail.Configuration.Fields.Item _
    ("http://schemas.microsoft.com/cdo/configuration/smtpserverport") _
    set myMail=nothing
    It's from:  http://www.w3schools.com/asp/asp_send_email.asp
    Send using is either port or pickup, but if there's no local SMTP service then neither works.  In this code, smtp.server.com is the FQDN of your mail server, or it can be the IP address.  That you can get from your administrator.
    Have you Binged a solution before posting?

    Hi Jeff, I'm getting trouble with the CDO. I am using the same code you posted, and the error is in the line: myMail.send

    The error is '80040213'

    Ttransport connection to the server failed

    Can you help me please? I've tried several other examples usind CDONTS and CDO, but I am not having success.

    Thank you very much.

     Hi Jeff,

                     You will have to check for your smtp server name: Ask your company for that.
