[Pro] Formstogo - asp

Just redoing our website and I’m trying to add a contact form using Formstogo (1&1 - asp only).

I’ve followed the tutorial but when I submit a test, I get this error message:

CDO.Message.1 error ‘80040213’

The transport failed to connect to the server.

/formstogo.asp, line 169

As far as I can tell, line 169 is:

objCDOSYSMail.Send

Would anybody have an idea what I’m doing wrong?

Thanks,

Pete

This may be a server setting/form type mismatch

Is it a Windoze server that supports asp?

IIS (Internet Information Server, a Microsoft product) supports ASP. As far as I know IIS only runs on Windows Server. There was a thing called ChiliSoft ASP that ran on Linux, but I’ve never heard of anyone using it successfully in production. If your server offers you ASP and you don’t know explicitly that it is a Windows Server (oxymoron) then don’t enable it and don’t rely on it.

Thanks David - it’s a 1&1 MS Home package so I’m pretty sure it’s a Windows server.

Make sure that you have the CDOSYSMail COM object installed and properly configured to send mail for your domain. Barring that, change the configuration to point to the working mail sender.

It looks like 1&1 support PHP in all their packages so why not use that.

The PHP Feedback Form action is easy to use and there is an example at Tim’s page FreewayActions.com | PHP feedback form

Thanks for your replies. I spoke to 1&1 (my package is definitely asp only so no php solutions would work, so I’ve been told) and they took a look at the script but reckoned it should work. My broadband is with BT - would that have any bearing on the problem?

Walter - I’m afraid I’m a bit of a thickie with this sort of stuff. Where in the .asp file would I need to look and what would I need to amend?

Thanks again.

Windows servers usually have some mail service configured, and finding out which one that is and what it is called is something you’ll have to discuss with 1&1. The error message said specifically that the mail service wasn’t able (maybe wasn’t allowed) to send mail. Quote them the entire error message and see what they say. I haven’t written any ASP since the late '90s, and I’m not eager to return to its clammy undead embrace.
