ActiveX component can't create object: 'CDONTS.NewMail' - ASP

By: Emiley J. in Asp.net Tutorials on 2008-04-08  

Normally this happens when you are trying to send email from your asp page using CDONTS but your system doesn't have the cdonts.dll file. You can solve this issue by copying the cdonts.dll from any windows 2000 server (It will be normally found in the c:\winnt\system32 folder). Copy this file to your webserver and copy it to the c:\windows\system32 folder.

Just copying the file is not enough. You have to register the Active X component in that system. You can do it by following the steps below.

  1. Copy the cdonts.dll to the c:\windows\system32 folder or c"\winnt\system32 (whichever is applicable to you)
  2. Open the Command prompt
  3. Run the following command "regsvr32 cdonts.dll"
  4. You will now see a alert box that says component successfully registered.

Now you can send your emails from your asp using the CDONTS.

Sample asp to send email is given below.

Dim MyCDONTSMail2
    Dim HTML
    Set MyCDONTSMail2 = CreateObject("CDONTS.NewMail")
    HTML = "<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC""-//IETF//DTD HTML//EN"">"
    HTML = HTML & "<html>"
    HTML = HTML & "<body>"
	HTML = HTML & "<p align=""Center"">"
	HTML = HTML & "<h4 align=""center""><u>You can put the heading here
	HTML = HTML & "</p>"

	' The following four lines will get the form fields and values and add it to the email body.

    for x = 1 to Request.Form.count() 
        HTML = HTML & Request.Form.key(x) & " = "
        HTML = HTML & Request.Form.item(x) & "<br>"
    next 

	HTML = HTML & "</body>"
    HTML = HTML & "</html>"
    MyCDONTSMail2.From= "[email protected]"
    MyCDONTSMail2.To= "[email protected]"
    MyCDONTSMail2.cc= "[email protected]" 'if required
    MyCDONTSMail2.bcc= "[email protected]" 'if required

    MyCDONTSMail2.Subject="Your email subject"
    MyCDONTSMail2.BodyFormat=0
    MyCDONTSMail2.MailFormat=0
    MyCDONTSMail2.Body=HTML
    MyCDONTSMail2.Send
    set MyCDONTSMail2=nothing
