    Default Automating Outlook from ASP

    I want my ASP code to send an email but can&#039t use CDO because I&#039m behind a firewall and the SMTP port has been closed.<BR><BR>I previously developped a VB application that sends emails by automating Outlook. It worked perfectly so I figured I would port the VB code to ASP. Unfortunatly, it didn&#039t work :-(<BR><BR>Here is a snippet from my VB prog:<BR>Dim objMail As Outlook.MailItem<BR>Set objMail = CreateObject("Outlook.Application.8").CreateItem(o lMailItem)<BR>...<BR><BR>Here is the ASP version:<BR>Dim objMail<BR>Set objMail = CreateObject("Outlook.Application.8").CreateItem(o lMailItem)<BR>...<BR><BR>The "CreateItem" method causes an error so I modified the code:<BR>Dim objMail, objItem<BR>Set objMail = CreateObject("Outlook.Application.8")<BR>Set objItem = objMail.CreateItem(olMailItem)<BR>...<BR><BR>Alas, I receive the same error message. Anyone can help?

    Try this:<BR>http://support.microsoft.com/support/kb/articles/q197/9/20.asp<BR><BR>Or:<BR><BR>http://support.microsoft.com/support/kb/articles/q176/9/14.asp<BR><BR>Neither of these Articles directly work with Outlook, but they may give you better alternatives then CDO/ CDONTS.<BR><BR>

    The first link seems great but I receive an error because the server can&#039t create an object of type "MAPI.Session".<BR><BR>How do I install this object on my IIS server?
